Add support for styles like bold and italic, along with custom font colors and varying fonts and font sizes.259 votes
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.242 votes
it would be nice to see the audiowaveform in the player window136 votes
Thanks for writing in the request! It’s great to hear users articulating their suggestions in the comments. We will keep this under consideration for a future InqScribe update.
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 past week had iPads, I am most likely not the only person who has this need.

Thanks for the suggestion. Is anyone out there still interested in an iPad app? If so, cast a vote, and tell us about your workflow in the comments!
So I can type in Word or some other application, and use the foot pedal to control playback.78 votes
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.57 votes
Flash support is on our radar. We’re currently in the process of revamping our media support, which you can read about here: http://blogs.inquirium.net/inqscribe/2014/03/retiring-quicktime/
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.44 votes
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.42 votes
Thanks for writing in the request! We realize the Adobe Premiere community has grown stronger over the last few years. We’ll keep this under review for a future update of InqScribe.
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.39 votes
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.39 votes
I’ve edited the description to specify “snippet collections” as a feature you can use for yourself, not just for sharing purposes. Thanks for the feedback!
Adding an option to display line numbers would make collaboration and identifying errors easier.37 votes
Hi, this is still in our feature queue. We hope to add it in a future release.
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.33 votes
Thanks for writing in the request! Naturally, having a spreadsheet work area would allow easy export to Excel, so I’ve added that to the description. We’ll consider spreadsheet support for a future InqScribe update. For a current workaround, head over to our blog: http://blogs.inquirium.net/inqscribe/2014/01/inqscribe-tips-format-transcripts-as-tables/
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.32 votes
Thanks for writing in the suggestion. We will consider adding custom coloring for a future update of InqScribe!
I’ve edited the description to include custom coloring for the top green bar as per user request.
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.31 votes
Thanks for writing in your request. We will consider either enlarging the current timeline text display, or allowing users to control the timeline font size.
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.30 votes
Thanks for writing in the request! We will keep .doc/.docx under review for a future InqScribe update.
more options on the sounds effects would really help out for transcription. Especially for hard to hear speakers. Such as being able to manipulate the bass and treble if needed or reduce the background noise.21 votes
Thanks for writing in your request. We will consider adding more audio controls to the media player for a future InqScribe update.
Thanks for showing your support!. We’ll keep this under review for a future update of InqScribe.
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.
Add support for discontinuous timecode, when there are multiple items on one tape that show jumps in the visible timecode.19 votes
Thanks for writing in the request! Discontinuous timecodes are a tricky subject, which we try to address in the following article: http://support.inqscribe.com/knowledgebase/articles/18059-does-inqscribe-support-discontinuous-timecodes
With that said, we will look into solutions for discontinuous timecodes if there’s enough support behind it.
In the meantime, you can adjust the start time of a transcript or adjust a set of specified time codes. Details in our User Guide here: http://docs.inqscribe.com/2.2/transcriptiontips.html#adjusting
It will be nice if inqscribe could recognise ID3 TC in mp3 files embedded on the metadata. MP3 are smaller and have a fast download /upload time.17 votes
Thanks for writing in the suggestion. If the idea gets enough votes, we’ll consider adding support for MP3 timecode recognition!
