Why Academic Transcriptions Are a Boon to Students?

So, you are all set to start your dissertation. You have all the necessary interview recordings in place and have begun to condense it down into one coherent, logical piece of research. But the fact is that, while the hour or so spent with the interview subject can be enjoyable, same cannot be said about transcribing those interviews. This is because an average individual takes about six to eight minutes to transcribe an interview which is one minute long. Now project this to over an hour-long interview, and you’ll be talking about six to eight hours. Again stretch this to over a dozen interviews, with an average time of over one hour? Much to your frustrations, you’ll have to skip a few weekend fun to pull it off.

This is why it makes perfect sense to partner with a reliable academic transcription service provider for your academic transcriptions. These service providers are professionals and can cut down on the time required to transcribe interviews. This helps you get more time to focus on the other critical elements of your dissertations, thereby ensuring things get completed on time. Add to this benefit of mandatory proofing of your work before submitting it, you are most likely to benefit from something like a 2-in-1 proposition.

Even if you are not one of those vocal supporter of transcribing interviews, and instead, would love to retain it in the audio files format, consider how annoying it could get to go back and look for a quote in one of those interviews. It would be like searching for a needle in a haystack. With transcribed files, all you need to do is to run a simple search function in MS Word and locate the quote. Furthermore, professionally transcribed academic recordings also have the potential to stimulate a thought and take your dissertation to a new height.
