AutoVideoscript is a simple software tool I programmed to transcribe video data. With a few clicks it creates a ready to use transcription of your video sequence and exports it as a MS Word document. All you need is a photogram series. AutoVideoscript transcriptions are based on the MoViQ system which is the standard for video analysis in the documentary method (Dokumentarische Methode) by German sociologist Ralf Bohnsack*. But you can also use the AutoVideoscript transcriptions to perform a content analysis or conversation analysis. Whether in large scale research projects or in student papers using visual methods, AutoVideoscript will be a big time saver. AutoVideoscript is the perfect solution for the transcription problem in video analysis.
