Why do you need this?
Because here you learn how to link your transcript with your audio/video. This will make it easier to replay your audio/video, so you can analyse it in more detail.
- Create a line before ‘@End’
- Highlight a section of the audio in the waveform by using the mouse. Listen to it again by selecting ⌘/ctrl and clicking on the highlighted area.
- Adjust the length of the highlighted section by selecting Shift and clicking to the left or right of the highlighted section. ♣ Clicking outside the original selection expands the selection, clicking inside the selection shortens it. ♣
- Link the highlighted section to the transcript (make a bullet): you either click on the button to the left of the waveform display (·S), or use the shortcut cmd+i / ctrl+i (Insert bullet), to add a bullet point.
- Generate a speaker ID in the left margin, either manually or (better) with the following shortcuts: cmd+1, cmd+2, cmd+3, etc. (ctrl+1 etc. for Windows). ♣ Click on “Tiers” to see which shortcut applies to which speaker. ♣
- Transcribe the audio
♣ Once a bullet has been added to the transcript, you can ‘cmd + click’ on it to play the linked video/audio section. ♣
♣♣ Triple-click a bullet to highlight the corresponding section of the waveform display. This is also what you do when you resume transcription after a break, where you have saved, closed and reopened the file. ♣♣
