Create Content That Can Be Quickly Acted Upon

When it comes to quantitative data, once researchers receive the research, they can work immediately. The numbers are spelt out in detail, and patterns can be seen.

Make Research Materials Available To All

A research team can analyze content straight from audio or video recordings. But how frequently does a researcher work independently, with no one giving them feedback or direction?

Transform Content Into Something Searchable

A significant component of academic research is the review process. The team must ensure that all of the information presented is accurate.

Expedite The Research Process

You can use the search function in your text processor to immediately jump to keywords or insights in a discussion. Text files are significantly smaller than audio recordings and are much easier to share with other organization members.

How To Transcribe Research Interviews?

What is Data Transcription?

When you hear the word "data," what comes to mind? Most people immediately see numbers in rows, statistics, and measurements. You might see computers or robots gathering data, performing calculations, and spewing responses based on immutable, cold facts.
That is one type of data out of several. Quantitative data, such as temperature or population size, can be expressed as numbers and are carefully measured. However, researchers and other experts use other types of data.
Qualitative data is a second sort of data. The measurement and analysis of qualitative data are less precise, subjective, and open-ended. Instead of using numbers, this kind of data is expressed in words. 
Qualitative data analysis may use preferences or opinions when describing attributes or characteristics.
Companies may use qualitative data, for instance, to comprehend the choices or preferences of various consumers or consumer groups. Medical scientists may examine qualitative data to better understand how or why people make particular health decisions.

Why Would You Transcribe Qualitative Data?

Instead of seeking precise, tangible, or objective solutions, qualitative research focuses more on examining a concept or a topic. Data from qualitative research cannot be quantified with thermometers and scales because it focuses on persons, groups, and cultures. Instead, questionnaires, observations, or interviews are used to collect qualitative data. This may make recording and replicating qualitative data more complex than quantitative data.
Qualitative research aims to comprehend a person's viewpoint or the reasons behind their behavior. Thus, researchers are free to hold and record focus groups, conversations in small groups, one-on-one interviews, or observations of an individual or group. They could record video or audio to capture and store the resulting data.
Essential data are produced by these interviews and other incidents. Yet, most of the time, that data is unstructured and needs to be processed to be understood by researchers.
Qualitative data transcription becomes crucial in this situation. Transcribing any original audio or video recording results in a text-based representation. Qualitative data transcription is a great starting point for organizing and evaluating your data properly.
For qualitative research, transcription is essential because it:
1. Creates A Text-Based Structure For Qualitative Data And Information
2. Simplifies The Analysis And Sharing Of Data
3. Enables Researchers To Spend More Time Immersed In The Data They Gather And Aids Them In Using The Data To Tell A Story
4. Makes It Simpler To Find Patterns
5. Maintains The Data's Accuracy And Integrity.
6. Allows Scientists To Concentrate On Their Observations
7. Lets Researchers Focus On Their Statements Instead Of Worrying About Note-Taking
