I’ve found that I can repeat participant quotes and “channel” their voices years after a research session is over.
I found the definition below for the verb Channel:
to allow a spirit to come into your body and speak through you, or to tell people a message that you have received in this way.
But I don't know if the meaning is correct or not.
So, could you please explain it to me?
The fuller text is:

As we play, type, pause, and rewind our recordings, we begin to quite literally think from the perspective of the participant. I’ve found that I can repeat participant quotes and “channel” their voices years after a research session is over. We distribute the transcriptions into thousands of individual utterances, and then we post the utterances all over our war room.
