  1. Add password protection to .inq files

    We use this program for our research with human subjects. For security sake, add a password protection on files. Right now, I have to move the files into an encryption folder, then extract them when I want to use the file again. Adding encryption or password protection directly on the .inq files would be more efficient.

  3. 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.

  4. Autofill the file name on export/save as dialog

    When exporting, by default name the exported file with the same name as the Inqscribe project (or at least give the option, this saves a lot of time)... instead of always defaulting to "export.txt or .xml"

    Additionally, when saving an InqScribe transcript, you should have the ability to autofill the title with the media filename.

  5. 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…

  6. Geolocate your audio

    How about being able to set a geo-location using Google Earth/Maps for a map reference to your audio clips - working in a similar way to the Timecode feature, but plotting map references. You could maybe have access to a window with google maps/earth in the interface, say below where the player is now. Finding a way to link map coordinates with the text/audio would be great.

  7. Solve these Final Cut Pro Markers export problems

    • You can't drag and drop the generated XMLs into FCP (it gives you an "unrecognized file" error). You have to import them one by one using the "Import XML" dialog, which takes a LOT of time. Also, every imported XML gives you an error log since it can't find the associated media file.

    • It's prone to errors when encountering weird ASCII characters, with no explanation whatsoever that this is the case. I had to work with your support guys to figure this out.

    • It generates an empty sequence with the markers at sequence level. It would be great to also…

  8. Implement keyboard shortcuts to export different types of files. (e.g: shortcut for TXT Export)

    To export, you always have to go to the menu/submenu. It's be great to have a keyboard shortcut for every type of export to save time.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. word-by-word timecoding with script building

    as a doc filmmaker, building a script could be hugely aided by inqscribe if it:
    a) employed speech recognition to match words to timecode after transcription.
    b) allowed editing of the timecode stamped words into new scripts
    c) allowed playing such scripts from the original source material (assembly edit)
    d) provided export of assembly edit to editing software for finessing
    e) highlighted text that'd been used in a script so that after editing one could see what's been used and not used.

    I realize this is a huge task, but for years I've thought that a timecoded word editor would…

    Hi, this is still in our feature queue. We hope to add it in a future release.

  13. Automatic Play+Pause+Skipback

    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…

  14. "match settings" of video

    add option for a new inqsribe doc to "match settings" of video that is inserted for transcribing (vs manually changing everything / kinda like dragging something into a new fcp sequence)

  15. Line by Line language replace

    Add the feature that the much more expensive program Final Sub has. The ability to import a text document in a new language, and have it replace, line by line the previous language in the same timecode positions. Right now I have to copy and paste in the new language line by line. Very time consuming.

  16. Add VLC Player as an optional media player for InqScribe

    Quicktime doesn't play audio for HD MPEGs & often the audio gets out of sync with the video in other formats. VLC has fewer problems with this stuff.

    Thanks for the suggestion. We’re currently working on revamping InqScribe’s media engine, and VLC support is a possibility. For more about InqScribe’s future, head over to our blog: http://blogs.inquirium.net/inqscribe/2014/03/retiring-quicktime/

    Fun fact:
    Currently, VLC Player cannot be used to control media in InqScribe, but did you know you can view your exported subtitles in VLC Player? More in our Knowledge Base here: http://support.inqscribe.com/knowledgebase/articles/422681-how-do-i-import-my-subtitles-into-vlc-player

  18. add additional media playback controls to select discrete audio channels

    Some media files have interleaved or multiple audio channels embedded in a single Audio Track. The specific example I'm thinking of is a Sony XDCAM Proxy file, that has 8 channels of audio embedded, but they get mixed down to stereo for playback. It would be great if we could turn each of those channels on/off in the media playback controls

  19. "omit frames" behavior

    Hi, I remember that old versions behavior was to just hide the frames from the transcript, but you could still enter the frames in the offset field for accuracy. Could there be a way to get that behavior back?
    Thanks

  20. Add an extra export option to make it compatible with MAXQDA.

    It needs rtf files with the timestamp at the end. MAXQDA recommend using F4 from audiotranskritpion.de, but I prefer inqscribe.
