The Transcript editor provides a playback panel on the left side of the page. This allows you to view and listen to the media while you are editing the transcript.
The Playback panel provides the same kinds of controls as most of the Echo360 media players do, including play/pause, scrub on the timeline, variable speed playback, show closed captions, and selection between video or audio-only sources if there are more than one to choose from.
When the editor opens, the volume slider is set to half by default. Slide the handle to change volume level (to the right for more; to the left for less). Click ON the volume button to mute/unmute the video.
Click Play to play the video; the play button changes to a Pause button. You can also use the spacebar to play and pause the video IF the page focus is on the player (hitting the space bar while you're editing the text in a transcript cue will, as expected, add a space).
Click ON the timeline directly above the control buttons, or slide the playhead to skip to a different location in the media. The timestamp located to the right of the volume slider tells you where in the video the playback head is located, along with the total time of the video.
If the video has closed captions, click the CC button to show them in the player. The figure above shows the CC button grayed out, as this media does NOT have closed captions yet.
The Source drop-down list lets you select either of the Video feeds of the media (if there is more than one) or you can select to only play the Audio of the recording.
The Speed drop-down list allows you to play the media at variable speeds, from half speed (0.5x) up to 2x speed.
The Pause when typing toggle does exactly that; pauses the player while you are typing in a transcript cue. This allows you to finish typing before returning to the player to resume playback.
