EF Talk Scriber combines a text editor and an audio file player, designed to work like a dictation transcribing machine. It offers the features of a full text editor and an audio media player, plus specific hot links support between text and sound. Your hands don't need to leave the keyboard -- you simply type the spoken words into your computer as the audio file plays.
The text editor supports Unicode characters (except the Windows 9x edition). The media player supports the usual audio file formats, including WAV, MP3, Ogg/Vorbis, FLAC. EF Talk Scriber is easy to use, with a modern interface. The keyboard shortcuts are fully customizable for all the usual functions.
