CasualTranscriber

CasualTranscriber is a utility program to assist transcription of audio/video text.  It can handle most of the file types QuickTime can handle.

This program hasn't been fully tested.  If you use this and find any bugs/weirdness, please let me know.

NOTE: A new version (2.5) is available, but the English manual is not ready. Basic functions are covered in the version 2.1 manual. 




This version has most the features of the current version (and some new features), but much more stable.  No documentation is ready, but basic functions are similar to the current version.  Any feedback is welcome.  Please send email to the account listed on the Contact Me! page (see the left column) or post a comment on the blog.

System Requirement: 64-bit Mac (Core 2 Duo or later) with Mac OS X 10.7 Lion or later and you need to have QuickTime Player 7 installed to add and view subtitles.

Attention: This version has some problems on OS X 10.9 Mavericks, so the database feature is disabled for 10.9. If you use 10.9 and want to use the database feature, try 2.1 beta below.




This new version (2.1) is mostly rewritten and I put back some features that did not work on OS X 10.9 Mavericks and is also with a few additional features. But with Mavericks or later, the database function is disabled due to the internal problem. If you use 10.9 or later, try version 2.5 below.

System Requirement: 64-bit Mac (Core 2 Duo or later) with Mac OS X 10.7 Lion or later (10.9 recommended) and you need to have QuickTime Player 7 installed to add and view subtitles.

The manual is also updated with some addition for new features.





A new version is available, though the manual is available only in Japanese (check the Japanese site). Most of the basic functionality is in common with Version 2.1, so you can start with the manual for Version 2.1. 

NOTE: Due to the space limitation of Google Sites, the file is now on Google Drive. Once you click the download link, you will be transferred to Google Drive where you need to click Download to save the disk image.
