  • parlatype

    Free Linux Website

    Parlatype is a minimal audio player for manual speech transcription, written for the GNOME desktop environment. It plays audio sources to transcribe them in your favourite text application.
    It’s intended to be useful for journalists, students, scientists and whoever needs to transcribe audio files.

    Offers adjustable speed, rewind-on-pause, timestamps, use with foot pedals and macros for LibreOffice.


    The waveform makes it easy to navigate in your audio file. You see what comes next and spot silence.

    Adjustable speed
    You can control the speed of playback, playing slowly as you type, playing fast for editing. The pitch is not altered, there is no “chipmunk” effect.

    Rewind on pause
    Whenever you pause playback, it will rewind a few seconds, so that you can easier resume. Of course you can change how much it rewinds or whether it rewinds at all.

    Parlatype produces timestamps which you can insert in your transcription. Parlatype will jump to that position at your will (drag ‘n’ drop or with LibreOffice Helpers).

    LibreOffice Extension
    Parlatype recommends to use LibreOffice. An extension lets you link a media file to a document and jump to timestamps. A set of macros can be assigned to key bindings, e.g. to insert timestamps.

    Plays almost every audio file
    Parlatype is using the GStreamer framework which supports – with plugins – almost any audio file on your disk. Streaming media is not supported, you have to download it first.

    Media keys and foot pedals
    Parlatype can be controlled with the “Play” button from your multimedia keyboard. This way it doesn’t have to have focus to control it. You can type in your text application and still have some (basic) control over Parlatype. Foot pedals can be assigned to the play button.
