Typically their notes read something like this:
Speaker ID Format: >> Speaker Name:
JANE, OTHER, INTERVIEWER
JANE = woman in blue dress leading meeting
OTHER = anyone else who speaks in meeting
Please timecode at change of speaker and then at least around every 15 seconds at start of a sentence.
Please follow AST's normal Transcription Guidelines. This client is referencing "timecodes" NOT sync markers. When our system generates the caption file, it automatically adds the timecodes, which are NOT the same as sync markers. (Clients are not always aware where their notes show up, who sees them, or how the captioning is generated.) Just follow the usual guidelines with regard to markers at least every 10 minutes, for pauses, and around comments.
