Some Tips

  • Start and stop continuous playback with the media player's controls.

  • Play a single line by clicking on that line's number.

  • Use Command+F on a Mac, Control+F on windows, to search for words in the conversation.

  • For video conversations, picture-in-picture can be useful. This puts the video in a separate window, after which you can shrink the originating window in your web browser, allowing more text to be seen on-screen.

  • Safari on a Mac laptop, iPhone or iPad sometimes produces odd results in single line mode.
