When the Transcript Editor opens, it provides a playback panel on the left, and the text of the transcript, broken out into timed cues on the right. The CURRENTLY applied transcript is shown by default. In most cases, this will be the Original automated transcript generated through the Amazon ASR service. In some cases, it may be an edited version or later uploaded version.
Once you make edits and save your changes, YOUR edited transcript becomes the current transcript applied to the media and will be shown in the transcript panel in the classroom.
To edit the text of the cues, or to change the speaker tags for any of the cues, click Edit Transcript to enter "edit mode".
Once in "edit mode", the right panel changes, and allows you to click into any of the text cues to activate it. When active, you can move your cursor within the cue to make changes, or select a portion of text to type and replace it, as shown below.
After changing the text, when you are finished with the cue, click outside of it, or click into a different cue to edit.
If necessary, use the Undo or Redo buttons to revert/restore your edits.
When finished, click Save As New Version. This creates a new version of the transcript complete with your edits. This will be the version users see in the transcript panel in a classroom.
IMPORTANT: If another user is also editing the transcript at the same time, and has already saved their work, you may be asked to compare differing cues where differences are found. You will have the chance to approve or reject YOUR changes for each differing cue, then save your version as the next version. DON'T PANIC! The other user's changes, even if you reject them, are still there, but will be in the version previous to yours (and will not be in the currently applied/visible version of the transcripts). You or another user can select the previous version from the Version drop-down list if the other user's version needs to be accessed for any reason.
You can also CANCEL all of your edits if necessary.
