How a journalist super-charged her productivity with Sonocent software
Sophie Chalmers has been an editor and journalist for 21 years.
Although she learned shorthand at the start of her career, she always found it hard to capture what her interviewees were saying while trying to build a rapport. So she switched to recording with a dictaphone.
For Sophie, the beauty of a dictaphone was that it recorded everything. Unfortunately, she would then have to spend hours listening back through the recording and transcribing the useful information. Often she would also forget parts of what she had heard before typing it out, meaning having to rewind and listen to that passage again.
