Listen N Write

A comprehensive and practical utility that you can use to play audio lectures so you can transcribe them in a fast and simple manner
If you often need to transcribe lessons, interviews or conferences recorded with the phone or other devices then you’ve often found yourself annoyed with how long it takes to write the entire text.

Listen N Write is a nice tool that simplifies the entire process, cutting the time you’d normally spend switching between the media player and text editor. It has a simple interface, which makes it easy to handle.

The program has a text editor that comes with several advanced options. For instance, you can choose the font name, size and color, as well as an emphasis (bold, italic, underline and strikethrough). Some alignment options are also available. Furthermore, bullet-point lists can be created as well.

The media player comes with several control buttons, such as play, pause, fast forward and rewind. The volume is also easy to control. The app comes with hotkey support, which means that the playback can’t be controlled without having to use the mouse pointer.

Thus, you can play, pause and go to other areas of the song by pressing some of the F keys. The playback speed may be reduced or increased. The player can be set to always be on top of other frames, which should make it easy to handle, regardless of any other programs you have running on the computer.

The bottom line is that Listen N Write is a great tool that comes in handy if you often handle recordings. Less experienced users shouldn’t find it easy to work with, thanks to its intuitive interface.
