  1. Add support for multi-track audio

    Add the ability to playback and control multi-track audio, each with their own slider to adjust their own volume levels.

    Users would be able to import the video to transcript with the option to also import the individual audio tracks. For a 5.1 sound track, there would be 6 mono tracks (Left, Right, Center, LFE, LS and RS). Being able to filter out audio effects and other unwanted noise would save a lot of time as well as greatly increase the transcript's accuracy.

    Another potential use: For the Record makes courtroom recording systems which produce WAV files containing four channels…

  2. 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 standard TimeCode format support on insert

    In understand the reasoning for using a . before frames when inserting timecode rather than a ; ... but it breaks the ability to import text files created in inqscribe into programs like ProTools.

    Would be great to have that be customizable, so that the timecode format was selectable - allowing you to use all colons (even before frames) or all semi-colons, etc.

  4. 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.

  5. multiple tiers

    Enable multiple transcription tiers relating to the same time code so that a transcription tier can be linked to a translation or annotation tier. This would make the software very attractive to those doing documentary linguistics.

    Thanks for the suggestion. The idea of a tiered or tabbed interface is very much on our radar. It would be a great way to organize notes, transcriptions, and translations. We will definitely consider it for a future version of InqScribe.

  6. Import STL-files

    We are often provided with STL-files which is a largely used standard for subtitling in television. It would be great to have an import for .stl.

  7. Update window behavior to conform to OS X Lion applications

    It appears that the latest version only allows window resize from the bottom right corner. Most other apps now allow resizing from any edge or corner.

  8. 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…

    We hope to get to this soon, along with support for stl import.

  10. scrub audio frame by frame

    Be great to be able to jog back and forth frame by frame hearing the audio, for frame-accurate transcripts.

  11. Stay as fantastic as you are always!

    This is the most exciting work-related software I've come across in this iconic year 2012!

    But I don't know where to write with my trouble-shooting Q.

    I love you guys, you're the best!

  12. 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.

  14. Add a way to automatically go to the beginning of the line to add the time code

    I already have my text transcribed and translated in Word (I need the special characters), and it's a pain to have to manually place the cursor at the beginning of each line to insert the timecode. It would also be great to have a space after the timecode:
    eg: {01:00:25.22} Ed: Speaking of horses...
    Right now it's: {01:00:25.22}Ed:Speaking of horses.

    Thanks for writing in the request! We don’t currently support automatic timecodes every xx seconds because words would get jumbled, coming out like th[00:00:11.11]is. So, your suggestion could provide a neat solution. We will consider it for a future InqScribe update.

    Note that you can lay down timecodes every xx seconds before you start typing. Read how in our Knowledge Base: http://support.inqscribe.com/knowledgebase/articles/22885-can-i-automatically-insert-a-timecode-in-a-series

    We also offer some general timecode insertion tips here: http://support.inqscribe.com/knowledgebase/articles/171934-can-i-automatically-insert-timecodes-at-regular-ti

  16. make Inqscribe available in other languages.

    Wouldn't it make sense to have Inqscribe available in languages other than english? (I mean the menu items and commands).

  17. add quick look functionality to inqscribe files

    I'd like to be able to use the Quick Look feature of osx to see at least the text contents of inqscribe files at a glance in the finder.

  18. Check that each caption line is less than a maximum width

    When making captions, you currently have to guess and see if your caption is actually going to fit in the allocated space, through trial and error. It'd be great to be able to determine a standard width and have InqScribe automatically set the window width so you could see if you're going to break the caption line without having to repeatedly export and scroll through the entire movie.

  19. auto scroll in program (not just export)

    I work in concert lighting and just started using Inqscribe to track how we cue our songs. I'll have music with timecode embedded, play it back, and then insert timecode stamps at the different parts of the song where I need something to happen (verse 1, guitar player xright, etc...). It would be really useful to have inqscribe auto scroll your transcript section on the right so that as a song is playing, I can look over and see my notes for that particular part of a song, and not have to scroll to the particular part of the page…

  20. Add line numbers

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

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