GearPlayer is Windows 10 compatible!GearPlayer 4 is the most advanced transcription software you can buy, and you can use it to play the widest variety of digital audio and video file formats. It has all the features you would expect from a transcriber and much more. Playback is easy with a foot pedal, on screen buttons, or hot keys on the keyboard. Any headset that plugs into your PC works great with GearPlayer.

How GearPlayer works

GearPlayer 4 was built with ease-of-use in mind. Its advanced user interface and powerful worklist makes working efficiently easier than ever. Its never been easier to buy transcription software.

Loading digital audio files into GearPlayer is simple. Use the built-in worklist to get a view of all of the jobs ready to be transcribed, or simply drag and drop audio files from any file or folder and drop it on top of GearPlayer. The transcription software will automatically load the file. When you're done transcribing, simply save the text document on your PC and click "Mark Complete", GearPlayer will automatically load the next audio file.

GearPlayer with Email

GearPlayer works with your Email service by having the digital audio files transferred to your PC by Email. Using Drag-n-Drop you can move the digital audio file directly into GearPlayer and you are ready to transcribe. Files from most any digital source can be sent to you using the convenience of Email.

GearPlayer with FTP

Transferring files with FTP is the easiest and most automated way of moving audio files and documents around the internet. GearPlayer's built-in file transfer daemon moves files automatically in the background anytime your GearPlayer is running. When new work arrives, the transcription software notifies you with a small, slide up window and an optional audible sound.

GearPlayer across a network

GearPlayer works across your network to open and play digital audio files on any computer on your LAN or WAN. This includes dictations created on dedicated dictation computers files from a source like GearDictate, even files that have been recorded with most any portable digital recorder and uploaded to a computer on your network. It gives you the power to turn your existing network into a complete dictation/transcription solution.

Not sure if your foot control has failed? GearPlayer's built-in foot control testing utility makes it easy to tell if your foot control is working. Simply select the testing utility from the "Options" menu, and try the foot control. If the foot control is working properly, GearPlayer will show the appropriate pedal light up, indicating the pedal is working as it should.

Time Stamping - Make your mark.

Time Stamping allows you to simply use a "hot key" to copy the audio position in GearPlayer to your word document using Windows clip board. This helps reduce turn-around times by providing quick reference to areas that require additional attention.

Auto Software Updates - Effortlessly run the latest version.

Built-in File Converter - Play the widest variety of file formats.

GearPlayer's built-in file converter enables it to play the widest variety of file formats. If GearPlayer doesn't know how to play a file, it will give you the option of trying to convert the file to something it can play. This powerful feature makes GearPlayer one of the most universal transcription software available.

Audio Notes - Never miss special instructions.

Many dictation voice recorders allow an author to insert audio notes in areas of dictation for special instructions. GearPlayer 4 automatically places the audio notes in the correct area of the audio file so you never miss a note.

Productivity Reports - A necessary tool for efficient transcription.

GearPlayer 4 allows you to easily create helpful productivity reports at the end of your transcription session. It will show you the job name, audio length of each job, time in play, time in job, and the status of the job. There is also a summary at the bottom of the report with all the totals of time, jobs completed and more.

Customizable Hot Keys - Control GearPlayer with only the keyboard.

Hot Keys allow for quick and easy control of the audio file from the keyboard. You can use the preset configuration or completely customize the Hot Key combinations.

Hot keys include Play, Pause, Fast Forward, Rewind, Set Transcribed, Set Open, Speed Up, Speed Down, Set Bookmark, Next Bookmark, Display Demographics, Seek End/Home, Options, Toggle Slim Mode, Volume Up, Volume Down, Mute, Reset Speed, Close GearPlayer, Open File, Skip File and Copy Timestamp.
