Format Guide for Transcripts

For the transcripts, you will listen to the tapes and type up both everything you said, and what your subject said.  Use single-spacing, but double-space manually between exchanges, and if you have a very long section, just create paragraphs on your own for readability.

Format the question and answer exchanges as follows, using bold to highlight who the speaker is and a colon to indicate the passage of conversation to follow.


Me:  Hello Mr. Jones.  Thanks so much for meeting me today.  I was just admiring your collection of stuffed coyotes here.  Where did you get your interest in hunting?

Jones:  I first started hunting wolves and coyotes on the plains of Siberia as a youth.  My Uncle Vladimir gave me my first lessons in trapping and then I continued from there.  Uncle Vladimir had a heavy brogue in his accent so I understood virtually nothing of what he said, but I learned a lot by watching him in action.

And so on. You get the idea.
