Nice app, "Backtrack on Pause" (skips a couple of seconds backwards before resuming the file/movie/recording, in order to let you check what you have just transcribed) is brillant.

Though it is brutal on the CPU: come on, 80%+ on a 2GHz Core Duo just for playing a movie-file and letting you type (maybe it's the 'animated' counter?)?!!
That's unacceptable. Otherwise very nice.

80% CPU usage is most definitely unacceptable (and not at all how the software normally runs). Would you please contact support@bartastechnologies.com to report this (include the media file's format as well as your computer's specifications - these are critical details)? It's difficult to fix problems if they're never reported and MacUpdate's comments aren't Bartas's support channel. :-)

Version 2 was a downgrade. I have gone back to the earlier version.

It would be helpful if you could specify the reasons you feel it is a downgrade. Perhaps the problems you're having could be addressed ...? :-)

This program works as promised and is greatly enhanced over version 1 which was already a venerable application. I use it for translation purposes and think that its simplicity is a cutting edge that makes it very intuitive. I highly recommend it to everyone who earns a living on transcription.
