In this case, the following key combinations need to be configured:
Play / Stop
Start / stop fast forwarding
CTRL + ALT + F12
Start / stop rewinding
CTRL + ALT + F11
Synchronous playback:
If the user selects a word or phrase and presses play, the corresponding audio of the selected text is played.
Playback is stopped at the end of the selected text.
If the user has not made a selection but the cursor is at a certain location in the text and presses play, the audio will be played from the cursor position in the text.
Playback continues until the end of the text is reached.
If the user clicks stop during playback, the audio is stopped and the cursor will be located at the corresponding place in the text.
Saving of report audio
The report audio is saved in the background for performance reasons.
If the saving is still in progress when closing the browser tab, a warning message will be displayed.
It is still possible to close the tab, however the related audio file will be lost.
