HyperTRANSCRIBE is our new software product for transcribing audio and video files.

HyperTRANSCRIBE lets you open and play most popular audio and video formats, and provides both graphical and keyboard control to play, pause, and loop playback so your hands never have to leave the keyboard.

Using Apple Computer's QuickTime? technology, HyperTRANSCRIBE can play MP3, AIFF, WAV, MPEG, AVI, MOV, and many other media file types.

When you're done transcribing HyperTRANSCRIBE can export your text to RTF or plain text for use in any other program, such as Microsoft Word or ResearchWare's HyperRESEARCH.

Automatic voice recognition software normally reduces the manual transcription needs. But Automatic voice recognition technology is not still matured to produce accurate transcription for non-American accents, or with people speaking quickly or multiple speakers audio files. If you have more than one voice it is almost impossible to get a good transcript. Add to that any background noise or a weak recording and you can pretty much forget it.

So, after automatic transcription, you have to massage this transcription into the final form. Some of the massages are

Correct incorrectly transcribed words/phrases.
Correct punctuation/sentence breaks.
Define paragraph breaks.

For automatic transcription, you can refer

In this scenario, better to go for manual transcription. For accurate and cost-effective manual transcription, please refer:

Great concept, but none of the files I opened worked (mp3, 3gp, sorenson)

We've been able to load and play all of those media type on the 14 Mac systems we tested on over the last several months of testing.

We did get one report yesterday of a system which has what sounds like an issue similar to yours, and we're working with that customer to resolve it.

With a v1.0 product we're bound to find a few odds and ends that none of our testers found, but we're quite earnest about delivering the most solid product we can and I'm confident we'll be able to get to the root of this one in short order.

If you'd like to help us resolve this for your system I'd be happy to help, and would offer you a discount for your trouble -- feel free to write me at richard@researchware.com so we can diagnose this further.

Hypertranscribe saves lots of time. I have a habit of not closing my Mac applications, however and it causes hypertranscribe to freeze. Luckily the text can be copied so it is not lost. Does anyone have a problem of crashing?

Hello Janet - Thank you for your feedback. The demo version won't save nor will it allow copying, so the behavior you describe is expected for the demo version.

Once registered, HyperTRANSCRIBE will prompt you to save whenever a document is closed or you choose File->Quit, as us Mac folks have come to expect from most software.

I believe the differences in behavior between the free demo mode and when it's registered are covered in the documentation included in the package, but if you have suggestions for ways we can clarify that I'm always interested in improving the product.

We haven't had a single report of a crash in either the Mac or Windows editions since we first released version 1.0. For the new version 1.5 we did address some bugs, but they were relatively minor and none were related to data-loss issues like crashes.

If you ever encounter an issue with HyperTRANSCRIBE please let me know. Once I can reproduce an issue I can usually deliver a fix for it within a day or so.
