Your Student Transcript

Do you have a backlog of recordings – interviews and focus groups – for the qualitative analysis required for your Master’s degree or doctoral research? You need to write your thesis or dissertation, turning your research into a well-prepared report, presenting your findings, conclusions, and recommendations for future research. But you certainly don’t have the time (or the energy!) to listen to hours of recordings and transcribe hundreds of pages. You simply want the recordings converted into documents, and quickly, so you can access the material, study it, analyze it, assess the findings and write, write, write!

Perhaps you are a lecturer who could benefit from having your lectures transcribed for your students. Or a student who simply prefers to record lectures and classroom discussions so you don’t have to busy yourself with taking notes.

Our Student Transcription Services
