How do I edit a transcript when using the Echo360 Transcript Editor?

The Echo360 Transcript Editor allows editing, in order to make corrections, to the automatically generated text provided by Amazon ASR service.

When the Transcript Editor opens, it provides a playback panel on the left, and the text of the transcript, broken out into timed cues on the right. The CURRENTLY applied transcript is shown by default.

Once you make edits and save your changes, YOUR edited transcript becomes the current transcript applied to the media and will be shown in the transcript panel in the classroom.
