| It takes a lot of time and patience to transcribe a recording.
When expensive voice recognition systems are not available
manual play-stop-type technique is the only way to go. We
have provided a set of so called off-focus keyboard shortcuts
in our programs to allow playback control while working in
a word processor, but that is not what we are presenting
you with here. Read on to learn about using unique transcription
playback mode in our software.
Transcription playback mode is designed to make transcribing
recorded material easier. With the option enabled playback
first goes for some time, then it pauses automatically
and finally rewinds a little bit to start a new cycle.
The idea is to minimize interaction with the program while
transcribing. You can adjust all parameters for this mode
so with some experimenting you should be able to find the
winning combination - in ideal case you would just start
the playback once and type everything in a single pass.
Three adjustable parameters of the transcription mode
are following. "Transcription segment length" defines
for how long playback should go before making an automatic
pause. You should set it according to how much of speech
on average you can memorize temporarily while typing. We
have chosen 5 seconds as the default value.
"Pause between segments" serves to allow enough
time to complete typing of text memorized during segment
playback. This parameter obviously depends on how fast
you can type. Our default is 12 seconds.
"Auto-rewind before next segment" (1 second
by defualt) is there to create smooth transition to the
next transcription segment. We believe it is easier to
continue with listening this way, but of course you do
not have to use the parameter at all in which case simply
set it to 0.
