When I’m checking subtitles with the video preview of Amara translation interface, it shows a “Warning: Idle” dialog every five minutes. It’s quite distracting. I’m not idle. I’m checking the subtitles. That dialog should be suppressed while the video player is working. Also the message of the dialog is strange. What does the “[object HTMLSpanElemet] second” mean?
I'll make a note about this, and it will be addressed in the new editor.
The interval is changed from 5 minutes to 15 minutes. So now you will be distracted only once instead of thrice while watching typical 18 minutes TEDTalks. I just wonder why they chose 15 minutes instead of 20 minutes.
