Today’s Lesson: the dictation tool on a Google tablet cannot cope with interviews

Today is the day that I start transcribing my ongoing interviews for my doctoral research.

I decided to see whether the dictation tool on my Nexus 7 could cope with transcribing the audio for me. This is what happened (in this snippet I was reading out the preliminaries before formally beginning the interview):
