I just spent 15 minutes researching a term because I had the most terrible time hearing what the speaker was saying. I used every combination of letters and * (wildcard search) that I thought the word might contain. Then, in the next sentence, he spells it! I am such a bubble brain sometimes!!

That is the main reason I don't research anything until I'm in proofing stage now. That said, you can still end up spending 15 minutes researching something. I know many contracts will say 'don't spend a lot of time researching something, just mark it', but it annoys the heck out of me so I will spend that time doing it.

I am guilty of things like this, though I've been trying to limit how much time I spend on any given word or term. Even if a speaker doesn't spell it out, it might get pronounced more clearly a bit further along in the recording, or you might get some context to narrow it down.

I keep telling myself to wait, too, but I still keep doing it. It seems as if my hands and my head don't coordinate. :o

You are not alone, but I'm not happy doing it the other way around.:o

That can be so frustrating. This is the reason I often just put inaudible tags in as soon as I get an unknown term the first time around because often times it gets clarified later or you figure it out easily later on during the transcript and can fix it upon review.
