Happy New Year!
This is the New Year’s message from 2011. It needs to be felt again!
You will discover that it is located in a section of a website created by Rick Mercer devoted to the Raj Materials, which you are invited to carefully explore because there are so many user-friendly and use-full attributes.
You will notice that on the line just above the first line of the transcript, there is an icon of a speaker. If you click on the speaker, the audio will begin to play and the corresponding paragraph of the transcript will be highlighted. As the audio continues, the screen scrolls up automatically and the next paragraph is highlighted right through to the end of the transcript.
There is also a control bar on the lower right corner of the screen which has a play/pause button, and on the right side of that button it shows “1.00x”. If you click on it a pop-up window allows you to change the speed of the playback, if you so desire.
Also, in the upper left hand corner there are three horizontal bars, one above the other, sort of like a triple equals sign. If you click on that, a window opens on the left. Scroll down to “Play from Here” and click on it. This causes a “Play Symbol” [a sideways triangle] to appear at the beginning of every paragraph of the transcript. If you click on any one of them, the audio playback will begin from there, allowing you to back up, move ahead, or resume where you left off at a previous sitting. Clicking on the three horizontal bars once again, closes the side window.
One last thing: This is the link to the Home Page of the library, itself.
