Keyboard Shortcuts

We'd highly recommend using the following keyboard shortcuts in Self Transcription to make your workflow as efficient as possible.

Mac users: You can switch your F1-F12 keys to function as standard function keys, so you don't have to press Fn + the function key each time. Here's an article on how to configure this: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204436. If you're a non-Mac user and still have to press Fn + the function key each time, there should be a way to turn this off so you only have to press one key. We'd recommend looking up online for instructions on how to configure this for your particular computer.
