AI vs. Human Transcription Services for Qualitative Research

While automated transcriptions have their advantages like instant delivery and cost-effectiveness, it's important to note that professional transcriptionists offer a distinct level of accuracy and attention to detail. They have the ability to carefully listen to recordings multiple times, making necessary adjustments and ensuring accurate representation of complex terminologies. Additionally, they are skilled in identifying multiple-speakers which can be crucial in maintaining clarity and context within the transcript.

While humans excel in many areas, even professional human transcriptionists have an average word error rate of 2% to 3% when transcribing conversational speech. On the other hand, automated speech recognition technology has a word error rate of 20%, making it impractical for qualitative research purposes.

One of the notable shortcomings of AI qualitative research transcription is their misuse of punctuation, difficulty in identifying proper nouns, and inconsistency in sentence structure. However, human qualitative research transcription addresses these issues by carefully reviewing and editing the content before finalizing it. When it comes to the quality and accuracy of transcripts, there is no room for compromise. That's why opting for human qualitative research transcription services is the best choice.
