Some recommendations for transcription and transcription software
Transcribing data is an important part of preparing multimedia data for deeper analysis. You could create a new document in ATLAS.ti Web and type your transcription in there, or you could type your transcription in a transcription software of your choice and later import your full transcript into ATLAS.ti Web for further coding and analysis. If you are looking for automatic transcription, you can use a dedicated software or transcription service, and then import your finished transcript into ATLAS.ti.
There is a great variety of transcription software you may choose from. For example:
- Express Scribe (they also offer a free version)
- InqScribe (they also offer a free version)
- Dragon Naturally Speaking
Of course, these are just some of the many options. We recommend you search for the transcription software that will best suit your needs (such as softwares that permit different kinds of multimedia data transcription, have comfortable keyboard shortcuts for pausing and replaying, and so on).
