Transcription of Digital Audio
|Submitter Email:||click here to access email|
I am interested in learning about what is being used for transcription work
of digital audio.
I have just had an opportunity to use a tape recorder with a foot pedal,
and I find working with the foot pedal to be very efficient, but I already
own a Marantz PMD 690, a solid state recorder, and it seems a shame to have
to go from digital to analog.
My laptop is an iBook running Mac OS X.
I have used a software based transcription program, LoopyLoop X,
In general LoopyLoop is good, and very cheap, but given a choice between
operating a foot pedal and punching in keyboard commands in between
actually transcribing, I'd rather use a foot pedal.
The author of LoopyLoop has offered even to build in foot pedal
functionality. Do you have a recommendation on a USB footpedal I could
suggest to him to test with?
I've also downloaded and attempted to use Express Scribe,
http://www.nch.com.au/scribe/ but I haven't yet been able to make it work,
not even to get it to play back one of NCH's own sample files.
