The info panel

When you open a transcript in the Trint Editor, the panel at the top will provide a quick overview of key information to help you work more efficiently. This includes:

  • The total duration of the transcript
  • How many highlights and comments have been added
  • How many paragraphs have been verified by yourself or colleagues
  • How many speakers are named in the transcript
There is also a note section where you can provide more context or background information about the transcript to help inform other users.

Overview of editor tools

Every audio or video you upload and transcribe will open in the Trint Editor, ready to be reviewed and reworked as you see fit. When you select some text, an in-line toolbar will appear to help you quickly review your transcript.

  • Highlight lets you mark the selection of text in up to five colors. Helping to note memorable moments, section out your transcript and easily pull quotes into new Stories.
  • Comment helps you make notes while reviewing your transcript and also tag collaborators for feedback and sign off on content.
  • Strike allows you to redact unwanted text rather than removing it, making sure timecodes stay intact for playback.
  • Add to Dictionary lets you add custom words to a personalized dictionary, helping Trint’s AI learn tricky words or phrases and create more accurate transcriptions over time.
  • Add to Story will add the selected text to a Story file. Use this tool to combine multiple key quotes or memorable moments in your transcript, then craft into a new narrative in Trint's Story Builder.

Along the top of your transcript you will also find a navigation bar will some additional tools for editing and reviewing.

  • Find & Replace allows you to search for one or all instances of a word or phrase. A useful editing tool if a word is repeatedly mis-transcribed. 

  • Add Marker allows you to tag points of interest in your transcript for future reference and instantly jump back to them with a click.
  • Create Caption turns your transcript into instant closed captions that can be reviewed and edited in Trint’s Caption Editor. This will create a separate file and any changes in your transcript will not appear in the caption file, and vice versa.
  • Translate allows you to instantly translate your transcription into more than 50 languages. 

Reviewing your transcript

When first opening a Trint, it’s helpful to tell Trint who the speakers are for this transcript. You can do this by clicking the “Add speaker name" above each paragraph and typing in the person’s name.

If you included Speaker Detection when uploading your audio or video file, every paragraph with the same name will be automatically updated.

You can easily keep track of which paragraphs have been reviewed as you go by ticking the box on the right-hand side. This will mark it green and also updated the “Paragraphs verified” counter at the top of your transcript.

If you would like to share your transcript with colleagues or collaborate as a team, click the yellow button in the top right-hand corner. This will give you a range of sharing options with Editor, Commenter and Viewer permissions depending on the level of access someone needs.

Waveform bar

The waveform bar at the bottom of your transcript gives you a timeline of the audio file, making it easy to match up text and edit if needed.

This section also includes playback controls for the preview window and timecodes to help you keep track of your editing progress.
