Focus Group transcription can be provided for university students, medical professionals, market research legal and property professionals. Focus groups are persons discussing an issue or issues. Our transcripts will identify who is speaking by inserting their initial down the left hand side each time they speak. If you do not need the speakers identifying please let us know as this will reduce the cost.
You can view examples of our transcripts on the home page (these are based on one to one interviews but the layout and principle are the same).
Types of focus transcription include:
Recorders for large groups
You will benefit from purchasing recorders specifically designed to record conferences/focus groups. See our Recommended Equipment page. Participants should try and maintain a quiet atmosphere. Introducing yourself when you speak will be of benefit. Participants should be provided with a microphone in order that their speech is clearly heard and easily transcribed. Participants should turn off their mobile phones to avoid picking up unwanted signals by the microphone. We recommend that you record in digital format as these files can be uploaded straight away to Fingertips to transcribe. Digital recorders that a specifically for conferences are the ones to go for. If however you have analogue equipment then this can be transcribed as well. Mini discs recorders produce a high quality recording, but these do have to be recorded first into the PC, so this option will cost a bit more.
Focus Group transcriptions usually require intelligent verbatim transcription but we will discuss your requirements with you.
