The 22 Oct 2021 chat was the first in a long time that Brenda Wheeler was scheduled for a time convenient for me. Since transcription has been discussed a lot in the NIGS blog and in methodology chats, Brenda clarified questions about that and answered questions about student confusion differentiating transcribing, abstracting and extracting.

I'm fairly confident about my skills but I'm so glad i logged in because Brenda told us about books and web sites that we can use to practice. Since I have already experienced being a bit rusty when I haven't transcribed for a while, her suggestions were a great help. Thank you, Brenda!

@Gaynol ... That's a great solution, especially because I tend to use Google docs, which doesn't have a small caps feature like Word or Pages. Simply lowering the font size for any surname text that is typed in all caps would look less obtrusive, to wit: HASSELBACH (8pt) vs. HASSELBACH (10pt). One could easily replicate those through copy and paste or a find and replace. Personally, I still might prefer the way ordinary capitalization looks, but if a report requires all caps, this is a nicer, less "shouty" way to do it.

And thank you @Cheryl for your detailed response.

Gaynol - I like that. Using the "Small caps" feature under the Font settings will capitalize surnames without being so distracting.
