This support guide will cover

Using highlights for content creation

Trint can highlight text in up to five colors, which can help you keep track of memorable moments in transcript and organize your thoughts as you review. Other uses for highlights include:

  • Distinguishing different speakers by highlighting their text in different colors, allowing you to see how long each person talks for

  • Sort your transcript according to topics that are talked about, helping section out quotes and start constructing a new narrative (read about Trint’s Story feature for more information).

  • Mark important moments in the transcript and tagging colleagues to get their feedback or opinion.

How to highlight text

Select a portion of your transcript text and click the “Highlight” button from the in-line toolbar, then select the color you want to use. You can also use the keyboard shortcut CTRL + H to quickly highlight in yellow.

Highlights will also appear in the waveform at the bottom of your transcript.

Understanding highlight timecodes

When you highlight text, the timecode of that selection will appear in your transcript above the color highlighted.

You can also see the combined duration of each highlighted color by hovering over “Highlights duration” button at the bottom of your transcript.

How to remove highlights

Simply select the highlighted text and click on the “Highlight” icon in the navigation bar. You can also select the text and use the keyboard shortcut CTRL + H to remove the highlight.

If you want to remove all highlights from your transcript, click on the dropdown arrow icon beside the “Highlight” button in the navigation bar and then click the “Clear all highlights” option.
