It was interesting to read over the transcription of Ash’s interview with me because it really brought me back to the sitting in the room, taking part in the interview.  There were really not glaring mistakes from my end and I found Ash’s transcription skills very laudable. She accurately spelled small details like my hometown and family information. It was however funny to see how she approached the punctuating inaudible sounds and mumbles, though because now I realize that each person will have their own way of writing out these little noises and the non-verbal gestures that do not translate well onto the page. Her methods were a little different than mine, but nonetheless work within the context of this transcription. In the end, I was rather happy with her transcription.
