InventoryBase provides seamless audio playback tools for transcribing your dictated audio recordings into a completed, typed report using InventoryBase's online report editor.

If you wish to make use of InventoryBase to transcribe your own reports in-house, this feature is for you.

Using the fixed Audio Player shown at the bottom of the report editor window, you can skip, step and navigate through your rooms and audio recordings while typing up your report.

When the end of the audio for the current room has been reached, you'll automatically be scrolled down to the next room/section, so you can effortlessly continue to type away without the need for your mouse.

You can also adjust the playback speed and the skip speed of your audio > click on the Settings icon:

Integrating with your Keyboard's Media Buttons 

If you're using Google Chrome, you can install the InventoryBase Media Keys extension to control audio playback with your keyboard's play, pause, rewind and skip forward buttons. 

Integrating with your Foot Pedals

If you have Foot Pedals connected to your computer, like the VEC Infinity USB Pedals, you can make them work with InventoryBase for controlling audio playback while transcribing reports.
