MacSpeech today announced the release of its TranscriptionPak for iListen 1.7. The new TranscriptionPak allows users to use iListen 1.7 to transcribe speech from a recorded file and supports a variety of Olympus Digital Recorders as well as WAV or AIFF audio files. The new TranscriptionPak features completely rewritten documentation and includes the popular open source Audacity program to assist in converting and editing audio files saved in formats not supported by iListen. The TranscriptionPak retails for US$75 but MacSpeech is offering it for an introductory price of 50% off the retail price to anyone who purchases before October 1, 2006.
