Design Corner: Transcribing Interviews

One of the most tedious typing activities known to humankind is the transcription of taped interviews. If you want to interview someone for your Web site, consider both taping the interview and using Speech at the same time. You'll need a splitter (available from Radio Shack) to let you run two headsets at the same time, although you could try putting a single microphone between the two of you (or handing it off to one another) and working the interview that way. Of course, you'll have to use only one Speech profile, unless you want to speak the interview into two separate computers and then merge the files later—a workable idea if you have, for example, a desktop and a notebook. After the interview, you'll have lots of editing to do, but if both participants speak clearly, it will be much less work than transcribing a full interview from tape. You'll still need the tape, of course, to check on recognition problems.

Figure 32.4. You can also reconfigure the microphone settings from the Speech Properties dialog box.
