Hello all!.. from a newcomer…
Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS
using : audacity-linux-3.2.2-x64.AppImage
I have been using Audacity years ago on a Free radio, nice times! I’m back !
I am asking for a feature, not sure it’s not here already, but I could not find it (not using the right words, maybe…)
My context, in short : I have interviews in an african language, the transcribed text in african, a translation of this text.
Interviews are in short sequences of two or three sentences, wav files.
I need to export start and end time of each file (clip) to build some sort of subtitle text file (for those who know: srt format like)
This then goes into a linguist tool call Elan with more stuff, not just subtitles: grammar annotations etc.
Here is how I do it for now, you may have much better ideas on how to do it:
I import those files and merge them in sequence (manually), so I have clips: itw01, itw02,itw03…itw50
For each clip I can see at the bottom of the script start and end times.
But I cannot copy paste those time codes.
Here is the hard part; I start to build a file with itw index and times codes, typing them manually:
32-15 00:02:19.729 00:02:32.477
32-16 00:02:32.477 00:02:39.451
32-17 00:02:39.451 00:02:46.269
I know all the information is there in Audacity: itw index is the file/clip name, time codes…
Is there a way, a menu, a utility, which could save me time (and errors!)
Thanks for help and advice!
