Am I off-topic or a possible solution would be to identify these excerpts as transcriptions from an audio file and than use the corresponding TEI tools to point to the underlying audio file:
- <facsimile> to record the audio file
- <timeline> to define the temporal entry points in the files
- <u> to put in the transcription (or not) and refer to the timeline
I am sure I will have a couple of friends :-}
