  1. If your institution, like ours, pays for Microsoft Teams or Zoom automated transcription -- perhaps to help with accessibility -- you may have wondered if you can use the service to create NVivo Transcripts. We've found the Teams transcripts to be superior to other automated services. And because Teams knows the speaker names, it can automagically separate out speakers, which is really useful. Zoom does the same. But of course NVivo doesn't currently support either's transcript formats. So we've written a utility that converts the VTT files created by Teams and Zoom into a format t
  2. OK - I found I could use a coding matrix to kludge it. But why didn't the obvious thing work?
  3. For my current project I want to export some coded items as an Excel file for further analysis. Specifically I want the content of all the nodes ending '... Identified', but ONLY the text that is also coded as 'Decision-related'. From what I can see of the very little documentation about 'Intersecting Code' filters, the filter setting shown in the screenshot attached should do it. But it doesn't; the exported Excel file contains all the coding of all the '... identified' nodes, whether or not they are coded to 'decision-related' as well. It behaved the same when I tried with a case
  4. Please could we have a forum for Nvivo 12? Best, Charles
  5. I've made a great discovery with normal text files. By zooming them about 25% they're enormously easier to read, and much easier to code as well; I had always been having problems with off-by-one-character errors. But I can't find a way to enlarge the transcription text. Even if I edit the transcription, the font selection options are greyed out. How do I do it? In hope, Charles
  6. I've been doing a lot of transcription... Of 36 imported transcriptions, 6 were 40 seconds out; 2 were more like 2 minutes out. The section played is always _before_ the correct location. The error is consistent - deleting everything and reloading it gives the same result; and it seems to be a function of the audio, but not of the audio length. All the audio files were converted from AAC, and all are MP3 with constant 2 channels at sample rate of 48,000/sec. Any suggestions, anyone? - Charles
  7. I'm using automated transcription. It works well enough, and generates precise timestamps. Mostly NVivo imports them correctly. However with some audio files, when I import the transcript, select a transcription line and click 'play selected rows', NVivo 12 Pro Windows 12.4.0 plays a piece of sound that is almost but not quite exactly a minute before the timestamp. The particular example I'm looking at is a long file (1h30), and the error persists all through the file - same at the end of the audio as the start. I've double checked the transcription against the audio, and the
  8. Err - in other words Nvivo doesn't support a clear way to show what has been coded. That seems bizarre, since coding is the primary use of Nvivo. It means there's no easy way for a researcher to validate their own or someone else's coding. I find it difficult to understand how the product has reached its current level of acceptance with such a significant omission, but maybe there isn't the pressure to produce verifiable work that there would be for in product aimed at business users... Pity! :-( Perhaps it might be possible to create a version of the 'All nodes coding' coding strip
  9. I feel very stupid asking this question, but it's defeated my attempts to google or search for an answer... so... I've coded a long document, and I scroll back to the top. I have highlighting enabled (View - Highlight - Coding for all nodes), so I can see I've coded a particular line. I want to easily see what codes I've assigned to that line. I've tried various settings of View - Coding Stripes, but none make it easy to see what codes I've assigned. (View - Coding Stripes - All Nodes Coding is probably best, but then I have to scroll horizontally through hundreds of nodes to fi

  11. Ah - found it. See http://www.qsrinternational.com/support/faqs/i-access-nvivo-10-project-files-over-a-network-ho Unfortunately that page doesn't come up when one searches for Nvivo data loss. :-( - Charles
  12. I’m very concerned about Nvivo Windows losing data. It’s happened to me several times. My project is on what appears to be a network drive (actually it isn’t: I’m using Parallels on a Mac, and yes, Nvivo works wonderfully on it), and I understand from http://forums.qsrinternational.com/index.php?showtopic=1392 that when I press Ctrl-S, NVivo saves the project file in a temporary directory, and only copies the file over on exit. But sometimes Nvivo doesn’t even appear to save the temporary file when I press Ctrl-S – the modification time on the project file in the temp directory doesn
