Academic Research Transcription

Research Transcription

For our academic research clients, transcription is a very necessary and substantial investment. At eScribe, we like to make it as simple and as cost-effective for you as possible by providing pre recording coaching to the templates we’ve designed based on our years of experience, for the best possible results.

The accuracy of your results is paramount. The sheer volume of your material can be mind-boggling. eScribe can help you from the beginning by showing you how to create an efficient recording in the first instance, which will keep transcribing costs down and generate far more accurate transcripts. 

Research Conversational Analysis Transcription

We are able to transcribe your recordings into a format that’s compatible with your analysis using your software package (NVivo compatible transcripts) or your manual coding. Let us help you to get it right when it’s easiest by starting from the desired end result and working back.
