We've never found a transcription program that will work with interviews.
That's because you need to train the program for each voice, and while the
interviewers are trainable [;-)], each respondent isn't. Hard enuf to get
a resp. to hold still to be interviewed.

We have had good luck with transcription software, for going from voice
recording to interviews. Tracy, what did we use last?
