Recording Tip 2

Assist in clarification - if materials such as letters/ photographs etc. are being shown to participants, remember that they may need to be identified on the transcript. So it would be a good idea to say what the ‘IT’ is that’s being shown. You may remember what ‘IT’ is at the time but will you later on when it comes to analysing the transcript and how does the transcriber know or the reader of the transcript? And if participants just nod or shake their heads, please either ask them to say yes or no, or confirm verbally what they’ve done.
