SyncScribe Lite (Freeware)
Freeware (Lite version), Updated January 2019
Version 4.00 Windows 2 MB
Simplified version of SyncScribe, the video translation tool. Quickly insert the run-time of a media file into text documents using the F9 shortcut key.


Easy to use, just hit the shortcut keys.

Shortcut keys will insert timecodes and preconfigured formatted text directly into your document window.

  • For example, press the F9 key to automatically insert current position (timecode) of a playing video into MS Word, Excel, or Libre Office Document.
  • Press the F1 key to paste a pre-configured "speaker name" and video's current run-time into a MS Word or Libre Office document. *Feature not available for the freeware "Lite" version.
  • To toggle play/pause of the media player, press Ctrl + Space Bar. (Reduce repeatedly switching between media player and document windows)
             CTRL + Left
  • To rewind (jump backwards), press Ctrl + Left Arrow.
             CTRL + Left
  • New for SyncScribe v4.00! Shortcut keys for inserting SRT subtitle formatted timecodes with "-->" (arrow) for quicker creation of subtitles! (CTRL+F9, CTRL+SHIFT+F9,)
             CTRL + F9
  • Videos with imbedded ("burnt in" or BITC) time codes can be properly handled using SyncScribe's synchronize feature. (not available in freeware)

    Thus using shortcut keys will properly insert timecodes displayed within the video and not the acutal play-time.

    SyncScribe calculates the time difference between playtime and imbedded timecode. More details about Time Code Synchronization here.
