    This extension works as it should but could use some improvements. It would be beneficial to be able to insert timestamps in the document or at least be able to see the time of the audio playing to manually insert a timestamp. It would also be beneficial to have it resume playback and automatically skip back like 10 seconds or whatever amount a person specifies. Otherwise, it's a great extension. I hope someone will make some improvements to it. Thank you.
