Transcription is the process of converting the recorded interview into a print version. It is a tedious process taking more than double the amount of time the interview itself takes.
The printed word has been around for thousands of years and will be for thousands of years into the future. Without the print version, your story will not be completely timeless.
Step 4-Edit Process
The editing process entails comparing the recorded interview to the transcribed interview. Any content errors in transcription are corrected, place and people names are verified and checked for proper spelling, pictures are inserted in their proper places and the final printed version is produced.
Many hours are invested in this process in order to give you the clearest and most professional account of your family member's story as possible.
