Tip: Create a SkipForward Shortcut

InqScribe has a useful SkipBack keyboard shortcut. Assigned to a key of your choice, Skipback jumps back in time by an amount that you specify. When you are transcribing in InqScribe, the SkipBack key is great for those “what did they just say” moments. You can hit it once to go back a little ways, or hit it several times to go back farther.

Recently, someone asked us if there was a Skip Forward shortcut that complemented SkipBack. There isn’t — we hadn’t thought to include one — but you can create a virtual Skip Forward shortcut by creating a New SkipBack shortcut and setting the duration of the skip to a negative number. So if you want a shortcut that skips ahead 10 seconds, just enter “-10” in a new SkipBack shortcut.
