The Fastest Way to Transcribe Video with Keyboard Snippets


In this video, you’ll learn how to use shortcuts to quickly perform common commands and snippets to insert commonly used text. Keyboard shortcuts mean you never have to take your hands off the keyboard when transcribing. For instance, simply hit the tab key to start, and the tab key again to stop. Use the Command + semicolon keys on the Mac or Control + semicolon on Windows to insert time codes. And you can customize your own shortcuts via the shortcut editor. InqScribe provides you with a bunch of common commands and so you can create your own shortcuts to match how you work. My favorite is the Toggle Pause and Play with a 3 second skip back. You can also use your favorite USB foot pedal to trigger any shortcut you want, including a host of convenient tools for controlling your video. Finally, you can create your own snippets to insert frequently used text with a single keystroke. You can even combine snippets with commands such as this one, which inserts the current time along with the speaker’s name. To use your snippet, simply find it in the floating Snippets window, double-click and it will automatically be inserted in your transcript.
