Coding audio workflow

Recommended Posts

Hi

In order to further interpret data, I often (ie a few times a day) need to listen to an audio segment that has been coded to a node.

When I open a node, two things are provided:  (1) hyperlinks to the source audio files and (2) for each source, a list of time stamped audio segments are provided as flat text.

Current workflow: remember the start timestamp, click the link to the source audio file, find the right spot in the file (this is aided by the highlighted stripe), listen to the audio.

More efficient workflow: see (2) above and make each start timestamp a link to the precise location in the audio so that remembering the start timestamp and finding the right spot in the audio are no longer necessary.

Thanks for considering.

Below, my suggestions are denoted with list bullets within my workflow narrative. 

When coding audio, I use command+option+shift+{ and command+option+shift+} to select audio segments for coding. I then use control+click to reveal the short-cut menu, from which I choose Code Selection and At Existing Nodes or Cases.

With a large number of nodes, I then have to click Search

  • please make this activated by default so users can begin typing a remembered keyword to filter the long list of nodes

Then I can type in a few characters of a keyword. Sometimes I can't remember if I've started a node for that concept yet, in which case I discover no nodes.

  • please, when no nodes are found in the Search, provide an option for adding a new node right then and there

When I find no nodes, I then have to cancel and backtrack to the control-click to AGAIN reveal the short-cut menu, from which I AGAIN choose Code Selection and At New Node.

Thanks for considering.

I find the suggestion of the more efficient workflow very workable and would love this to become available. Does version 12 have such a facility?

 

Thanks
