  • Transkripshun

    Open source transcription software for Linux, Windows, and Mac. Comparable to ExpressScribe. Press F2 to play/pause. Press F4 to rewind 3 seconds.

    • The software allows you to press macro keys to pause, rewind, and play audio -- just like Express Scribe. There is no pedal integration though but everything else works out of the box. The author also clearly states that they're not adding a UI unless asked to do so. ki4jgtDec 2018 Disagree   Agree
    • When I use Express Scribe, I use it with a foot pedal, so I can concentrate on typing what's being said in the dictation I'm transcribing. Transkripshun not only doesn't appear to support pedals, but has little to none in the way of a UI. gdwaynewarnerNov 2017 Disagree   Agree
