VOICE TRANSCRIPTION SOFTWARE FOR NUMISMATIC ORAL HISTORIES

Last week Dick Johnson gave us several hints on performing
numismatic oral histories.  He wrote: "For me it takes 40 hours
to transcribe an hour of tape. I know. I am slow. (That $3,000
computer hardware and software that immediately puts the text
on your computer screen and records it as each party speaks seems
more desirable all the time.)"

Arthur Shippee writes: "Let's see, forty hours per hour interview.
Ten interviews requiring four hundred hours.  Is your time worth
$8 per hour?  That's $3200.  $3000 is sounding cheaper all the
time."
