Transcription of Audio with Multiple People

We consider a multi-person interview to be an interview where there are two people or more (interviewees) being interviewed at the same time by an interviewer. The questions asked by the interviewer are paraphrased.

If your audio is an interview with multiple people, but the interviews are consecutive and do not at the same time, see One-on-One interviews. (Example: you interview Bob and then when the Bob interview is finished, you interview Sue on the same file. We would consider this a One-on-One interview as they are not being interviewed at the same time.)

Time coding is available as an option if your materials are submitted on a digital video file or DVD with a visible time code window burn (BITC).

Type-3 pricing applies to interviews conducted with more than two (2) interviewees being interviewed simultaneously. This type of transcription is similar to our Focus Group transcription.

Essentially, if more then 3 people are involved in the interview process, it would bill at our Type-3 rate. For example: Three Interviewers and Two interviewees would bill at Type-3 even though there are only two interviewees.

Type 2 pricing applies to audio that contains two (2) interviewees being interviewed at the same time by an interviewer. The questions asked by the interviewer are paraphrased.

If you interview more than two (2) interviewees simultaneously, it will be classified as Type-3.

If you want the interviewer's questions transcribed verbatim, the audio will be classified as Type-3.
