Sometimes when watching a ME video, the speaker will say something that leaves me thinking, "Say what?", or "Did I hear that right?", or simply wanting to "chew on the speakers words" for a minute, but in a little larger context than the immediate statement/sentence.

I know I can back up in the video (though imprecisely) as many times as I choose, to listen to something over again, but often (for me) it's more help to jump to the script for the video and mull it over there.  The problem is, Logos does not keep the video and the script in sync, even if they are in a Link Set, so I can't jump directly from the video to the script, or even to the appropriate section of the script ... I have to dig around in the script's TOC in an effort to identify the section that contains the right script.  But from my experience, the degree to which the TOC in the script matches the TOC in the video can vary quite a bit, so sometimes it's a hunt-and-peck effort to find the script.

I would really like to see the TOC for the video always be identical to the TOC for the script, AND to be able to use the Link Set feature to link the video and script.  I'm not expecting (even hoping) that the video and script would be linked at a word or sentence level, but it would be very helpful if they could be linked at the TOC level, so you could at least jump to the beginning of the appropriate TOC entry.

Would anyone else find this helpful?  If so, is there any chance Faithlife, that linking video and script at the TOC level could be added as a feature of the Mobile Ed courses?

That would be a great feature. Lynda.com a video based technology leaning site does this. It actually highlights the words as the speaker says them.
