Message 1: Seeking advice for NNS speech recognition

Subject: Seeking advice for NNS speech recognition

Dear Colleagues: I'm conducting research interviews with fluent ESL
speakers, regarding their awareness of SLA processes. I need to
transcribe the audio tapes for meaning alone, not for linguistic
analysis. I'm seeking advice from anyone regarding the
efficiency/accuracy of existing speech recognition software
programs. I'd appreciate any responses.
