    • Abstract:
      Because how we speak can be very different from how we write, transcribing interviews is often more complicated than copying a person’s words down verbatim. Thus, this document includes tips for transcribing oral history interviews and provides guidance for editing and formatting. Also included, is general guidance for writing interview summaries, where the goal of the summaries is to inform the state of understanding, while maintaining the intent and integrity of the interviewee. Overall, this document is designed to provide guidance in transcribing and summarizing oral histories within the context of the Oregon Department of Transportation’s Oral History project.
