Importing transcripts that contain coded segments

25.06.2020, 14:00

Is there a way to:
1)import a transcript that contain pre-coded segments,
2)attach it to a video file, and
3)see where the codes appear in their respective time stamps as the video plays

I'm currently using an older version of the software so I'm not sure if this is doable. If it's possible in the newer versions, please share how.

Version: MAXQDA 12
System: Mac OS X 10.15 (Catalina)

I have no easy way to re-install V12, but if you see an option in your Import screen to import "Structured Text", then the answer to question #1 is yes.

You would need to include hash (#) commands inside the text before importing using the Structured Text function, as follows

The following tags need to be integrated into the imported document:
#TEXT<Text Name> to mark the beginning of a new text
#CODE<Code\Subcode> to mark the beginning of a new coded segment
#ENDCODE to mark the end of the coded segment
#SPEAKER <Speaker's Name> to mark the beginning of a contribution to a focus group
#ENDSPEAKER to mark the end of the contribution
It is not possible to imbed a code into another code.
After a tag MAXQDA expects the end of the paragraph. To integrate a tag in a paragraph's text add a # (this works not for #TEXT).
Use "\" for subcodes and "&&" to assign several codes for a segment.

Example:
#TEXT Name of first document
#CODE Code 1
This sentence will be coded with "Code 1".
#ENDCODE
#CODE Code 2\Subcode
This sentence will be coded until here #ENDCODE# with "Subcode".

#TEXT Name of second document
This text will be placed into a second document.
