Here at CA Transcriptions Services (CATS) we are qualitative researchers ourselves and therefore we understand the joy one can experience when transcribing a massive data collection. Sometimes however, life gets in the way and there just isn’t enough time in the day to get all your transcription completed. When that happens we are here to help!
CATS provides a range of transcription services for those working with audio and video data. As experienced qualitative researchers, who have specialised in conversation analysis, we not only provide standard orthographic (verbatim) transcription at a competitive rate, but also highly detailed transcriptions using Jeffersonian notation which highlights important details such as pause length, emphasis, intonation, pitch, overlap, laughter etc. In our research careers we have worked on several projects and with various types of data. We therefore appreciate that you may have particular analytical needs and are happy to tailor our transcripts to highlight these. For example we are able to pay extra attention to practices such as gaze or overlap.
In the following pages we outline our transcription options, fees and provide some examples of the transcription services we can offer. We will be highlighting news of interest to qualitative researchers in our blog. Please feel free to contact us with any queries you may have and do enjoy our data examples. We look forward to working with you.
