Download HyperTRANSCRIBE™

If you want to try out HyperTRANSCRIBE: You may download the demo for free. Once installed, the demo has all of its features fully enabled except:

  • The Save, Export, Copy, and Paste commands are disabled.
  • Drag and drop from HyperTRANSCRIBE to other programs is disabled.

These features are enabled once you enter a license key, which you can order using the Buy Now link under the Products menu.

If you have just purchased HyperTRANSCRIBE and want to download it: First download the demo and install it. When you start up the demo, it asks whether you want to enter a license key or continue in demo mode. The license key was emailed to you when you purchased HyperTRANSCRIBE. Once you enter your license key, the program removes all the demo limitations and transforms itself into the full edition.

If you are upgrading HyperTRANSCRIBE from a previous version: Download the demo and install it. When the program asks for a license key, enter the original license key you received when you first made your purchase. This will fully enable your copy of HyperTRANSCRIBE.

Users of any previous version can upgrade to HyperTRANSCRIBE 1.6.1 at no charge.

Do You Know...

... that you can change the length of the segment that HyperTRANSCRIBE plays? Choose the Preferences menu item, and change the number of "Seconds to Play When Advancing". From now on, HyperTRANSCRIBE will play a segment of the new length when you press Shift-Space or when you press Tab to advance to the next segment.

Adjusting the segment length can help make your transcribing process more efficient. For example, if you often need to replay the segment before advancing to the next, try making the segment length shorter so that you can transcribe an entire segment in one pass. On the other hand, if you find it very easy to finish transcribing each segment without replaying it, making the segment length longer may improve your rate.
