What Are Oral History Interviews?

One of the most effective ways to relive a particular moment, event, or human memories even after many years is through oral history interviews. It is the historical collection of memorable or important families, personalities and interviews or special moments of life, captured on video, audio or in text.

The way things are said, and the exact wordings used by an individual are important in determining the meaning behind an anecdote or a given story. Particularly in emotional situations, oral history interviews represent a lot about the concerned individuals. These interviews provide an in-depth look at the way, the subject was perceived and talked about in a given time period.

It is a powerful tool for recording and saving historical information about individuals, important events, or a certain period in history, for future reference.

Oral History Interview Transcription or Just Audio/Video Capture

Oral History Interviews can be preserved for a lifetime by recording them in audiotapes, videotapes or transcribing them in text format. Video and audio may not be the most effective formats to store this information, especially if:

  • You plan to write a book or prepare a speech using oral history interviews
  • Your oral history interviews are supposed to be a part of larger collection of data
  • You have a number of such interviews that need to be reviewed and processed en masse
