  1. 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.

  3. 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

  5. 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…

  6. 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.

  7. Implement background/foreground coloring. (e.g., Writeroom app)

    Implement some sort of arbitrary background/foreground coloring, as in the mac application Writeroom (e.g., White/Blue). Easy on eyes!

    Also include custom coloring for the green bar at the top of the InqScribe window.

  8. 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).

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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…

  12. 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.

  13. 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

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. Automatic Play+Pause+Skipback

    It could be useful to have a second kind of playback speed control, that works only with the pause and the rewind functions, instead of really slowing down the speed of playback. I'm thinking of something like this: I click play and, after 10 seconds of playback, InqScribe automatically pauses for 5 seconds, then it starts the playback again; then, after other 10 seconds it pauses again for 5 seconds, and so on, looping this process until I manually click stop or pause. (The values in seconds are given only for example: I imagine that they would be customizable through…

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. Add VLC Player as an optional media player for InqScribe

    Quicktime doesn't play audio for HD MPEGs & often the audio gets out of sync with the video in other formats. VLC has fewer problems with this stuff.

    Thanks for the suggestion. We’re currently working on revamping InqScribe’s media engine, and VLC support is a possibility. For more about InqScribe’s future, head over to our blog: http://blogs.inquirium.net/inqscribe/2014/03/retiring-quicktime/

    Fun fact:
    Currently, VLC Player cannot be used to control media in InqScribe, but did you know you can view your exported subtitles in VLC Player? More in our Knowledge Base here: http://support.inqscribe.com/knowledgebase/articles/422681-how-do-i-import-my-subtitles-into-vlc-player

  20. 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…
