In this video tutorial we're going to go over the two typical methods of transcribing video and studio code.

So this really has to do with transcribing not just adding comments or annotating from a coders perspective what's happening in the video. So really what's being said in the video so the first method is to pre-code the instances with the code window which I'm sure you're familiar with like we have already we have a teacher row in a student row then taking those instances and I'll just take a handful of them here like this click on the sorter icon on the timeline take those selected instances into this order you know you can position the windows like this and then I can sort the Rose a movie time.

That way you know crop we can view the instances chronologically now I can listen actually let's check this box let's play this video and what's the problem what are we going to work on that's one of the criteria make it stand what's the problem what are we going to work on that's one of the criteria make it stand what's the problem what are we going to work on that's one of the criteria make it Stan what's the problem what are we going to work on that's one other creditors I coated that then I for transcribed excuse me and I can just pop down to the next instance and listen student says one half in half you are right one two currently we're going to be comparing fractional parts right half and so on so that's pretty straightforward but the the takeaway there was just that you're going to pre-code the instances in the timeline with a code window then dump them to this order.

That's the first typical method of transcribing and the cleaner or easier or more straightforward way that's used by transcribers proportionally many more Studio code users use this method than the next okay.

So the next method is imagined in some cases it's not always possible to pre-code the instances or maybe if you're doing heavy discourse analysis that's driving your work or research or analysis the second method might be more opposite so I'll delete these rows just a doctor the timeline to simulate this situation where we haven't precoded the instances.

This is the second method where we will transcribe and code essentially in this order simultaneously because for whatever reason we can't pre-code the instances. If you can typically it's much cleaner and easier to pre-code the instances first okay so no instances in the timeline. The first thing we want to do in this case this is the one situation where you will use a transcription window as opposed to a sorter window so we're going to go to file new a transcription window that opens the transcription window. Obviously you're going to just position it there and now that we have the transcription window open let's take a look at how to code and transcribe simultaneously in it so you can see my cursors in the time reference cell I'm just going to arbitrarily mark in at this point so this is essentially coding right I'll use a keystroke and many of these key strokes that I'm going to be using the next few minutes I'm not going to spend any time telling you then we're caring about you memorizing them at this point just want you to get a high view of what it looks and feels like to do the coding and transcribing in this in the transcription window.

So I'll use a keystroke and I'll marks in and you can see when I do that the actually advantage of advances the cursor to the speaker so and so let's just let the video play first to see who the speaker is that's one of the st. your any word that's one of them so you can see that the video first of all is just looping in this default five second increment and in this case the speaker is the teacher and again remember in the transcription window the speaker cell equates to a row native essentially in the timeline so that's what this teacher cell will equate to later then I can tab over to the transcription so and just start actually typing what's being said. I forget what you said so let me play that again that's one other can you say it your own word so I just typed the utterance I pause only the video right here just pause it and now I actually want to mark out of this and create to the instance so again I'll use a keystroke and marked out and when I do that I'll go ahead mark out it automatically marks in in the second row of the time stamp or the time reference column and automatically add teacher to that next speaker cell presuming that the next thing that's being said is by the same person it's not it's very easy to just type the name or role of the next person speaking so let's let it play and see who's speaking now.

That's one other person it might be difficult for you to hear the video but I can tell the student in this case and she says we asked to make it stand let me see if she's going to say any more. I'll play the video again man what's the problem hope so posit there again mark out which automatically marks in I know the teachers the next person to speak. I'll play the video one of the criteria make it stand what's the top then I hear her say what's that I didn't hear the next words I'll play the video again how about what are we going to work on that's one other criteria make it stand what's the problem what are we going to work on that's one of the criteria make it stand what's the problem what are we going to work on so I could mark out again and you kind of get the feel here how quickly you can mark in and out identify the speaker and quickly transcribe what they're being what's being said.

Obviously I chose this example because it's nice and clean the back-and-forth dialogue but there are easy simple keystroke ways to advance the loopy markers you know if the utterance is longer than this nice and tidy five second increment and then marked out wherever and in wherever you need to that'll be covered in another tutorial but just from a high-level point of view this is what it would feel like to code and transcribe simultaneously.

Then I could select any portion for all of what's being what's been transcribed and then I can sync or push it back to the timeline and you can see now the instances show up and the rows are created kind of reversed and generated those in the timeline by coding in the transcription window first.

So hopefully this video tutorial gives you a good overview of the two transcription methods one is precoding the instances in a timeline then transcribing them the second is to transcribe encode simultaneously in the transcription window then push those instances back to the timeline.
