    "Works as Indicated"

    July 03, 2014   |   By rbdancer

    Version: Express Scribe Free Transcription 5.50

    Pros

    Easy to use, relatively simple and intuitive interface. Nice set of options in Preferences for a free program.

    Cons

    Windows-type icons can be puzzling. Looks a little dated, but then again it runs on older machines.

    Summary

    It really is free, it works just fine without the foot pedal option, and it can make transcribing a lot faster and easier. If this is the type of product you need, it is a good one.

    "False link, but great product"

    March 23, 2013   |   By Hagtar

    Version: Express Scribe Free Transcription 5.50

    Pros

    Slowdown: The program can slow down the audio indefinitely. If you slow it down just to 85-90%, the sound is not too distorded, an it becomes much easier to keep pace.
    "Play and repeat": Couple this with slower speed, and the cumulative effect is nice.
    Customizable hotkeys: You can define your own hotkeys, which will also work if you are working in another program with Express Scribe in the background. This makes rewinding, fast-forward etc. extremely fast and easy. I don't even have to press Cmd Tab to change back and forth between programs.

    Cons

    The link is actually a download link for Express Scribe Pro. I downloaded the free version, which is mostly identical, on http://www.nch.com.au/scribe/index.html.

    Summary

    The program is great, but this download link is false. It needs to be corrected.

    "Not really free, expires after 14 days."

    November 18, 2012   |   By BSWedge42

    Version: Express Scribe Free Transcription 5.50

    Pros

    Not really any since they are so misleading on their website.

    Cons

    NCH Software promotes this as a Free version then after 14 days you have to pay, I would be fine with it if they had told me up front that it is only a 14 day trial. I am not at all happy about doing business with a company that is so misleading on my initial contact with them. Too bad it seems like decent software, hope they get their act together on the customer service side of things, I might give them another try.

    Summary

    Agree with previous reviewer CNet needs to change their review to indicate that this is NOT free.

    "Free version actually expires after 14 days"

    August 26, 2012   |   By nndwrds

    Version: Express Scribe Free Transcription 5.50

    Pros

    If it were a free app, it would be the best option for Mac.

    Cons

    Seems slightly buggy in key assignment (unstable) - but I didn't get a chance to explore this fully

    Summary

    CNet needs to change it's review.
