- Here you’ll find the uploaded desktop video on the left and the generated markdown transcript on the right. The transcript includes hotlinks that jump the video to the current timestamp.
- On the bottom, you’ll see a timeline of the candidate’s coding session. You can see the applications used, the files changed, number of words spoken, and how many lines of code that were added or removed.
- Now, notice how the timeline is highlighted yellow? The markdown transcript will display all the logs captured for the current highlighted area. Try dragging the gray sliders on either end to edit the highlighted clip.
Highlighting clips helps reviewers to jump to the important parts of the recorded video. The source is still viewable, making it possible to view the details.
You may use clips to highlight important areas of the test. When you’ve found an important segment, click “Create Highlight” at the top right. This will save the clip as a highlight right below the video.
You can even link directly to highlights.
Candidates have the option to edit their test before sending it along. (Paircast uses text to speech, but it doesn’t always get everything right. You also might see window names and code samples you don’t want.)
To edit the transcript, click “Edit” on the top right. This will expose the markdown editor, and changes can be made right there. Paircast supports standard markdown, so users can embed images, tables, lists, etc. Click “save” when finished.
