Working with transcripts

The power of the system is really around working with the transcripts. There are a number of elements to the transcript which might not be apparent at first glance.


Processing

When your file is uploaded, we begin processing the audio stream to generate your transcript. This process usually takes just a couple of minutes, even for hours of audio of video.

While your transcript is processing, you may still use the playback and annotation features.

You will receive an email with a link, when your transcript is complete. Once the file is uploaded, you can safely navigate away from the page and return once completed.


Updating your title

Many users organize their transcripts by the title, including information such as episode, subjects, date, etc.

You can return to any transcript and update the title anytime. Simply click the title to edit.
