I order to be able to jump from a transcript into a point in the original recording, I needed to record a time of interest in the transcript.

The script in full is:

tell application "QuickTime Player"
set the CurrentTimePoint to the current time of movie 1
end tell
set the clipboard to "{Recording=" & CurrentTimePoint & "}"

When this script is run, it puts the time stamp of the current point in the recording on the clipboard. From there it can be pasted into the transcript. By using the clipboard any program can be used for the transcript (providing it supports the paste command).
