  2. 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. 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 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.

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

  8. Preview Subtitled Movies

    Preview Video so you can edit subtitles that may be too long without having to export and view in external player.

  9. Add an optional AutoCorrect

    Add an AutoCorrect feauture, similar to those in mobile devices and word processors. Since some users type shorthand or use codes in their transcript, an ability to turn off this feature is essential.

    It would be great to have the following:
    - Automatically make every sentence start with a capital letter.
    - Include a system that recognizes frequently used words and names.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

    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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

    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.
