UNIVERSITY RESEARCH INTERVIEW TRANSCRIPTION SERVICES
University research interview transcription forms a core part of our business. We understand the importance of providing universities with a first class interview transcription service that appeciates their budgetary constraints. We can transcribe a variety of recordings including one-to-one research interviews or multiple participant research interviews, academic symposia or conference proceedings, academic lectures, focus groups, roundtable discussions and group meetings, as well as transcribing podcasts, webcasts, speeches and presentations.
Our meticulous attention to detail, resulting in a high quality transcript and often provided to tight deadlines, has led to us becoming the preferred supplier for a number of university departments, colleges and research institutions. We work closely with university researchers when there is a need for transcripts to be formatted for use in qualitative research software such as NVivo or Atlas Ti. We ensure that each transcript is delivered as completed, rather than waiting to deliver the whole project at the end. This allows researchers to analyse material as it arrives rather than in bulk.
We offer a discounted transcription service to universities and believe that our Testimonial page speaks for itself. We take our clients' confidentiality very seriously. Our booking form contains a confidentiality clause but we are happy to sign whatever specific non-disclosure agreement universities may require.
Each of the following university transcription services are dealt with in more detail on their own dedicated pages, but these are some of the ways in which we've been able to help universities in the past.
Interviews - we are specialists in research interview transcription, be it one-to-one interview transcription or those with multiple participants and have handled numerous large scale interview projects.
Conference or academic lecture transcription is one of our specialties with experience gained over many years of transcribing a wide variety of events including academic lectures, presentations, speeches, plenary sessions, symposia and seminars. We realise that conferences represent a significant investment of time and resources for any university and we're committed to providing a professional, accurate and cost effective discounted conference transcription service, whatever your length of conference.
Focus groups / meetings - having gathered together a group of people to discuss an issue, product or topic, it's essential to capture that meeting with a clear recording. We have years of experience of transcribing focus groups and meetings, as well as roundtable type discussions.
prices per audio minute below are for digital
or mini disc recordings. However, we are
still happy to provide an audio tape transcription service for
standard audio tapes, mini
tapes, micro cassettes. We DON'T offer
a discounted rate for analogue recordings as the tape quality can be
so variable. Please
see our comparison
of digital and analogue recordings.
If you consider your analogue recording to be of excellent clarity,
then we would be happy to listen to a representative sample and provide
a per minute price if we can. We hope our Guidelines
and Equipment pages will answer any specific
queries you may have about setting up your recordings.
some of the various universities, colleges, organisations and institutions
for whom we are the supplier of choice.
ALL RECORDINGS are listened to a second time, Internet research is carried out to identify names or terminology, and transcripts proofread by the Director, Irene Boston. There is no extra charge for this service. Not all transcription companies do this, some don't even proofread, so make sure you ask the right questions before choosing a service.
any large scale transcription, whether an ongoing research interview
project, a large conference or a series of meetings, we would recommend
giving as much advance notice of your requirements as possible.
This allows us to reserve space in our schedule, which is particularly
important if we're offering a discounted rate. Most established transcription
companies have a long list of regular customers and to suddenly find
a block of free space for a large project can be difficult. So book
your transcription company in advance, the same way you would
an event venue or interview schedule. We pride ourselves on our project
management experience for large scale projects and our flexibility
to meet your deadlines.
Free Digital Recording - we convert all minidiscs, audio tapes, micro cassettes and mini tapes to digital audio files for ease of transcription. This is only possible with a clear quality recording. As part of our service, we offer all clients the digital version of their recording free of charge, sent to them using a secure file transfer service, provided the client has Broadband.
We provide a free File Upload service for all digital recordings via our website to ensure prompt delivery to our transcription team. We can also download your audio sound files directly from your website if you prefer, or you can post CDs directly. For all audio tapes, especially if they're the only originals, we advise sending them using a traceable method, such as Registered Post, but please only send us the originals. Copies will be of a much poorer quality and will increase transcription time and, therefore, costs.
We hope this provides you with a thorough overview of our discounted transcription services specially aimed at universities. Feel free to call (01485 543746) or email us for a detailed quote and turnaround times based on our current schedule, or browse our Overview or FAQ pages.
