  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 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. sound effects

    more options on the sounds effects would really help out for transcription. Especially for hard to hear speakers. Such as being able to manipulate the bass and treble if needed or reduce the background noise.

    planned  ·  Matt Brown responded

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

  8. 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.

  9. 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!

  11. 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

  13. 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).

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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…

  18. Support exported transcripts that contain images of each time-stamped frame

    Creates an exported transcript that inserts a still image of each timestamped frame.

  19. 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.

  20. add live statistics of transcription progress

    I need to be motivated! 50 hours of audio to transcribe leaves me a bit overwhelmed. It would be great to have an optional window that shows things like my current # words transcribed per minute, my total # transcribed words and # minutes completed so far today, and other days this week (and the record to beat!), and a monthly progress chart. This should be really simple to implement, but could really make a difference in my work awareness and motivation.
