Annotations provide a way of marking out relevant parts of an audio track with graphic flags and textual information. As you are transcribing a recording, annotations allow you to better keep track of parts of the recording that are important.

By clearly marking regions of the recording with flags, you can quickly find sections of audio with just a single click of the mouse. During playback, you can conveniently navigate and review specific portions of the audio marked by the annotations.

Adding Annotations
To add an annotation, select a section of audio by left-click and dragging the mouse in the Track View. That will produce a rectangular highlighted area on the Track View. Next, click on the “Annotation>Add Annotation" menu item.
Editing Annotations
To edit an annotation, click on an annotation flag to select it. The number/index in the annotation flag should turn red indicating that the annotation is selected. Next, click on the “Annotation>Edit Annotation…" menu item. This will open the Annotation Editor:
Annotation Editor
The Annotation Editor lets you change information about the annotation. This includes the name, which is the text that is displayed in the Track View. You can also add a description and modify the start and end time of the annotation region. After you edit, the Track View graphics will be updated.

Annotation Manager
The Annotation Manager displays a list of all annotations associated with an audio recording. In this display, you can select an annotation by left-clicking on an item in the list with your mouse. You also have the option of playing the audio associated with the annotation by clicking on the Play button.

You can also edit the annotation by clicking on the “Edit" toolbar button in the Annotation Manager. In addition, you can remove an annotation by clicking on the “Delete" toolbar button.
Navigating with Annotations
With the Annotation Manager open, you can simply click on an annotation in the list display and it will automatically navigate and select the associated region on the Track View. This makes it very convenient to find previously bookmarked parts of a recording.

You can also use the Navigation buttons in the Track View or use the “Navigation>Previous Annotation" and “Navigation>Next Annotation" menu items to backward or forward between annotations.
