Express Scribe Supports Video

I use Express Scribe Transcription Software which is professional audio player software for PC or Mac designed to assist with the transcription of audio recordings. 

Yesterday I loaded an MP4 video into Express Scribe for transcription and was pleasantly surprised when the video displayed in the bottom pane of Express Scribe. The video plays along with the recording which I can control with my foot pedal

I've never noticed this feature before with other video formats because I normally keep the Express Scribe window minimised. 

This is a really useful feature as I'm finding that watching the people talk in the video as I transcribe helps enormously as I'm transcribing people with accents at the moment. 

This is a handy and very clever feature. I'm very impressed!

Transcriptions this week

I'm starting my week with the transcription of an MP's speech followed by extracts from a conference for an Italian company - in English I hasten to add - and of course any other transcription work that comes in throughout the week. 

What's on your agenda this week?
