Transcription, Time Code, and OHMS (Feedback Requested)

When I first designed OHMS back in 2008/2009, there were very few instances of oral history transcripts that contained time code.  So I built OHMS to efficiently place time code into a transcript (at 1-minute intervals).  Now, transcripts commonly contain time code references in one way or another. One of my goals for OHMS has been to add the capablity to import transcripts that already contain time code references, and to automatically map / synchronize to the time code in the uploaded transcript, no matter what the interval.
