"A free HTML5 app to take the pain out of transcribing interviews. Useful for journalists, academics and anyone else transcribing audio."

oTranscribe is a free, open-source web app which allows you to easily transcribe your video by using a very simple interface.
You first upload your audio file and on the same web page you can start typing your transcription, while being able to easily start / stop the audio and to rewind or forward to any point you need to without ever needing to leave the keyboard.
The start / stop acts in a smart way, and everytime you restart the audio track after having paused it, the playback automatically starts from a second earlier from where you left. Lovely.
Playback speed control is available both through a slider and via keyboard shortcuts. You can also easily insert time stamps within the transcription by simply pressing Ctrl/Cmd+J, and then when you click one the audio jumps immediately to that specific point.
A set of useful shortcuts completes the toolkit:
F3: Slow down
F4: Speed up
Content is auto-saved automatically to your local browser.
Supported audio file formats: mp3, ogg, webm, wav
Excellent tool for anyone needing to easily transcribe any audio file.
Free to use. Open-source.
