As a result of using Limecraft for Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR or AI transcription), each word has a timestamp. However, it may happen that the text is displayed as a single text blob with a single time code on top. This article explains what happens in the background and how to structure the result so as to be able to display more timecodes when you export the transcript.
What is the problem?
In some specific cases, the result of ASR or AI transcription may look like a single wall of words. This may be hard to process for spotting or creating sync pulls. Below we explain what causes the inconvenience and how you can work around it.
What causes the inconvenience?
By default, Limecraft displays and exports the timecodes per "paragraph". However, as the transcript is usually automatically created, the ASR service may return a single stream of words in case there are no speaker changes nor pauzes.
How can you solve the problem?
You can create paragraphs yourself by editing the transcript and adding line breaks ("ENTER"). Limecraft will not display the timecodes in the user interface, but the transcript export will have a timecode per individual paragraph.
