Qualitative Research is the way we explore, investigate, learn, discover, try and test things.
Research almost invariably requires careful note-taking, precise record-keeping, and thorough data analysis. One very important part of this process is the transcription of the audio of recorded dictation, interviews, or even focus groups.
99%+ Accuracy Is the Key
When collecting qualitative research it is important to keep careful track of your records and notes. Some researchers use a digital recorder or app for their interviews so that they can refer to the interviewee’s exact words more readily. When transcribed, these recordings allow the researcher to search for keywords, better analyze themes, and review the document at a glance rather than searching back and forth through your recordings to find the important themes and messages.
Even more helpful are qualitative research transcription services that offer timestamps. If a word is difficult to determine because of the audio quality, the accent of the speaker, or several speakers speaking on top of each other, a timestamp can help one find the exact location in the recording where the statement is made.
Qualitative research transcription services must be accurate, as inaccuracies skew research findings – with a potentially detrimental impact on the results and learnings.
Transcription of Research Interviews
In the course of academic research, you will have likely conducted interviews that require transcription. Before you identify themes in your audio interview data, you need the spoken words reproduced in a text format you require. That’s where we come in.
