    • add a spell checker

      On OS X, we'd use the built-in spell checker. For Windows, we're looking at several options, and are currently leaning towards hunspell, an open-source project with support for several languages. The Open Office project also uses hunspell.

        • let me use InqScribe to control playback in the background

          So I can type in Word or some other application, and use the foot pedal to control playback.

          • Create an iPad version.

            As a lingstic anthropologist I take my iPad into the field to take fieldnotes, use it as a recording device, etc. Then on the way I home, I would like to start working on the transcripts, but I can't because there isn't an inqscribe ap yet. All I really need is a way start and stop with ease while transcribing and add time codes. Then I need to upload the transcript on my desktop inqscribe program in order to make my files subtitled there. Considering that most of the linguistic anthropologists I saw at the American Anthropological Association conference this…

            • Add Flash support

              It would be great to be able to transcribe .FLVs (Flash format), whether from a file or from a URL. Obviously, URL would be the most convenient.

                • Preview Subtitled Movies

                  • Add an optional AutoCorrect

                    Add an AutoCorrect feauture, similar to those in mobile devices and word processors. Since some users type shorthand or use codes in their transcript, an ability to turn off this feature is essential.

                    It would be great to have the following:
                    - Automatically make every sentence start with a capital letter.
                    - Include a system that recognizes frequently used words and names.

                    • Add support for Adobe Premiere Markers

                      The ability to export this for Final Cut is awesome, but with the changes in FCP X, a lot of us have jumped or are jumping ship to Adobe Premiere. It would be nice to include these same capabilities.

                        Thanks for writing in the request! We realize the Adobe Premiere community has grown stronger over the last few years. We’ll keep this under review for a future update of InqScribe.

                      • allow a link in the transcript area to multiple media files

                        That way the same inqscribe file can point to different media files. This is useful if, for example, you wanted to show lots of examples of the same category which occur in different media files.

                        • support separate sets of snippets/shortcuts

                          Many folks want to share snippets or shortcuts with each other. Come up with a way to save a collection of snippets as a file to share with others, and have a way to limit which snippets are active for any given file.

                          Of course, this feature could also allow you to create and store collections of snippets for your own use.

                            Adding an option to display line numbers would make collaboration and identifying errors easier.

                            • Spreadsheet type work area and Excel support

                              Instead of plain text area . Let us choose the number of colums visible.
                              Would be fare more useful and easily exporable for stuctural data instead of relying on TABs and returns that are not always visible.

                              • Add control over size of the timecode display

                                The timecode display right now is way too small and difficult to see. I wish it were bigger and more visible. Either Inquirium can make it so, or give us controls over its appearance, font, color, etc.

                                • Implement background/foreground coloring. (e.g., Writeroom app)

                                  Implement some sort of arbitrary background/foreground coloring, as in the mac application Writeroom (e.g., White/Blue). Easy on eyes!

                                  Also include custom coloring for the green bar at the top of the InqScribe window.

                                    Thanks for writing in the suggestion. We will consider adding custom coloring for a future update of InqScribe!

                                    I’ve edited the description to include custom coloring for the top green bar as per user request.

                                  • Add Export to Word

                                    Many of my clients prefer transcriptions in .doc or .docx format, so it would be helpful to have an export feature for that. In the meantime, I copy and paste, but a straight-up export option would be much more elegant. Also, I imagine it might keep some of the formatting, such as the color-coded time codes, no? That would be helpful, too.

                                          While InqScribe can read and control digital media files saved on a data DVD disc, it does not currently support the DVD format. We will consider DVD support for a future release of InqScribe.

                                          In the meantime, we recommend a workaround that involves converting your DVD to a standard media file. There are a number of free options for Windows and Mac, such as Handbrake, that will create an InqScribe-friendly MPEG4 video file from your DVD. Once you’ve converted your media to MPEG4, simply locate the file through InqScribe’s “Select Media Source…” dialog.

                                          I use this app nearly every day, please make it look as good as the rest of the apps on my Macbook
