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.39 votes
I’ve edited the description to specify “snippet collections” as a feature you can use for yourself, not just for sharing purposes. Thanks for the feedback!
It could be useful to have a second kind of playback speed control, that works only with the pause and the rewind functions, instead of really slowing down the speed of playback. I'm thinking of something like this: I click play and, after 10 seconds of playback, InqScribe automatically pauses for 5 seconds, then it starts the playback again; then, after other 10 seconds it pauses again for 5 seconds, and so on, looping this process until I manually click stop or pause. (The values in seconds are given only for example: I imagine that they would be customizable through two text fields). The automatic pauses give the user the time to finish transcribing what the speaker said during the playback. I think this function should be useful because it removes the need to manually pause and restart the playback each time the user can't stay with the typing at pace with the spoken words, and because often, using the traditional play rate control, the audio quality and words clarity decreases too much. The user should only try to find the two playback and pause time values that, in average, best match the speed of the speaker. One more thing: the one I explained is actually an uncomplete version of the function (just not to create confusion). The complete function I have in mind should have a skipback value too, and should behave this way: I click play, InqScribe plays for 10 seconds, then pauses for 5 seconds, then rewinds 2 seconds and finally starts the playback again, and the whole process repeats. The function could be activated and deactivated through a checkbox. Final note: this function is already built in some programs by Xemi Computers, like Claudio and Audio Notes Recorder, and, if I'm not wrong, it's called "Transcription playback mode".

If you translate a script with different characters, you always want to know have many lines a certain actors has for planing your studio time. so it would be great if you could add a "snippets line counter" under the "Transcript" menu, and also be able to choose the line count of different snippets.11 votes
Thanks for writing in the request! I see how it would be useful for studio time management. We’ll keep this idea under review. If there’s enough support for the feature we will consider adding it in a future update.
I just purchased the program and even though that I love the concept, I'm finding it pretty hard to scrub back and forward in an easy way. I
Easier scrubbing4 votes
As Matt pointed out, scrubbing performance will vary based on a variety of factors. We are currently revamping InqScribe’s media engine, so hopefully you can expect some general performance improvements on the next release.

This would help us tremendously in transcription of video where there are two audio channels and we want to catch what's happening in both4 votes
Having just inadvertently closed Inqscribe thanks to Ctrl+W being right next to Ctrl+Q, I respectfully ask that you consider doing this:
Add a secondary confirmation dialog box to the "don't save" command, which might help prevent lost work.4 votes
Specifically, I'd love it if Control-W shortcut to close the program had some way to back out of it. Because of other triggers I've set and am very accustomed to, it is way too easy to trigger this shortcut and tab to the "Don't Save" button and hit enter, which I did this morning, losing some unsaved work.
I'd just rather never have this particular function on shortcut.
If disabling is not an option, how about allowing the shortcut to remain in the system, but remap the trigger to a combination less likely to be inadvertently hit?1 vote
This idea comes from our user Ross:
"A snippet which would add a time stamp in seconds with a running clock restarted from 0 seconds from the previous marker. The first marker would start the clock running and the second entry would add the elapsed time, say 10.35 (seconds). The third entry would reset the clock to zero then add the elapsed time between the second and third entry, say 120.50 (seconds)."1 vote
Allow users to assign a shortcut to the "Save Current Frame as JPEG" feature.1 vote
From the community: "Please include the time length of audio file as a Snippet Variable"
This would essentially be a variable that inserts the last timecode of the file. For example, the variable would insert "[00:59:56.10]" for a file that that is 59 minutes and 56 seconds long.
Let us know in the comments if there's another timecode format you'd like to see (ex: 59:56).0 votes
