Exactness of Transcription

Hi Sara,

As someone who works with the transcripts in our office, I feel your pain!  Let me recommend the Institute for Oral History's recently updated transcribing style guide, found online here:

www.baylor.edu/oralhistory/doc.php/14142.pdf

It addresses many of the practical and philosophical issues you are currently facing.  Feel free to contact me off-line as well with questions or comments.

Happy transcribing!
