Listen N Write
An easier way to transcribe media files

Listen N Write is a free portable tool which makes it easier to transcribe audio or video files.

Launch the program and a simple media player window appears, along with a basic (but "good enough") text editor.

Open your media file, click Play and Listen N Write begins playback. But not in the usual way. By default the program plays 5 seconds of audio, pauses for a moment, jumps back a couple of seconds and starts playing again (as long as you're not still typing).

This might give you the time you need to transcribe your file, but if not you can hit Pause, or use Back and Forward (buttons or hotkeys) to jump backwards and forwards a few seconds.

Still too fast? You're able to adjust playback speed to something more comfortable.

A Bookmark system enables key sections in the file to be marked for speedy recall later.

We found the default settings worked well, but if you have any problems then all the key delays and features can be tweaked in a click or two via the Options menu.

Version 1.19.0.0 (Changelog):

Added images to menu;
automatic opening of the text document (RTF or TXT) if the document has the same name as the media file;
improved "Smart Play";
adding the reading of CNA and OGM formats (if not recognized need install the appropriate codecs);
updated the graphics of several sub-windows;
Other improvements and changes.

Verdict:

Much simpler than manually switching between your media player and Notepad. A time-saving tool.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.42

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.17.42

• Pin chats to the top of your chat list, so you can quickly find them. Just swipe right on a chat and tap the pin icon.
• You can now send documents of any type. To send a document, open a chat, tap attach — document. 
• When you receive multiple photos, you can now tap and hold on the group of photos to quickly forward or delete all of them.
