Transcription Service for Dartmouth College:
Generia is a PhD research student of the Dartmouth College, focusing on criminal psychology. As a part of her studies she accomplishes lots of field interviews with victims, criminals, medical practitioners, psychiatrists, and police officials at areas of crime, prisons, hospitals and many more. Like any other research student, Generia accumulates all her records and interviews through some audio recorder or iPhone and shortly make use of them for her research.
The Actual Challenge:
Mingled with the anxiety of a student and complexity of the research topic, Generia at the end of the day piles up with huge volumes of interview recordings. As a result of this, she is forced to spend a large amount of time in transcribing her interviews by herself. This on the other hand puts off Generia from moving ahead in her research studies and results. Being a student and not a trained transcriber, it consumed valuable time to transcribe her recordings. Conversely the cost to hire a practiced transcriber with an ideal level of precision was far above the ground for a student.
In the case of this Dartmouth student, the interview timing was mostly unpredictable. Organizing a perfect timing with well surrounded recording systems and eminent gadgets were impossible. Every time it was at short notice. It was at that time, she came in contact with TranscriptionStar through one of her friends named Sarah, from a different university.
