  1. 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?

  3. 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)."

  7. add blinking cursor

    It's hard to tell where you placed the cursor when editing text because there's no blinking cursor/indicator like in Word.

  8. Add Google Cloud Speech-to-Text API connection

    Please add an interface that helps the users to send audio files to their accounts in Google Cloud to have them translated automatically and then corrected with InqScribe.

    Create an instruction page to help your customers register with the Google Cloud Speech-to-Text API service.

    I've been trying to use this service myself but am finding the instruction on Google too complicated. Too oriented to experienced software developers, which I'm not.

  9. Support on a secure (https) web site

  10. allow text expanders

    Allow text expanders. Using hotkeys to start/stop helps speed up my work, but then it is slowed down as I cannot use my usual text expanders to save keystrokes.

  12. Insert note / Highlight words

    It'd be very helpful to highlight a word and/or write a note (foot note, page note, separate file) to find ana add information. You could then search them by word and have all related notes together or jump to the next note. You could export an external file with all notes so you don't have them in your transcription file.

  14. Counting Snippets Variable

    Each time I insert a snippet, be able to include a counter as a variable. So each time I fire a snippet, it writes in the next number integer. Very useful for entertainment cue tracking.

  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. 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.

    Hi Junie,

    Thanks for your suggestion. InqScribe currently offers a “Transparent” background option for subtitle display (see the Save Subtitled QuickTime Movie Menu settings: http://docs.inqscribe.com/2.2/subtitling.html#export). However, we do not currently offer a translucent/opaque background option, so we will place your suggestion under consideration for a future update of InqScribe.

    Thanks again!

  19. Support using the play/pause, previous/next buttons on the Mac keyboard

    Other media applications will use the built-in plause/pause and previous/next buttons that normally operate iTunes, but only when that application is in use. This would provide convenient one-key shortcuts for play/pause and skipback/forward.

  20. 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.
