Practical and appealing interface
After a regular installation process with no notable events, you can launch the program and begin by creating a new project.
The first screen of Transcriber-pro displays the recent documents, while also letting you open an existing file or create a new one, whichever you want. The working window of the utility features three panels, the media file, the text rendering and 'General Info'.
At the same time, the tabbed interface of Transcriber-pro allows you to switch between 'Tools' and 'Player', which changes the ribbon functions that you can use.
The former enables you to insert sections, tags and timestamps, as well as define the speakers, if there are several; the latter lets you control the media playback, skip backward or forward, adjust the volume and the speed.
Create a new transcription project
To start a new project, you need to input a name, then select the media file that you want to transcribe by browsing through your computer and loading the audio or video. Optionally, you can create a multi-part transcription, by inserting one or more 'breakpoints'.
When turning the media file to written text, you can insert various tags to signal when something is 'Unclear', so you can come back on it later, but you can also mark 'Non-verbal Activity' or 'Overlapping Speech'. You can create and edit the 'Speakers' in the right-most panel, entering their name, gender and a description.
Moreover, Transcriber-pro offers numerous hotkeys which allow you to play or pause the rendering of the media file, skip it backwards of forward, insert sections and tag them, jump to the next or previous section, as well as perform autotext replacement.
Handy transcription assistant
In conclusion, Transcriber-pro is an efficient yet user-friendly application whose main purpose is to simplify your transcription tasks, enabling you to get all the work done in less time, thus increasing your general performance.
