Minutes from the meeting
Welcome and Introductions from members of the team
Work packages were discussed and Mike gave an overview of the project with the features that were mentioned in the project plan and others that might be included in the design.
It was decided that there would need to be some API changes and storyboarding of possible interfaces for various functions (Yuniji and Seb).
Mary Gobbi suggested the idea of a ‘Decision Tree’ and methodological framework for the types of interviews undertaken by researchers and the type of coding, annotations etc needed for different types of research. It was felt this would help many people and also act as a guide when deciding which features could be added to Synote and which were left to other types of software supporting research and speech transcription such as NVIVO and Transcriber.
Co-Design – taking the diagram below as a guide to the process being undertaken it was decided that short interviews with a series of stakeholders would be noted and some recorded and uploaded to Synote as part of the shared understanding and show and tell aspect of the process. (action EA with team members plus other researchers)
