Transcripting video data

Right now Yasir and me are transcripting the video data, we gained during our user test. Helpful for this mission is the book by Heath, Hindmarsh and Luff (2010) Video in qualitative research – Analysing Social Interaction in Everday Life. They claim that “Transcripts are used to accompany and illuminate rather than replace the data”

In that sense, we first engaged the preliminary review, were we created a small catalogue of the taken video material. Right now we are in the second stage – the substantive review – were we transcript the workshop interviews one by one. It’s taking a lot of time and we will remember for the next user test to keep it short!!

Additionally we are working with the draft and on our own paper/thesis drafts. Loads to do!
