Real-Time Transcribing Software is designed for multi-channel audio recording and near-real-time verbatim transcribing of court proceedings, conferences, meetings, negotiations, speeches, interviews, lectures in near real-time mode with segmentation overlap.


Real-Time Transcribing Software includes a recording and transcribing server, as well as workstations of transcriptionists, editors (supervisor of transcriptionists’ group), correctors and administrators.

While audio recording is conducted virtual fragments of the audio record are distributed between transcriptionists subsequently. Each transcriptionist works on his assigned audio fragment. Each text fragment is linked with the audio fragment. All text fragments are gathered into a single document.

If the recorded file is to be transcribed, the fragments are distributed to all transcribers simultaneously.

Advantages of Real-Time Transcribing Software

  • Productivity

  • Scalability

The audio recording can be done simultaneously on 64 channels on one recording server. The system supports up to 100 transcriptionists working simultaneously. Supervisor can monitor the activity of the transcriptionists.

  • Confidentiality

The transcriptionists hear only small audio fragments and don’t have access to the whole audio information.
