How About Time Codes?

What is time coding?

Time coding is audio or video time stamping in a transcript at regular intervals. When time codes are used, the format usually involves hours, minutes and seconds, for example, 00:02:35. We recommend time codes should be stamped every 30 seconds or as a new speaker begins.

Time codes are placed along the left margin of your transcript in a table format.

Why select time coding?

Time coding provides a marker where you can find the text that matches the audio or video moment you are looking for. As a result, time codes are especially useful for subtitling videos, SEO optimization, research discussions, and legal transcripts. Time coding is also helpful for editing films, documentaries, commercials or TV shows. So clients often choose time coding for interviews or unedited video rushes because they speed up the editing process.

What are two free timestamps?

We offer two free time stamps per page of the transcript so that you can find relevant information more easily. We also mark sounds [inaudible] and [unclear] if we are uncertain so that you can quickly add the correct word if it’s discernible to you.
