Transcribe WAV files
« on: January 30, 2016, 07:22:12 PM »
There's various web based services now for transcribing voice, and probably some that are not web based.

Has it been considered to hook up to one and transcribe image's associated wav files to metdata, e.g. captions?   Sure, it will make a mess of some words, but it seems likely to be easier than finding them all, listening, and typing from scratch?

If a transcribe service is not an option, having the option to PAUSE the audio would be very beneficial while writing down notes taken on the audio file.

I think both ideas are just great.
But let me add another one: Open audio file in player/editor option in the right click menu for images that have an audio file as well.

As for transcribing OSX has a built in dictation function so the transcribe engine is built in too - I'm afraid however it may not be accessible by developers to use it freely - however great it could be.
Working on Mac, OSX, iOS and with some Canons.
Allways shooting RAW.

Both good suggestions. The one I'd use most frequently would be pausing playback!
