Do you analyze research interviews using NVivo? If so, NVivo provides dynamic tools that allow you to quickly reference specific segments of your media files from text transcripts.

Now that TranscribeMe and NVivo have teamed-up, ordering these transcripts is easier than ever before! Transcripts can be ordered directly through your NVivo project and will be delivered to the same place upon completion. Please note that our walkthrough for NVivo 10 can be found here.
