We provide focus group transcription services from video files as well as normal audio formats. In fact, we highly recommend that you shoot focus groups on video if at all possible, provided that care is taken to also properly record the audio. This will greatly increase the quality of the transcript.
With a video source, the transcriber can see who is speaking and correctly identify them in the transcript. This is not always possible with audio-only sources because voices often sound very similar.
If shooting video, please use separate microphones from the camera and place them on or near the table. In general, on-camera microphones do a poor job of recording audio.
