Makes transcribing interviews less painful
We start the day thankful. We're running this Summer Project about researching, writing and publishing books and in looking up a link for you in it, we found that one of our favorite software tools has been seriously updated. We've no clue how we missed it, but we have transcribed so many countless, countless interviews using Transcriptions 0.8.0.1 that we've worn it out. Now we've found Transcriptions 1.1. So thank you for that, and we'll keep a better eye out in future.
Improved performance, better editing, 99 percent accuracy

The new version 3 for Mac offers a claimed 99 percent accuracy rate, 15 percent better performance, improved editing control and most importantly support for digital recorder transcription -- including recordings from iOS devices.
