  • 2.1 Tip: How to Lay Down a Timecode Every 30 Seconds

    Posted on February 20th, 2011 ben No comments

    New in version 2.1 of InqScribe: You can insert timecode series, e.g. “lay down a timecode every 30 seconds,” like this:

    [00:00:00.00]
    [00:00:30.00]
    [00:01:00.00]
    [00:01:30.00]
    [00:02:00.00]
    [00:02:30.00]

    This is typically used by transcriptionists who need to sync text with the video every n seconds. So you start with an empty transcript, insert the timecodes, then begin transcription.

    You can insert time series by:

    1. Start InqScribe
    2. Create a new transcript
    3. Select “Edit” menu->”Insert Time Series…”
    4. Enter the number of seconds you want between each timecode, start and end times, and optionally a line break or text after each timecode.
    5. Click “Insert”

    …and transcribe away!
