398th Timeless Voices Interviews

Transcription Status

Below is the status of our 398th Timeless Voices transcriptions as of April 2014. Of 97 interviews, 97 are on-line, 33 have been transcribed and several more are under way. Volunteers appreciated. Please contact our 398th Group Historian if you are interested.

The transcription effort requires a high speed connection for a one time download of a QuickTime .mov file to your computer, a Word Processing program, good listening and typing skills. After a draft transcription is prepared, the transcriber can then follow up with the veteran via e-mail, postal mail or telephone for review and clarification of the text. Estimated time to do one interview with follow-up is around 10 hours. For more details on what is involved view our 398th Timeless Voices Interviews - Transcription Tips.
