I am interviewing HR & L&D Directors for a book I'm writing. Each interview lasts an average of 30 minutes and is about basic business and people topics, no technical jargon. Most of the people have British accents. The pace is normal talking speed with pauses.
We are not in a hurry for the transcripts, a couple of weeks for each of them is fine. We will send each of them through as they are done, so for example we have 3 now, and should have a couple more in a couple of weeks.
We're looking to agree a price for 10 hours of transcription to start with, we will likely need more than that by the end of the project (possibly double!).
We're easy going and have used oDesk professionals before with great success.
