Filter transcripts

Filtering is a quick and easy way to find and work with a subset of the data in your transcript. By applying a filter to a field (column) you can temporarily hide the rows that you are not interested in.

For example,

To apply a filter:

  1. Select the field (column) you want to filter.
  2. On the Layout tab, in the Sort & Filter group, click Filter, and then click Filter Column.

Shortcut Click the filter icon ui_filter.gif at the top of the field.


The Filter Transcript Rows dialog box opens.

  1. Specify the filter you want to apply to the field— refer to Applying filters or more information.

  2. Click OK. The filter icon ui_filter_red.gif at the top of the field displays red to indicate a filter has been applied.

NOTE You can apply filters to more than one field. For example, to see what a specific speaker said in a particular timespan, you can apply filters on both the Timespan and Speaker custom fields.
