  1. 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.

  2. Overlapping Timecode search

    Having overlapping timecodes in the transcript will trigger an error when opening the XML in Final Cut Pro. Then you have to go back and painstakingly look for the error. Have InqScribe highlight the timecode if the next timecode you add isn't at least 1 frame later.

  3. Allow for <--Comments--> in the transcript

    Add the ability to type in info, like the name of the current speaker, or scene numbers in a way that will be ignored when you export the XML. For example, in HTML, <--you simply bracket the comment like this-->.

    Thanks for writing in the suggestion. InqScribe does have a “find” box (select “Edit > Find”), but, you’re right, it does not stay present while interacting with the transcript. We’ll look into changing this for a future update.

  5. add a snippets counter, so you can see how many lines a characters has.

    If you translate a script with different characters, you always want to know have many lines a certain actors has for planing your studio time. so it would be great if you could add a "snippets line counter" under the "Transcript" menu, and also be able to choose the line count of different snippets.

  6. Highlight feature in playback mode.

    The highlight feature would highlight the text that matches the audio in playback mode.

  7. "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)

  9. 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

  10. "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

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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!

  20. 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.
