Capital Captions provide Research Transcription Services for market research companies, academics, pharmaceutical companies, global organisations and charities within a range of research specialisms.
Why use Research Transcription
At Capital Captions, we know that carrying out research requires a lot of time and resources. Often this will lead to the accumulation of a lot of audio and/or video recordings with consumers, clients, individuals and groups. Research in an audio or video format can be hard to sift through, and using research transcription services can be used to collate data gathered, as well as making information searchable and accessible for reference.
Like our other transcription sectors, our research transcriptionists are required to have at least two years transcription experience within the transcription industry. Alongside this, we request research transcriptionists to have at least five years’ experience within their specialism, for instance, medicine or the law.
Research audio recordings can typically consist of numerous speakers and/or high levels of background noise. For this reason, we vet our research typists to ensure they are experienced in both distinguishing individual voices, deciphering accents and/or working with lower quality audio.
Upon starting work with us, our typists sign confidentiality agreements for work carried out for clients. Alongside this, we are also registered with the Data Protection Act so you can be sure your files, information and important and/or sensitive research findings are protected and always remain confidential.
We work within a variety of research fields and much of our transcription work focuses around projects involving:
- Focus group transcription
