Coding Media Data with Multiple Transcripts

This page picks up where Selecting Media Data with Multiple Transcripts left off, having made and tested an appropriate multiple-transcript selection.

Once you have a good multiple-transcript selection in place, simply right-click, or Cmd-click on macOS, the Keyword you wan to use as a Code. From the pop-up menu, select Create Multi-transcript Quick Clip. (If you instead choose the Create Quick Clip menu option, you will get a Quick Clip with only a single transcript.)

Analytic Memos

It’s now a good idea to create more analytic memos. No action in Transana should be considered finished until you have written about it in an analytic memo.

Right-click (Ctrl-click on macOS) the Clip you just created and choose Add Clip Note from the popup menu. Name the new Note for your clip and enter your initials as NoteTaker. Press OK.

Press Ctrl-T on Windows or Cmd-T on macOS to insert a date-time stamp in the note. You might want to write about why you made the selection you did, why you included the coding you did, how you see this clip fitting in with your overall analysis, and any questions you might have, among other issues.
