I do a lot of live speech recording that requires me to quickly jump back and then transcribe a particular piece of the audio, then go back to recording again, while still maintaining the full audio file.
So Far I've done this by splitting the audio and running one line to a recorder (for the whole audio), and one to my computer. Then I use something like Audacity to record, and then stop/go back whenever I hear something worth transcribing.
This requires me to stop the recording, then start it up again and I end up missing chunks of the speech I'm listening to.
Is there a tool that would let me rewind, then listen again and continue listening at a buffered distance from the audio recording, the way Tivo does with television shows?
Some additional info:
From my experience audio recognition software is incredibly slow and also impressively inaccurate; overall just not trustworthy, and certainly not timely enough for my work in particular. It often needs the recording to be completed anyway, and couldn't possibly keep up with live audio.
Without bothering with the details, I'm required to transcribe minor parts of speeches very quickly as they are being given for quotes. I record to a recorder for integrity, Even if the computer dies/lags/etc the standalone recorder will go on. (Even if I can't really use it until after the speech is finished) This has saved me more than once, so I'm fine with that part of the process.
I do actually have transcripts made after the fact, but even at a rushed rate (which usually runs at double or triple the standard rate) the best I can hope for is same day, let alone within a few hours.
