Ability to jump forwards or backwards by 10 seconds

I see that this idea has been mentioned before - but it has been shot down.

My reason for this ability is solid.

It is very difficult to manually TRANSCRIBE video into text manually without a facility to jump backwards / forwards by 10 seconds.

Being able to jump back to start of clip is useless in this case.

Being able to use , . for one frame at a time is also tedious and not user friendly.

I hope you will consider it. Most other video editing applications have this.

perhaps try this ...

start timeline play at start of where you want to listen too over and over; let it play across the target section; use enter key and playhead will jump back to where it had started and play will restart from the original location

or ...

use the captions UI; set the caption duration to cover your target, use the caption's start control, use enter to restart/play from original start

Hi Jabaliko, I would highly recommend this software. https://www.nch.com.au/scribe/index.html  I have been using it for years. I have the pro version and I use hot keys instead of the foot pedal. I can bring in the rendered video and transcribe. I either save that as a text file and load to YouTube.  If there are more than two people speaking, a lot of background noise, I then copy the transcription into Camtasia's closed captions and handle the synching there, to create the SRT file, which I upload to YouTube.

I transcribe all of my videos and my clients videos using this software.

I am creating software video demos for a client.  I make them move quickly, but a user asked if we could have a 10-second replay option; she wants to easily go back and review, rather than trying to use the play bar.

Is there a way to do this in Camtasia, or software I can use to edit the resulting .mp4?
