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. 

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. 

ATTENTION: If you try to install CasualTranscriber for the first time on Catalina (macOS 10.15), you need to go through the steps at the bottom of this Apple support page.

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.

System Requirement: Mac with OS X 10.11 El Capitan or later

The current version is 2.6.4.

This new version has a simple sound wave function, exports video/audio with subtitles without QuickTime 7, and more.

This is outdated. But what is written in the manual is mostly applicable to version 2.5 or later.
