  1. Phone Support

    I suggest you have this, as not all of us are savvy enough to follow general written instructions when a media source is not any of those listed. ave phone support. I just signed-up for a free trial, but now that I see only email-based support, I will be choosing a company with phone support..

    • BPM Finder

      It would be great if the software could automatically find the BPM of the song or video clip being played as it saves opening external applications to do this simple task.

        • TTML import

          Although InqScribe has the ability to output a TTML file via the InqScribe Labs site (https://labs.inqscribe.com/exporter/ttml/), there is currently no way to import a TTML file into InqScribe.

          • Allow Real-Time timecode input (e.g. Midi Time Code) in Offline Media mode

            This would make InqScribe more useful for logging off a hardware player, but more importantly means it could be used for real-time logging during Production. An example would be when filming long documentary interviews or Reality TV, a Production Assistant could be logging events to timecode coming from the Camera. Afterwards, this data could be imported into a new Transcription document along with a video file, as a head-start for creating a full edit log or transcript. There's other live timecode loggers out there, but nothing that does transcription after the fact as well. There are several existing apps for…

            • Include a confirmation dialog on "don't save" on close

              Having just inadvertently closed Inqscribe thanks to Ctrl+W being right next to Ctrl+Q, I respectfully ask that you consider doing this:

              Add a secondary confirmation dialog box to the "don't save" command, which might help prevent lost work.

                • Stopwatch Snippet Variable

                  This idea comes from our user Ross:

                  "A snippet which would add a time stamp in seconds with a running clock restarted from 0 seconds from the previous marker. The first marker would start the clock running and the second entry would add the elapsed time, say 10.35 (seconds). The third entry would reset the clock to zero then add the elapsed time between the second and third entry, say 120.50 (seconds)."

                      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

                    • Create a Snippet Variable that inserts the final timecode/file length

                      From the community: "Please include the time length of audio file as a Snippet Variable"

                      This would essentially be a variable that inserts the last timecode of the file. For example, the variable would insert "[00:59:56.10]" for a file that that is 59 minutes and 56 seconds long.

                      Let us know in the comments if there's another timecode format you'd like to see (ex: 59:56).

                      • Scroll text up/down several lines when cursor reaches bottom/top of the text area

                        Look at what happens in OpenOffice Writer. When the cursor reaches the top or the bottom of the text area (moving it with the up and down arrow keys or simply typing lines of text downwards) the block cursor+text is scrolled down or up (respectively) to "reposition" the used part of the text area near the vertical center of the window. This is very useful when typing, for example, because prevents the user typing all the time at the bottom of the window. Part of this behaviour (i.e. when typing at the bottom of the text area, and not when…

                          • 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…

                            • 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?

                              • 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…

                                  • Add support for find and replace regex patterns

                                    Per user request:
                                    We do a lot of edits where the speaker has been misidentified. The usual format is to have the speaker ID at the start of the line followed by a colon. Right now we select the speaker with a double click and then hit a snippet key. It would be nice to be able to assign a speaker to the current line (or even multiple lines) without having to do the select. Allowing find/replace with a regex pattern, which could then to be assignable as a hotkey, would be perfect.

                                      • 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.

                                        • 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.
