Transcription Window Part 2

This is an extension of my last post.  Thanks, Will, for your comment about creating multiple columns in the transcription window.  In this screencast I give a few tips about creation and organization of those new columns so you can begin your coding process without a code window.  This is a nice option for researchers who are used to coding videos from transcriptions rather than with video software. 

Though you can use the transcription window to completely avoid the code window, I still highly recommend using it as a starting point rather than your primary method of coding.  If you only use transcriptions to generate codes, you are losing the video dimension that makes Studiocode so powerful.  I see the transcription window as an optional starting point and a wonderful ending point to enhance presentations.  I’ll discuss this further in future posts.

    Great post, Tara. For those that add multiple Speaker columns, just remember that there can only be one Speaker (i.e. row name) assigned to a given instance. So if/when you sync back to the timeline, the instance in the timeline will end up residing in the row that corresponds with the left-most Speaker column in the Transcription Window. For example: If you were to move the Code 2 (Speaker) column to the left of the Code 1 (Speaker) column, then sync, all the instances in the timeline would be reassigned to the Code 2 row.
