    Charlie and burt or anyone in the know,

    Are the transcripts going to be posted in one thread or individual ones for each topic?
    I just want to make sure I catch them all once they are completed.

    I can perhaps co-ordinate with loess who is doing final format and editing?

    When transcript is all edited and done, it would then be posted in its own thread in the "Interview Transcript" sub-forum.

    All the work being done here is in the "Interview Transcript Projects" sub-forum.

    hed be simultaneously amused, joyful, horrified, and saying to some things "nooooooooooo". But it would have to make you happy to see your work bring so much benefit and legitimate conversation

    Just to clarify the verification order:
    Part 1 verifies Part 2
    Part 2 verifies Part 3
    etc...
    But since nobody comes before Part 1, he gets verified by Part 13 (the last part verifies the very first part)
    :lol:

    As far as the checking itself, it could be done by using this syntax around the corrected word: !!! corrected word !!!

    Download the file, open it, modify it, and reupload it.

    Important last minute initiative:

    To make corrections, use this syntax: !!! word corrected !!!, as to enable the final editor to localise your corrections.

    Very useful !

    Is anyone using an iPad to do this? If so, I could use some help in what I need to do to listen from the forum site. Do I need an app.?

    Sounds good. So as soon as all parts are finished in each Transcription Project thread, I will piece it all together, polish up the formatting and try and catch all of the spelling/typos/grammar errors and then upload it. Then perhaps a moderator can put it wherever it should permanently live on the forum.

    Oops, thanks for catching that. I renamed the file and double-checked that the download link still works. Actually, while I am thinking about it, I would like to propose to all volunteers that when you go to save and upload your transcription, if you could please include your username in your document's filename. That will help a bit with my own organizing purposes when I put all of the parts together.

    Good suggestion.
    I've updated the FAQ for that.

    What is everyone's thoughts on including the various "filler" words that inevitably occur in spoken conversation, in regards to transcribing these? The most common being "um" and "uh", but sometimes "yes" or "yeah" is used out of context to begin a sentence when the speaker is in actuality refuting what the other person just said. Personally when I listen to Ray speak, his syntax is actually quite endearing, I think because I relate very closely to it, as I have a similar style in my speech of spending an extra moment to be especially selective with the words I choose, at the expense of a few "uh's" and "um's". However, if I'm reading a transcript, they don't flow as well and I'd rather omit them completely. It makes for a smoother read.

    So I'd vote to leave those words out, but I'd like to know what everyone else thinks...perhaps it is more important to transcribe these interviews as verbatim as possible?

    yea I started putting them in but left them out when I realized it kind of threw off the flow when reading it. But if we wanted to be entirely accurate I guess we could keep them in, I don't mind either way. Looks like Lindsey included them...it seems fine but ill go with whatever majority of you all wanna do

    I leave out the 'ums' and include the 'yeahs' (even when he doesn't mean it and it's more of a 'yeahhhh, right') and 'ands' (I think Ray uses 'and' as a filler word occasionally, too).

    The finished transcripts will go here:

    viewforum.php?f=73

    Oh and I vote to leave out the ummm's and other "filler" words. It flows much better.
