  • InqScribe 2.2.5 Out Now!

    Posted on January 15th, 2022 Alex No comments

    An update to InqScribe is now available for Windows and macOS versions 10.14 and earlier. This is a very small update that adds two things:

    • Enhanced support for future evaluation license requests
    • Updates to various support URLs.

    That means if you recently requested a trial license and are currently running InqScribe version 2.2.4 or earlier, you will need to update. You can update by opening the app and selecting “InqScribe > Check For Updates…” (macOS) or “Help > Check For Updates” (Windows). You can also download directly from our website at

    Why the small update? We want to continue offering trials of version 2.2 while our more substantial 2.5 update is still in beta. Note that the 2.2.5 update will not run on macOS 10.15 and later, which includes Catalina, Big Sur, and Monterey. If you’re using any of these more recent versions of macOS, please download the InqScribe 2.5 Beta:

    If you were previously running the InqScribe 2.5 Beta, there is no need to update. More information about the 2.5 Beta can be found in our 2.5 Beta release announcement.

    If you have any questions about InqScribe, or if you experience any issues with the new release, please contact us at

  • InqScribe Beta Update

    Posted on April 23rd, 2020 ben No comments

    A new version of our InqScribe 2.5 beta is now available for macOS. As you may already know, version 2.5 is an upcoming update that brings a new HD interface, an improved media engine, and full macOS Catalina/Big Sur support. Both this public beta and the soon-to-come official release will be free to current InqScribe license holders.

    This new beta update is mostly concerned with bug fixes and small tweaks and extends the expiration date to 7/21/2020. Here’s what’s new:

    • Better management of keyboard shortcuts across keyboard layouts.
    • Unmuting now more reliably restores the prior volume.
    • InqScribe once again warns you if you try to assign the same key combination to multiple shortcuts.
    • Minor UI improvements and bug fixes.

    You can get the new update by downloading it directly from Windows users, hold tight! The 2.5 Windows build is coming soon.

    For more information about the 2.5 beta, read our initial release post here. If you encounter any issues with the beta, or if you have any questions, contact us at

Take a look at his step-by-step guide for how to integrate these applications to quickly and easily produce subtitles for  film projects.
