- +Since we use and format the transcripts from the etherpads you don'​t ​have to take care of linebreaksPlease insert as few linebreaks ​as possiblePlease only insert linebreaks for speaker changes or sounds and when the etherpad forces you to.
-Another problem actually is our current auto timing process, which currently creates forced ​linebreaks ​if lines are too longTherefore we recommend ​to keep lines at max 42 chars.+
  
 +In short: Fewer linebreaks is better.
