transcription software?

Of interest perhaps to only a very few, but I just found this link. I'm terribly behind in transcribing interviews (and writing fieldnotes, as I've mentioned). This is partly due to how long it takes to transcribe even an hour of interviews. My digital recorder allows me to slow down speech a little so that I can try to type as I listen, but it doesn't have a lot of nuance with rewinding and forwarding. A number of times I've accidentally gone to the beginning of the interview (when I was half way through), and the forwarding speed is glacial. I'm excited about this software, if it works, maybe I'll be a newly productive researcher. Or, I'll continue being delusional that tools and technology will somehow transform my behaviors.
