Transcribing in Scripta

Below is a step-by-step guide to completing a Transcription task in Scripta. A video demo of this process can be viewed in our tutorials. For information about Timed Transcription tasks in Scripta, please see Timed Transcription.

1. Once you’ve claimed a Transcription task, click the ‘Launch Scripta’ button at the top of your task to open the editor in a new window. Make sure you have pop-ups enabled.

2. Scripta will launch in a new tab. The automatically generated text comes pre-loaded for you to edit. To begin editing the text, click into the first segment. Press Tab to play and pause the video.

3. Edit each segment to ensure it matches the video. Please don’t assume the automatic text is correct! It is a starting point only. You will also need to ensure the transcription conforms to Ai-Media formatting standards.

  • Please remember to save your task frequently by selecting ‘Save’ on the top menu.
  • Segments should be broken up whenever there is a new speaker or every 8-10 lines to ensure the transcript is easy to read. Segment breaks where there is no change in speaker need to be labelled with a chevron.
  • The automatically generated speaker labels will need to be edited to match Ai-Media speaker label standards.
  • Timed Transcription tasks will need to have timecode information added to any new blank segments. For more information on the differences between Transcription and Time Transcription tasks, please see Timed Transcription.

4. Once you’re happy with your transcript, click the Complete button in the top right-hand corner. This will submit your task to Community and close the task in Scripta.
