Timed Transcription in Scripta

Timed Transcription tasks come equipped with computer-generated text. As a transcriber on Community Portal, you must edit this text to ensure it is accurate, easy-to-read and that it meets Ai-Media standards. Timed Transcription tasks must be completed in Scripta.

The Text Tracker

Timed Transcription tasks use the Text Tracker. The Text Tracker highlights words as they’re spoken in blue to help as you edit the automatically generated text (ASR).

Timecode information and timestamping

Auto-generated sync points are created for every segment in Timed Transcription tasks. On Scripta, these are located between the video player and the text segments. These sync points help to power the Text Tracker.

When you are editing a Timed Transcription task, auto-generated sync points do not need to be adjusted. However, it is important that you review and edit timestamps when you create a new segment or significantly amend an existing one. An example of a signification amendment might include deleting a sentence and typing it in to another segment below. By doing this, it is likely that the auto-generated sync points on both the segment you deleted the text from and also the segment below are longer accurate. It is most important to review and edit timestamps when when a new blank segment in created.
