Case study

University of Twente

Transcription (converting audio to text) is a time-consuming, but essential step in qualitative research. The students and researchers of the University of Twente used to do this tedious process manually or hire 3rd parties.

“For some time now there were questions to the BMS Lab about whether technology could accelerate this process. So far we didn’t find one, but with Amberscript we were convinced of the quality and user-friendliness.” – Jan Willem van ‘t Klooster, Managing Director of the BMS Lab

The faculty BMS of University of Twente decided to switch to Amberscript, which saved them a lot of time and effort, that they would put in manual transcription.  Amberscript helps researchers to stay focused, while monotonous work is done for them.

“The automatic transcripts from Amberscript need some editing, but it saves a huge amount of time.” – students say.
