Researchers from the most prestigious universities are saving hours by transcribing their interviews with Scrintal.
There is much pressure on researchers and PhD students to publish more papers, get cited more and of course to get more funding. But qualitative research takes time and current practices do not ease the situation.
"For our research project “Solidarity in times of a pandemic+ Latin America, we conducted over 600 interviews in Spanish and Portuguese that had to be transcribed as quickly as possible. Using Scrintal helped us save a ton of time by allowing multiple teams to work on their transcriptions simultaneously, allowing us to get our project off the ground."

Thanks to the technological advancements in speech to text, there are minimal differences between different automated transcription services. What sets one tool apart from the others is its target group focus and how it works to simplify editing draft transcript texts.

Our research project involved quite an extensive number of interviews which needed to be transcribed fast due to grant deadlines - Scrintal helped our team of 8 work simultaneously thanks to its collaboration feature which was a game-changer. Scrintal team was extremely responsive and helpful whenever we had any issues.

I randomly came across with Scrintal and was very pleasantly surprised with the simple and easy to use interface of the platform. As someone interested in qualitative research, I really liked the fact that they offer data processing agreements before taking any action.
