Download Transcribe! for Windows

Please select the appropriate version of Transcribe! for your Windows version.

This is a self installing executable. Click to download the file. Once it is downloaded to your computer, double-click it to install Transcribe!

When installation is complete you can launch Transcribe! from the Start menu, or from the desktop icon if you selected that option during installation.

The current version of Transcribe! is for 64-bit Windows, but we have kept an older version available for people running 32-bit Windows. These days the great majority of Windows 10 installations are 64-bit. To find out whether you have Windows 64-bit: Select Settings on the Start menu (the "gear" icon). On the Settings page that comes up, select "About", at the bottom of the list of items in the left column. This brings up an information page, and you will see a message saying "System type 64-bit operating system", or 32-bit of course. Or you can download the current Transcribe! version and try it. If you are running 32-bit Windows then the installer will tell you why it can't install it.

Windows 10 and 11, 64-bit

With this version of Transcribe! you may also want to download GStreamer, mainly if you want to handle video.
Be aware that if you have previously been running Transcribe! version 8 with GStreamer then version 9 will tell you that GStreamer is not installed. This is because version 8 Transcribe! was 32-bit while version 9 is 64-bit and cannot use the 32-bit version of GStreamer. So in that case you will need to install the 64-bit version of GStreamer, which of course we provide on this page:

Also be aware that installing this version will not replace or uninstall version 8 or earlier Transcribe!, because Windows stores 64-bit and 32-bit programs in different places. So if you want to uninstall a previous 32-bit Transcribe! version then you will need to do that explicitly in Windows "Settings" - "Uninstall a program".

Windows 10, 32-bit

With this version of Transcribe! you may also want to download GStreamer, mainly if you want to handle video. Note that if you have already installed GStreamer then you don't need to install it again when you update Transcribe!

Please note that Microsoft support for Windows 7 ended on January 14, 2020.
This means that it is not a good idea to continue using Windows 7, as there will be no further security updates and your computer would be wide open to malware. You should update to Windows 10 or 11.

Microsoft support for Windows 8.1 will end on January 10, 2023.

On Windows 8 if you are looking at the "Metro" screen (the square tiles) rather than the desktop, then an easy way to start Transcribe! is to simply start typing "transcribe", and Windows 8 will find it.
