Description
f5 transcription saves valuable time while transcribing your audio/video files manually.

f5 transcription saves valuable time while transcribing your audio/video files manually.
Just press the F5 key (or FN+F5) to start or pause the audio/video file and type what you hear. To be clear: This is no voice recognition software because this can not help you transcribing natural speech, dialects or group interviews. So you type by yourself while listening to your audio or video file. f5 speeds up that process and is really easy to use.

The free version will play the first 10 minutes of every file. With the full version (available at the appstore) you can order the full version without anyrestrictions.

Variable playback speed - without pitch changing
Automatic rewind - re-hear what you just heard
Automatic speaker tokens - and f5 does the typing for you
Customizable text blocks - helps with commonly used phrases
Time stamp - click on the text = listen to the audio/video
Automatic backups - so nothing gets lost
Find and replace - anonymize data in seconds
Foot pedal support - makes your job even faster
Save your transcripts as doc/rtf-Documents
Opens all audio- and videofiles you can open with Quicktime

See how it works:

Variable playback speed - without pitch changing
Almost nobody can type as fast as people speak – so simply slow down the replay speed of your recording, without changing voice pitch. And when you proof-read your transcript, you can increase the replay speed. This makes an easy-going job out of transcription.

Automatic rewind - re-hear what you just heard
Every time you pause the recording, it automatically rewinds for a few seconds. This way, you'll always hear the last two or three words, and you can keep your work flow going.

Customizable text blocks - helps with commonly used phrases
Save the most important phrases, speaker names/aliases, and transcription symbols as text blocks. F5 also comes with some pre-made text blocks for common transcription conventions.

Automatic speaker tokens - and f5 does the typing for you
Don't spend time on typing speaker names or aliases yourself – f5 can do this automatically. In one-on-one conversations, each paragraphs automatically starts with the name of the person speaking. If you have more than two speakers, you can use customizable text blocks.

Time stamp - click on the text = listen to the audio/video
Clicking on a time stamp automatically replays the respective part of your audio or video data. Time stamps are automatically inserted while you transcribe. This helps when transcribing with f4/f5, and when analyzing in MAXQDA, Atlas.TI or f4analyse.

Automatic backups - so nothing gets lost
Mistakes happen to everyone. But f5 regularly backs up your transcript, so you don't lose your valuable work.
Many audio/videofiles
F5 can play all audio/video files that quicktime can play on your system. To increase the supported filetypes just install some of the cost-free tools available e.g. Perian.

Find and replace - and anonymize data in seconds
You can anonymize your transcript with a few clicks. Simply search for speaker names, and replace them with aliases – or you transcribe using abbreviations, which you can later replace with aliases.

Foot pedals supported - makes a quick job even faster
You can control f5 with the following USB foot pedals: Science / Science 2 / Office / VEC Infintiy IN-USB 1 or 2. Available in our online shop at www.audiotranskription.de

Hotkey control
Just Use the F5 key to play and pause, CMD left arrow, CMD right arrow for winding. (be sure to activate the f-keys in the system settings of your Mac)
