We are Transcript Divas.

“Working with a team of handpicked Divas – we have developed a solid system that provides exceptional Transcription Services. Fast, low priced, dependable (and a little bit fun). Welcome to Diva-dom”. – Andrew Dodson (Divas Founder)

Who we are.

Hello my name is Andrew Dodson and I am the Director & founder of Transcript Divas. After 6 years working as a researcher in Public, Private and Charity Sector Research I founded Transcript Divas. Apart from Divas, I also work in evaluation and performance development and project management. Highlights so far include, working in post disaster recovery for the Red Cross in Christchurch, All Hands in Haiti, and in Cambodia for Oxfam.

As a Qualitative Researcher I have worked with many different Transcription Services. Over these six years I literally got transcribed hundreds of hours of interviews and discussions that were carried out over the various research projects I managed. I always found that Transcript Services could only offer at best a 24 hour turnaround, and no service ever offered any sort of guarantee that a transcript would actually turn up on time, or that it would be accurate. I felt in each project that I was just handing over my recordings and left to just hope for the best. After a few let downs – at critical moments – I went out and found my own typists. I sifted out the gold and formed a team that I could rely on. A team for me. After a while I started lending this team out to work mates and associates – then their workmates and their associates, the processes become more slick, the team grew, and then suddenly we had a small Kingdom, a Divadom!
