The low quality, distorted and muffled recordings produced onto analogue tapes were always at risk of being chewed up.
Digital recordings offer you crystal clear audio, and our stereo recordings can aid transcription as each person’s speech will be more prominent in one channel than in the other where microphones have been placed appropriately.
AIRPlayer is PC software, designed by ourselves, specifically for use with discs recorded on One Digital AIR & AIRLight recorders. This is our recommended solution for transcribing from standalone systems.
A basic, 'Light' version of the software is present on every disc that is produced on the AIR & AIRLight recorders after an interview, which serves as a convenient playback application. Displaying all related start, stop and pause times, and no need to install the software, it is a very helpful way of initially playing back the recording.
Purchasing the licensed version of the software, which is supplied as a full kit with stereo headset and USB foot pedal, adds a host of additional features for transcribing purposes:-
For the transcription of video interviews recorded in DVD Video format, we can supply ELPedium’s ROVI software. This has been proven compatible with competitor’s video that other transcription software has not been able to control. Contact us to see if it will work with your existing video interviews.
We can also provide transcription solutions for larger requirements, which incorporate assigning particular jobs to specific typists or groups of typists with the relevant clearance.
Using a full workflow system, metadata can be recorded against an interview when it is first initialised, and when a recording arrives in the typists’ pool form the One Digital recorder, associated metadata will still be present.
When the interview is then opened for transcription, a custom template is opened to transcribe into, and as much data as possible is automatically entered in to the template before the transcriber even begins typing. Thus includes start and end times of the interview, interview location, and all names of persons present.
A foot pedal can then be used to playback the recording, and shortcut keys will enter in the current playback time of the recording, interviewer name and interviewee name, meaning that a mouse is rarely required and the typists is left doing only what they do best.
We also recommend WinScribe for your transcription requirements.
