Proof-of-concept demo

Notes

  • The demo doesn’t save your transcriptions. It’s just to show that you can easily control the audio using keyboard shortcuts. The actual app (hosted on Github) does save transcriptions and allows you to upload files.
  • It works in Chrome and Safari, but not in Firefox.
  • The default keyboard shortcuts aren’t exactly ideal.
