In transcribing our interviews, we lose the orality almost immediately thus shoring the narratives of much of their meaning. Stories Matter is a software created by the Centre for Oral History and Digital Storytelling. It offers oral historians an alternative to transcription. Stories matter allows us to clip, index and export audio and video recordings – and so it represents a real alternative to transcription. It is also free and can be downloaded online. New features of the latest version allow for faster upload speeds, better project management options and an improved user interface.
