The Media Player is activated above the Search Results grid when you select to play back an audio interaction, event and/or screen recording.

Before you begin working with the Media Player consider the following:

  • You can play back an interaction from any point in the recording.
  • Playback always begins from the location of the marker in the audio graph.
  • When you play back an interaction from the Search Results grid, the marker moves to the beginning of the interaction.
  • Playback begins automatically when the interaction is loaded.
  • The Media Player includes various playback controls that enable you to better analyze the specific interaction. For additional information, see Playback Controls.

Playback Timeline

The following non-linguistic icons may appear on the playback timeline. For details about each one of these refer to Interaction Events


Playback Controls

The following image and table represent all the available playback controls:

The Quality Management media player contains fewer controls then the Media Player. In addition, the Quality Management media player contains an icon Opennewwindow.png that when clicked opens the media player in a new separate window. The advantage is that you can view the media player in one screen while looking at SpeechMiner data in a second screen. For more information about Quality Management, see Quality Management.
