Tired of sifting through reams of waffle to get to what you want in your transcripts?

Then you should try our summary transcription service. Condensing the moderator introductions and removing superfluous chit chat to ensure all the detail of the core themes of the meeting or group are included.

Repetition & ‘non relevant’ spoken word is omitted and interviewer/moderator questions are condensed to a minimum, focusing on the answers of respondents and key speakers. Our summaries save you time, simple as that. Why wade through pages and pages of waffle when we can delete non relevant text and leave you with the key information you need? Someone who has not attended the group would be able to read a summary and still gain a detailed understanding of what took place.

If you still want to be able to directly quote speakers from your transcripts then you can go for our ‘Summary with Quotes’ option. This service provides the same great condensed service but with all pertinent verbatim quotes come highlighted.

This means you can rest assured the important quotes are easy to find and unedited – in other words they’re bright yellow and straight from the horse’s mouth.
