Wow. This is more involved than I thought.
I have the audio recording of the hearing in question downloaded on my computer (ordered the CD from the court and copied it). I can easily cut out a portion of audio I want and save it onto a flash drive. Also I have the written transcript. The reason I want to use as evidence a snippet of the audio, is, not so much what was said, but the space of time which passed between a certain statement made by the judge, and the ensuing statement made by my lawyer. That pause is telling, and is what I want to capture. In this instance I don't know if a transcription would help me; or would it...
HI again. I'm investigating more into transcription for audio.
Um...is it something that I can do myself, or, would it be better to have a professional service do it for me? Again, it's only about 15 seconds of audio I need transcribed; in fact it's just that one pause that I want to hone in on. Can I just write out something similar to what you had above /\ then have it notarized inside an affidavit, or, should I prefer to have a service do it for me then include their work product inside my own affidavit? Thanks.
