Transcriva 1.0, from Bartas Technologies, recently came out. For those of you who haven’t heard about it, it’s a new audio transcription program for Mac OS X 10.3 or later. More than a few genealogists do interviews with family members and the like, while making audio recordings of them, and this allows you to easily produce an accurate transcript (including RTF).
Dictaphones are yesterday’s news. Transcriva turns the mechanical chore of transcribing audio recordings into text into a natural, fluid process using the power of Mac OS X. The unique chat-like interface produces a clean, concise transcript whether you’re transcribing a single speaker’s dictation or the Board’s meeting minutes. Transcriva accepts most any audio format supported by Apple QuickTime. Add a clip, press play, and start typing – the only thing easier is making someone else do it for you!
