I'm about to start organizing someone's life story to eventually send to a biographer to write a book and would like some suggestions on how to start and organize the process, please.
As they are unable to type and not very techno-savvy, this is my plan:
- Have them audio record the events of their life
- I will create a timeline structure to begin transcribing the details into. This will provide the ability to continue to add more details as they arise
Having some way to auto-generate a table of contents for time periods would be nice. I will also need to add scanned photos, etc. Other than literally transcribing in a large word document, from those in the community who are familiar with the process, are there tools better suited to this process and what suggestions can you kindly provide?
