DS-UP D:Scribe Standalone V1.0 to V2.0 Upgrade >
The D:Scribe transcription systems consist of two products - D:Scribe Standalone is a package of PC transcription software together with a 3 pedal foot-controller, for simple, fast and effective transcription of pre-recorded audio files. D:Scribe Client & Server software can be used where you are recording using multiple Net-Logs and you want a database system to store, retrieve and transcribe audio.
D:Scribe Standalone is a package of PC transcription software together with a 3 pedal foot-controller, for simple, fast and effective transcription of pre-recorded audio files.
D:Scribe Standalone is the perfect transcription package to use for quick, simple voice-to-text conversion which can be used either with its own text editor, or which can “float” on top of another application, such as MS Word™.
D:Scribe Standalone has all the transcription features of the full Client & Server version, but doesn’t have the management database structure for multiple clients.
The audio controls for D:Scribe Standalone are the same as for the Client & Server version. A foot-pedal is supplied as standard with this package which controls the Play/Pause, Forward & Rewind buttons.
The online spell-checker is available and 12 user defined function keys can be used to enter repetitive material such as names, places and recurring events. The recorded time & date (if transcribing Net-Log audio files) and the current time & date are also available.
Whilst transcribing, the date and time can be edited to show the actual recorded time, to allow transcription events to tie in with the time of recording. A positional Mark can also be added as a reference, either anywhere within the file, or to mark temporarily where you’ve got up to with a transcription in case of interruption.
Finished transcripts can be simply emailed by clicking the on-screen email button, which runs your standard email client to send the text file.
D:Scribe Standalone operates with all MS Windows Media Player™ standard file types : broadcast .wav, .wav, .aif, .aifc, .aiff, .asf, .asx, .wax, .wma, .wmv, .wvx, .wmp, .wmx, .avi, .mpeg, .mpg, .m1v, .mp2, .mp3, .mpa, .mpe, .mpv2, .m3u and .wma. Transcriptions can be made directly from audio CDs (CDA) provided the CD-ROM is fast enough.
MPEG, AVI and WMV video formats are also supported, allowing you to watch and transcribe video footage from an in-built video window.
D:Scribe Standalone has a built-in audio recording screen, capable of recording to compressed MP3 or linear WAV files from any of the recordings sources of your soundcard including Line-In and Microphone.
The recording screen can be used to record audio files using manual start and stop, auto-start recordings using levels (VOX), and also auto-split recordings ranging from 30 seconds to 1 hour each.
Transfer Audio CDs
D:Scribe Standalone has a built-in audio CD ripping capability. This allows pre-recorded audio CDs to be transferred to your PC as compressed MP3 or linear WAV files for playback and transcription.
