If a client requires timestamping on speaker change, which format would that be?

Time stamping format Utilized while Copying Sound files is:

At which [hour:minute:second]

Normally every transcription that requires timestamps should comprise timestamps at least once in each 30 minutes and at each change .

In the event the customer needs timestamps on speaker alter the timestamp ought to be set following the speaker’s name and until the transcribed language if there’s a shift in speaker.

The structure is:

Speaker: [00:00:00]

Timestamps are mostly useful when someone wants to find a particular part of the transcript.  Example “At [00:10:15] the interviewer asked the person to speak up”.  Timestamps are often used in a panel of discussions, documentaries, in video interviews where it is needed to merge specific scenes with the text.


Clean Verbatim?

The transcription does not include speech errors, false starts, and various filler words (e.g. “mm-hmm”, “uh”, “you know”).


Full Verbatim?

The transcription follows the speech exactly and includes all utterances (“mm-hmm”, “uh”, “you know”, etc.)
