transcription : Java Glossary

The CurrCon Java Applet displays prices on this web page converted with today’s exchange rates into your local international currency, e.g. Euros, US dollars, Canadian dollars, British Pounds, Indian Rupees… CurrCon requires an up-to-date browser and Java version 1.8, preferably 1.8.0_112. If you can’t see the prices in your local currency, Troubleshoot. Use Firefox for best results.


Listening to an audio or video recording and typing out the words spoken. To do this efficiently you need transcription software and a foot pedal. Alternatively, you might be able to use speech to text software, then manually tidy it up. For some reason, medical transcription is considered a separate problem with specialised tools.

You use the foot pedals to play, pause, reverse, fast forward, fast reverse. Ideally when you go fast forward, the software adjusts to avoid a frequency change in the voice.

The software may include a small text editor, but it need no do. You could use any text editor or word processor.

The profusion of sound and video formats reminds me of something Woody Allen might have said: In the kamasutra, I noticed that positions 149 and 211 are the same, except the woman has her fingers crossed.. It is wicked to create a new data format unless it is significantly better than what already exists.
