6. Reading and Navigating Transcripts

The transcript view is separated into 3 main areas:

1. Heading and Actions

2. Navigation

3. Transcript Display

Heading and Actions

The heading displays the title of the transcript which lists the version of the document, the ticker, region and company name as well as the event date in EST timezone. 

The document version is dependant on our data providers (See: 3. Viewing the Latest Transcripts).

You have the option to print the transcript using by selecting the Print button (See: 8. Printing a Transcript).

You also have the option to annotate the transcript by selecting the Annotation button (See: 7. Annotations).

Navigation

The navigation contains two tabs: Key Drivers and Participants.

Key Drivers: Viewer highlights extractions and groups them into Key Driver categories. This allows you to quickly navigate the document by selecting categories of extractions to view in detail within the transcript.

To navigate by Key Driver select one to expand and view the corresponding extractions; selecting an extraction will move the document to the location of the extraction inside the transcript text and highlight it with a gray background:

Use the drop down menu to sort events by number of Positives, Negatives, Total Events, and Positives-Negatives.

Participants: Viewer groups all the speakers by call topic. Selecting a participant will navigate the document to the relevant section in the transcript.

Transcript Display

The transcript display shows three pieces of data:

1. Call time - the date and time of the earnings call

2. Transcript analysis time - the date and time the transcript analysis was completed by Viewer

3. Transcript publication time - the date and time the transcript was published by our providers

Events discovered by Viewer: meaningful transcript text is highlighted in red (negative) and green (positive) throughout the document

Hovering over the highlighted text allows you to view the corresponding event type.

7. Annotations

There are cases where you may find text that you feel should be highlighted, but is not yet detected by Viewer. You can customize Viewer's model to include similar texts in the future and add the appropriate highlight by adding an annotation.

The annotation you create will only be visible to you and not to other users in the application. To add an annotation:

1. Select the Annotation button at the top left of the transcript view and highlight the required text

2. You can categorize the annotation using the drop-down menu

Likewise, you can change your annotation or an existing highlight by hovering on a highlight and selecting Edit or Unmark. Again, any changes will only be visible to you.

A notification of any annotation or highlight change is sent to Amenity Analytics.
