Transcribing interviews can waste huge sums of time for journalists. Enter oTranscribe, a free HTML5 tool takes some of the pain out of the transcribing process, allowing you to adjust the speed of the video or audio file while you transcribe and insert time codes with a keyboard shortcut. The tool keeps your video or audio file and the transcription of the audio on your device to ensure your data is protected. It is not offered in the App Store or Google Play, but through a Chrome extension; you can transcribe videos using Google Docs to host the text. Journalists should try this software. Time is valuable and oTranscribe gives you the ability to make the most of it.
