EZ Transcribe is particularly made for transcription (write down) of audio/video files. It is a combination of Windows Media Player and Wordpad.
The user can enjoy both Play/Pause and Rewind/Forward features in text editor environment. In this way the user won’t have to switch between a player and a text editor software while typing down the script of that Audio\Video file. The user assigns a step, say 7 seconds, and can take the file easily one step back or forward by pressing Ctrl+Arrow keys. This feature is called Study Mode and helps the user listen repeatedly to a phrase or part of the audio file. This is not only vital for transcribers, but also to learners of music and foreign languages. Only few software in the world have such features, but the features of EZ Transcribe are unique. The first version of EZ Transcribe was made in 2002 and it was not published or released by the developer until now. It was exclusively used for Nopendar Company transcriptions. The 33rd update is now available for download from our website. The downloadable version is Silver Version. In order to upgrade to Gold Version, the user can purchase an Activation Code ffrom Nopendar. All the features are active in Silver Version, but its text editor does not allow typing more than 200 letters. In Gold Version, there is no such limitation.
