A HyperTRANSCRIBE tip:
Did you know...
... that if you use HyperTRANSCRIBE to create your transcriptions, you can use the document as a source in HyperRESEARCH? The transcription can be coded just like any other text document, and a pane at the top of the window shows the original video or audio file. Click a time code in the transcription to go to that point in the video or audio, and play it while scanning and coding the text.
By using a HyperTRANSCRIBE document, you can get all the benefits of working with a text transcript (precision, easy scanning, searchability) while keeping the benefits of having the original media file (emotional context and subtleties that may not come through in a transcription). Work with all your senses and with multiple modalities, to get new insights and better mastery of the source material.
A HyperRESEARCH tip:
Did you know...
... that in HyperRESEARCH you can use keyboard shortcuts to code audio and video? Just play your source file while listening and/or watching. When you come to the starting point of a segment you want to code, press Control-[ (if you use Windows) or Command-[ (if you use Mac OS X). Continue playing the segment, and when you reach the end of the part you want to code, press Control-] or Command-]. Your chosen segment is now selected, ready to have a code applied!
(This tip can be particularly helpful when you have a long source file and it's difficult to place the play head precisely enough at the spot you want to code. Using the keyboard shortcuts lets you code interactively, without fiddling with the controls on the screen.)
Researchware attended the 25th Annual Meeting of the American Evaluation Association in Anaheim, California from November 3-5. We were delighted by the response we received, with people from around the world stopping by our booth. We had a great mix of long time customers and people completely new to qualitative analysis software stopping by for demonstrations, conversations, or just to drop a card in our raffle for a free HyperBUNDLE.
Several people came by looking specifically for Dr. Sharlene Hesse-Biber, cofounder of Researchware and a leading qualitative researcher in the world today. Sharlene (right) is shown in the photo being updated by Researchware's Lead Developer, Richard Gaskin (center), on new goodies coming soon, while Researchware staffer Ann Dupuis (left) looks on. The photo was taken by Researchware cofounder Paul Dupuis, also in attendance at the AEA. We all very much enjoyed meeting people, demonstrating our simply powerful tools for qualitative research, and talking to fellow vendors.
Our Researchware sticky-note pads were extremely popular with several hundred given away during the conference. Like most of you, we at Researchware keep pretty busy and sometimes sticky notes are the difference between order and chaos for us. We're delighted so many people at the AEA meeting seemed to find them as useful as we do!
We also send out a huge congratulations to Liz Maker of Alameda County on being our prize winner in our drawing for a free HyperBUNDLE, a $1,095.00 retail value (at full commercial pricing).
Researchware also attended the 106th Annual Meeting of the American Sociological Association in Los Vegas, Nevada from August 20 - 23. The first people to show up - at 9:05 on Saturday, when the booth was still being set up - was a customer who'd dragged two people with him to tell them they HAD to get a demo of HyperRESEARCH to really see what he was talking about. So as soon as the computers were up, they were given a quick demo.
Researchware cofounder, Dr. Sharlene Hesse-Biber, is shown in the photo answering questions to two ASA attendees (on either side of Sharlene). A momentary lull in booth traffic allowed our other booth staffer, Ann Dupuis, time to step out and snap the picture! Many more came by because they'd seen our insert in the conference registration package, or because they'd seen our Tweets using the #ASA2011 hashtag.
We'd also like to thank our long time customers who came by the booth. Researchware celebrated it's 20th anniversary on September 24th, 2011 and we had many customers who have enjoyed the simplicity and power of our tools for many (and in some cases all) of those 20 years stop by our both to say "Happy Anniversary".
We'd also like to send out a huge congratulations to Stephen E. Roberts of the University of Florida on being our prize winner in our drawing for a free HyperBUNDLE, a $1,095.00 retail value. We really enjoy seeing people at conferences and discussion qualitative research so be on a look out for us at qualitative conferences in 2012!

At Researchware, we love what we do. Our simply powerful tools for qualitative research are helping to make the world a better place in many different areas of research. We routinely search the Internet for tidbits about what people are up to with HyperRESEARCH or HyperTRANSCRIBE. In one of our searches we came across an inspiring story, one we really wanted to share.
Catalina Talero, while conducting research in Bogotá, Colombia, was kidnapped and robbed. You can read her own tale of her abduction and her amazing clear-headedness at dealing with and ultimately extricating herself from the situation at her blog.
This tale surfaced in our search because Catalina mentions HyperRESEARCH in her blog, as one of the items she was saving her money for. Well, she eventually got HyperRESEARCH and continued her research and has moved on to many amazing successes.
We got in touch with her to ask her a few questions about her work before and after her experience. Read all about it on our web site at Catalina's Tale.
Researchware Staff will be hosting a series of scheduled webinars and on-line chat sessions on the Researchware.com website. Webinars are scheduled on a variety of training levels on our software. Researchware live chats make key Researchware staff available to answer any questions you may have about our software, to discuss the latest trends in qualitative data analysis, or just to say "Hi!"
