General overview

Although Transcribe! has quite a few features, you 

will figure out the most important functions in a few minutes. 

Whether you use Transcribe! for transcribing/ practicing music, study dance or annotate speech, the basic functions will be the same: 

Slowdown, markings, text blocks and bookmarks.

The markings on the waveform which make it so easy to  get a visual overview and pinpoint exactly what I want to listen to in a song or look at in a video is for me perhaps what I love the most about Transcribe!
