This stand-alone short course, offered at NQF level 5, aims to introduce students to the principles and practice of transcription, including transcription technology.
Practical written language skills are reinforced by reflection on decision-making as to what constitutes appropriate vocabulary, punctuation, register and tone in different
communicative contexts as well as by problem-solving involving written and oral text organization and re-organisation. Practical auditory skills are enhanced by an understanding
of different accents, pronunciation and dialects.
