What is group discussion transcription?

Group discussion transcription is an effective method of capturing multiple speaker situations in a variety of settings, including focus group discussions for capturing qualitative data, presentations or meetings.

We have nearly 30 years' experience transcribing group discussions. Our transcribers LISTEN closely to the discussion from your audio or video group discussion [on Zoom, Microsoft teams etc] and research any jargon as required, ensuring that the discussion that's taken place is accurately reflected in the finished transcript.

If required, voice identities are tracked to each of the participants and can be colour coded, ensuring common themes can be more easily identified.

Types of transcription...

We offer three types of transcription service + extras

Our most popular service. Everything is typed out but omits fillers, repetitions, and any stumbling over words:

“I did a degree in criminal justice and psychology and then after that, got a job working for a drug and alcohol charity and I was based in a Probation Service.  I was a case worker for people who are on probation and needed support with their  drug and alcohol use.”

Everything is said and how it’s said:

“I-I did a degree in criminal justice and psychology and then erm, after that, after that I g-got a job working for a, a drug and alcohol charity and I-I was based in a Probation Service.  [Pause] I was a, a case worker – for um, people who are on probation and need- needed support with their er, drug and alcohol use.”

Provides a more concise read, summarising the audio. Dialogue is still transcribed and some verbatim quotes are included, but repetition, non-relevant discussion is omitted and some sentences edited:

“I did a degree in criminal justice and psychology and got a job working for a drug and alcohol charity based in a Probation Service.  I was a case worker for people on probation, who needed support with their  drug and alcohol use.”

In addition to our transcription services we offer the following optional extras…

– Time stamping

– Voice ID – up to 8 respondents

– Anonymisation:

Researchers are being increasingly asked to archive anonymised and decontextualised data, however they still need a complete version for analysis and their records. For a small extra charge, we can provide two versions of one transcript, one complete version and one anonymised, with all personal information being removed.

I have worked with Nicki and her team for over a year and would not work with anyone else.  Transcribe It is efficient, fast and the quality of the transcripts is second to none. Her team have worked on some of the most difficult projects and always the quality of transcription is of the highest standard.  Nicki is also a delight to work with, she is warm, friendly but also highly professional.  If you are thinking transcription, think Transcribe It.
