I realise that transcribing research interviews is a very involving, consuming process…not easy to do. It is very engaging and takes me to deep emotional places, given that what a participant may say can raise a number of responses given my involvement to the topic. Like i do when I am counselling, i need to be aware of my own process so that i can own it and allow all the space for the participant’s story. My own story is also data but i have to e able to use the one to inform the other. I know there is interesting stuff around that on Kvale’s book about Qualitative Interviewing. I also found at interesting article about the importance of transcription quality. See abstract here
