In Dutch POLYPHONE it proved advantageous to present the transcribers with the prompting text, whenever that was unambiguous. In those items the task of the transcriber was to decide whether the subject had adhered to the prompt without making additional noises. If the speaker deviated from the prompting text, or if there were extra noises, the default transcription had to be edited accordingly. If there were no discrepancies between prompt and speech, the default transcription could be added to the transcription file by hitting <CR>.
