NVivo Transcription

NVivo Transcription

60% of NVivo users are doing their own transcription, taking vital time away from data analysis and core research.

Simply upload your audio file and let NVivo Transcription do the rest. With good quality audio, you can expect up to 90% accuracy and a file transcribed in a timespan of half the length of the audio. You can then make amendments, notes and tag speakers using a specialized editor and directly import transcribed files into NVivo 12.
