3. Slow down audio & transcribe fast using our tightly integrated player & editor


When all else fails and you have to transcribe manually, you can still save time using our workflow tools.

You can slow down your audio, auto-loop it, use the built-in text-expander or even use a foot pedal.

This is still way faster than using a traditional Media Player and a Word processor.
