  1. Batch export

    Add the ability to export to a certain format several Inqscribe files at once. Exporting a whole card full of Inqscribe transcripts one by one takes FOREVER.

    Hi Phillip,

    Thanks for writing in the request. We have a previous suggestion for background support that’s already accumulated some votes. You’re welcome to add your vote for the idea below:
    http://support.inqscribe.com/forums/4206-general-feedback-for-inqscribe/suggestions/33720-let-me-use-inqscribe-to-control-playback-in-the-ba

    Regarding your second request, we actually don’t have a mobile app. Are you able to run InqScribe on your mobile device? If so, what device are you using? We haven’t done any testing on mobile and would be interested in learning more if you managed to get InqScribe running.

    Thanks,
    Alex Underwood
    Community Manager, InqScribe

  4. Workabout for discontinous timecode

    Instead of having to go back and adjust all the timecodes at the end to make up discontinuous timecode, it would be great to have a feature that allows you to adjust the running timecode throughout the transcript.

    Eg. Start custom TC is 01:54:53:00. Partway through the TC has to change to 02:43:21:00, because a significant about of time has been removed.

    It would be nice to have the hotkey then take over from the new custom TC and continue with that, rather than reverting back to the 'start custom TC'.

    Maybe also have a feature that supports continuous timecode…

  6. Allow us to disable built-in shortcuts

    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?

  7. Standard Screenplay Format Exporting

    InqScribe is great for direct transcription, however, as Adobe PP editors we could really use a workaround that would allow us to export a standardized screenplay format http://www.storysense.com/format/margins.htm that we could import into our metadata workflow/s.

    I have found that Adobe "Story" is a critical step in the workflow, and while InqScribe's ability to export text (.txt) without timecode is a nearly perfect solution for bulk dialog text, the problem is that we need the speaker field to be separated out in the export, so Story would be able to delineate CHARACTER/speakers from dialog text.

    Note: the format described above…

  9. improve foreign language input

    I use Korean and the cursor is located between lines. Also, dragging (for copy, delete, paste, etc.) does not work properly. Please improve basic input/edit function for foreign languages. Thanks

  10. Add an auto-volume adjust

    I think there should be a feature to automate volume adjustment. So either all songs can play at the same volume or one can program a playlist to play a particular song louder.

  11. Do not resize media window when importing a new video file

    "It would be nice to be able to import and not change my preferred sizing.
    It would save a lot of resizing every time I import a file. I tend to log a lot of footage where I am handling over 100 files at a time and have to resize every one so I can access other things on my desktop at the same time." -Adrienne

  12. discontinuous timecode support

    Add support for discontinuous timecode, when there are multiple items on one tape that show jumps in the visible timecode.

    Thanks for writing in the request! Discontinuous timecodes are a tricky subject, which we try to address in the following article: http://support.inqscribe.com/knowledgebase/articles/18059-does-inqscribe-support-discontinuous-timecodes

    With that said, we will look into solutions for discontinuous timecodes if there’s enough support behind it.

    In the meantime, you can adjust the start time of a transcript or adjust a set of specified time codes. Details in our User Guide here: http://docs.inqscribe.com/2.2/transcriptiontips.html#adjusting

  13. Make transcript change color every x seconds from previous timecode

    Sometimes transcribers are requested to enter timecodes every, say, 20 seconds. InqScribe doesn't automatically insert timecodes in order to avoid situations where the timecodes gets inserted in a bad spot, like t[00:00:20.00]his.

    A workaround is to have the transcript, or a part of the transcript change color to indicate the 20 second mark. Ideally, the would be a color animation (for example, gradually turning from green to yellow to red) so that you could plan your line break.

  14. Add a Google Search Function

  15. Support using the play/pause, previous/next buttons on the Mac keyboard

    Other media applications will use the built-in plause/pause and previous/next buttons that normally operate iTunes, but only when that application is in use. This would provide convenient one-key shortcuts for play/pause and skipback/forward.

  16. Display subtitle character count

    In the transcript window, it would be helpful if there was a way to view the number of characters per subtitle/timecode. It can be difficult to quickly judge the number of characters otherwise.

    Having a character count in-between timecodes would solve this problem.

    Alternatively, the ability to place an adjustable vertical line across the transcript would allow you to quickly eyeball the relative length and consistency of each text chunk.

  17. Add right-to-left paragraph option, like for Hebrew and Arabic languages

    Without this support, transcribing Hebrew and Arabic languages could be messy, especially in case of long sentences or several sentences in one dialog.

  18. Avid Caption Format Export

    I'm wondering how difficult it might be to support the Avid DS caption format. It is a very simple unicode text file with no separators other than spaces and line returns. Sample below.

    <begin subtitles>

    04:00:08:00 04:00:42:22
    Text line 1
    Text line 2

    04:00:42:22 04:00:51:00
    Text line 1
    Text line 2

    <end subtitles>

    This format is supported for captioning within Avid non-linear video editing software including Avid DS and Avid Media Composer.

    cheers,

              tod

  19. Unpin video window from text window

    You should be able to unpin the video window from the text window so you can place in a secondary window. I personally want to use your software for court presentation by clicking on the timecode and immediately playing back for the jury. Right now I have to note the time code then pull up the video in a separate player and cue to the correct time.

    Thanks for the suggestion Andrew. I see how unpinning the video window would be really useful for presentation scenarios. We will consider this for a future update of InqScribe.

    Your second suggestion about embedding subtitles within the playback window is actually covered in the following suggestion: http://support.inqscribe.com/forums/4206-general-feedback-for-inqscribe/suggestions/3057491-preview-subtitled-movies

    Feel free to place your votes there! I’ve edited this part out of the description to keep these ideas separate.

  20. Overlapping Timecode search

    Having overlapping timecodes in the transcript will trigger an error when opening the XML in Final Cut Pro. Then you have to go back and painstakingly look for the error. Have InqScribe highlight the timecode if the next timecode you add isn't at least 1 frame later.
