Associate Audio File allows you to associate an audio file (wav or opus) after translation that was not simultaneously recorded with the current transcript but contains timestamps. For example, you are on a job without your notebook. To record the job, you use your digital tape recorder which creates .wav files. You copy the .wav file to your computer, read your steno notes and translate the file. After translation, you use the Associate Audio File to associate the .wav file with the transcript. Once the .wav file is associated with the transcript, you can use the Play Audio EZ Sync at Cursor, Stop Audio and Set Audio Delay features.
Click Tools, Audio, Associate Audio File (Alt + t, a, f). The Choose Audio File dialog box displays.
If you select to associate audio with a file that already has an audio file associated with it, CATalyst displays the message: The file jobname.WAV is already associated with this transcript. Are you sure you want to associate a new audio file with this transcript? Select Yes to associate the new audio or No to cancel and retain the audio already associated with the file.
Select the wav or opus file you want to associate and click Open.
At the Was this audio file recorded using Case CATalyst prompt, do one of the following:
If the audio was simultaneously recorded in CATalyst with the current transcript, before using the Associate Audio feature, you may want to make sure the audio file has the same name as the transcript and is located in the same folder. Then, just click Play Audio and the audio should play without using the Associate Audio file.
If that solution does not work for you, you can use the Associate Audio command and select Yes at the prompt.
Select No if the audio recording is from a source other than CATalyst..
Use EZ Sync at Cursor or EZ Sync to adjust the synchronization if necessary.
