HURRAH, Transcription has been massively improved. Will show you whats been transcribed at the same time as playing the audio. A feature that’s been missing form DD4.

  1. Mark

    Just listened to the Rampant Mimblings on this one and laughed my head off at the whole idea of such a badly managed “launch”

    Anyway my main purpose of putting this here was to mention that you say you are on Latched as Oceanspeed – afraid not my friend, you are on Latched as @shiftlocked – whoops!

    Never mind – catch you soon

  2. Hey Serenak,

    It was annoying as they skipped the really interesting points of showing us the new features to get to a one to one session of life coaching. Things like training transcription, the new training for dictation, the new interface, how commands work were all skipped over or show very, very briefly.

    Bugger. I’ll ask the dev if there’s a way he can change my username. Thanks for that. Btw. if you fancy doing some reviewing lemme know 😉

  3. Always happy to do a bit of review work – I already write some for – go check me out on there if you want to see some of my written reviews. Try this Have to admit to not being the most prolific or always super prompt reviewer.. but I get there in the end…
    See you tonight on the M&F
