"Stomps all over your PC"
Adequate as a transcriber.
Stomps all over your PC.
I bought Express Scribe because it works with a footswitch, making it easier to transcribe recorded interviews. It does the job adequately.
Unfortunately, NCH also stomps all over a PC, establishing links and context menus for various file extensions that have nothing to do with Express Scribe.
For example, Express Scribe is a sound transcriber. It added stuff that wanted to go and get more NCH software to handle compressed (zip and rar) files and many other media files.
There does not seem to be any way to prevent this.
If you just want the software, try to find an alternative that does not impose itself all over your PC.
When asked about this, NCH seems to wilfully miss the point. Their advice seems to be to uninstall the software completely. Instead, I had to manually remove the junk from the Windows registry.
