Linking text to audio or video / sonic chat?

Hi all
I am learning to transcribe in CHAT format with reference to some of the 
online published guidance. I have a question regarding linking the 
transcript (in progress) to the video file that I am transcribing (is this 
the same as Sonic chat?). Question: is this an optional rather than 
necessary or recommended? As far as I understand, a main benefit of doing 
this is that it makes for more efficient checking and re-checking of 
transcriptions, as you can go to the immediate point on the video/audio and 
check it against your transcription. 
Thanks (and please excuse any of my ignorance revealed in this message - to CHAT).
