“Discovering NVivo Transcription meant I didn’t have to transcribe numerous interviews myself, it saved me so much time that’s better spent working on my dissertation. It was easy to use and intuitive, and produced a transcript that I was then able to edit as I needed.”

Megan Reinle, PhD Student, Capella University, USA
