So it seems that vim is great for so many things. And I love it. And yet, it is the configuration that sometimes is a limitation for those of us who don't get a tight grasp on how to tinker into it. I know there's a number of programs that are useful for transcribing audio, and it is great to have many options. However it seems they need some amount of steps to get them installed and configured, in order to get them compatible with controlling from inside of vim.
I am looking for the following main features to be controled inside vim, ability mainly to:
- pause/play system wide, so that doing so from the vim editor is possible. Perhaps it would be nice that after each pause there is slight backwards, so that one can hear a little before, which is needed when hearing repeatidly.
How can I control an average audio program from inside vim?
These other features two are additional but highly valuable:
- make audio slower and with proper pitch to stop as little as possible.
- fast forward and back system wide, to move along through broad sections.
- make a clean catch of timing to insert into the transcription.
Can I run a transcription program from vim in a old operative system?
I am running debian 6, stable (actually it is a bunsen labs distro on top of debian), and am having a hard time searching for a program that will work directly. Up to now my best solution is doing this online but the fix I found is not vim like, which is not the best possible solution: online transcribe. It pauses/plays with ctrl+esc, controls time pace slower/quicker with F2/F3 (auto regulates pitch), inserts time stamp with ctrl+j.
