Span
If you want to extend the cut before or after each search result, you can modify @cuts.span.beforesec and @cuts.span.aftersec in your search object. If you want to modify the layout of the print transcripts, create a new layout object with mylayout <- methods::new("layout"), modify the settings and pass it as argument l.

Value
