I also like it for the multiple file types (text, picture, video, etc.) that can be coded.  And cross-platform capability is VERY useful.

Hi Heather and all,

My group has used NVivo – good with transcripts and excellent for coding, but we also use HyperResearch – better for handling image and video coding along with text files and transcripts.  It’s also cross-platform – Mac and PC, which is handy.

Hi all,
We are looking at purchasing qualitative analysis software, either Ethnograph or NVivo. I was wondering if users could share their experiences (good or bad) working with either package. Please reply off-list: [log in to unmask]" target="_blank">[log in to unmask].
