Focus Group Transcription Services
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 focus group transcript 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). If you would like to see a focus group transcription example, i.e with multiple speakers identified, please contact us.
Types of focus group 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.
In todays climate and every changing and advances in technology more people are recording virtually using apps such as Zoom, Skype, Teams etc. The recordings are clearer than using a digital recorder as your voice is recorded directly into the device and background noise is limited. It is of course not as intimate as meeting face to face but it works very well. These apps could be used in-house which will produce clearer, crisp recordings.
Focus Group transcripts usually require intelligent verbatim transcription but we will discuss your requirements with you.
