There are a number of situations where, because of the rapidity of events, it is easier to record data by speaking it onto an audio cassette rather than recording it by other means, e.g. paper and pencil recording. The problem with spoken data is that considerable effort is then required to transcribe the data onto a computer for subsequent analysis. This paper describes the use of automatic speech recognisers for transcribing such data recorded under both laboratory and field conditions. Different types of recognisers are compared along with associated equipment (microphones and tape recorders). A training prcgramne is suggested for new users and the results of the equipment trials and training programne are presented. Comparisons are also made with other more traditional methods of data collection and transcription.
