Qwaz Audio

Qwaz Audio is an intelligent audio recorder and player for iPhone, designed to help for transcription of audio files into text. It has been designed, crafted and tested for nearly four years by a journalist for its own daily needs.

Qwaz Audio is a valuable tool for journalists, social science researchers, students, writers, personal or private secretaries, press officers... It divides by about two the time spent on voice retranscription into text.

Qwaz Audio is based on a simple idea: setting the playing speed of the recording to fit the exact typing speed of the user, in order to prevent numerous stop/rewind actions that waste precious time. Qwaz Audio provides special signal processing to preserve audio pitch for voice or music, while slowering —or increasing— playing speed. It can also be used by musicians while transcripting audio recordings into scores, and by speech therapists when studying their patients voice disabilities.
