  1. allow a shortcut that switches volume balance (one for right, one for left, one for middle)

    This would help us tremendously in transcription of video where there are two audio channels and we want to catch what's happening in both

  3. add a spell checker

    On OS X, we'd use the built-in spell checker. For Windows, we're looking at several options, and are currently leaning towards hunspell, an open-source project with support for several languages. The Open Office project also uses hunspell.

  4. Batch update for file locations

    Different users have the same file stored in different locations. Currently, we have to relocate each file one by one as we re-open transcripts. It would be so much easier to have a batch update function, or a default directory option that can be updated and affect all transcripts.

  5. button to pause for n seconds, then skipback and continue playback

    Simple: I'm transcribing the audio; the speaker then accelerates, so I press a customizable key and InqScribe pauses for 3 seconds (giving me the time to digit what I've lost), then automatically restart playback, only skipping back 1 second just to help me "realignining" with the next words.

  6. insert a cancel button in shortcuts/snippets window

    Especially in the shortcuts window, if I modify a parameter of a shortcut, the change is immediately saved and it can't be undone. Having a Cancel button aside the Done button would be useful.

  7. let me use InqScribe to control playback in the background

    So I can type in Word or some other application, and use the foot pedal to control playback.

  8. error box needs keyboard support and non cryptic alert messages (media not in expected folder error)

    Blind users can't interact with media not found errors via the keyboard and these errors are in cryptic hexadecimal rather than English.

  9. support separate sets of snippets/shortcuts

    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.

    Thanks for writing in the request. You can save images within InqScribe by clicking “File > Save Current Frame as JPEG…” or “File > Save Time Series as JPEGs…” However, you cannot currently save these images in a document with your transcript’s text. We will consider this export option for a future update.

  12. allow a link in the transcript area to multiple media files

    That way the same inqscribe file can point to different media files. This is useful if, for example, you wanted to show lots of examples of the same category which occur in different media files.

  13. Spreadsheet type work area and Excel support

    Instead of plain text area . Let us choose the number of colums visible.
    Would be fare more useful and easily exporable for stuctural data instead of relying on TABs and returns that are not always visible.

  14. Add Flash support

    It would be great to be able to transcribe .FLVs (Flash format), whether from a file or from a URL. Obviously, URL would be the most convenient.

  15. Save subtitle settings

    It would be helpful if you could save and load your subtitled settings instead of having to re-input them every time. Especially great when subtitling hundreds of MOV's with the same width/height!

    Please give us the ability to translate the software. It can only benefit you.

  17. Support for media in external device, like DV player

    One of the things I really miss in Inqscribe is the possibility of transcribing straight from a DV tape. As a documentarist shooting in native langugages, I first have to go do a pre-translation in a text editor, and then bring a captured clip from Final Cut into Inqscribe and this will be translated again. Inqscribe would grow immensely as a program if it had the possibility of controling an external DV device via firewire (like a player, or camera in VTR mode) and using that as media.

  18. allow for .m2t logging

    many of us are working in HDV. Is there a way to log without doing a transfer to mpeg?

    While InqScribe can read and control digital media files saved on a data DVD disc, it does not currently support the DVD format. We will consider DVD support for a future release of InqScribe.

    In the meantime, we recommend a workaround that involves converting your DVD to a standard media file. There are a number of free options for Windows and Mac, such as Handbrake, that will create an InqScribe-friendly MPEG4 video file from your DVD. Once you’ve converted your media to MPEG4, simply locate the file through InqScribe’s “Select Media Source…” dialog.
