Asking help for opening a tpf file for transcription
I have problems with opening audio recording files for transcription via Filezilla
How to use Notepad or Notepad ++ to open each text file ? How to listen to the wav files ? Could you give some useful links to support a transcriber ?

Thank you in advance

There are several questions hidden in your request.
I'm not sure what a tpf file is in your context, but maybe i can help with the other issues.

Filezilla is an ftp transfer utility, not any kind of interface for opening a file. You transfer the file, save it to your system and open the file with some other software.

A text file would be opened by Notepad or Word, or whatever your preferred text editor is.

If you have a wav file, i.e. a sound file, then you need an audio player. This can be as simple as Windows Media Player, or you can download transcription software that allows you to control the speed, stop and start, etc. Try this one: ( http://www.nch.com.au/scribe/index.html )

I don't know about TPF files, but FileZilla is an FTP program -- is that what you mean? FileZilla is just a way of transferring files from your client's computer to your computer. You can transfer any type of file -- the files aren't called "FTP files" (except perhaps if the client refers to them like that, to indicate that you should get them using an FTP program such as FileZilla).

So, FileZilla is used to get the files onto your computer. If you want to open these files, you have to open them using other programs (and not from within FileZilla).

How to use Notepad or Notepad ++ to open each text file? How to listen to the wav files? Could you give some useful links to support a transcriber?


Can't you open text files by double-clicking on them? Or, if you're using Notepad++, can't you use the "File > Open" method (or similar)?

For transcription, I recommend Express Scribe (it's free):

1. Are these files ZIP files or RAR files?

2. The word "archive" is just computer-speak for ZIP files (or RAR files).

3. Make sure that the file size of the file on the client's server is the same as the size on your computer -- if not, then it may indicate that the file did not transfer completely, which would result in unzipping errors (e.g. WinRAR errors).

Did you extract the files or are they still in the archive? Mar 28, 2011

How did you open the files? If you have just opened the archive in Windows, the text files you see might still be in the archive. Don’t open them from there. A lot of strange things can happen if you try to do that. Copy the files you need to your hard drive and then open those copies.

file size Mar 28, 2011

Yes, you are right . The original's size is 422 712 558 Kn
The size of the file on my hardver is 268 324 KB "There is no end of the archive ."

Something went wrong with the downloading.

I haven't worked with the latest version of Express Scribe (now called Express Dictate) extensively, but it appears that you can save the text using Dictation > Export Notes.

The text (or notes) from Express Dictate appear to be saved in a text file that is UTF8N (in other words, it is UTF8, but it is not in Windows format, so you may need to convert it to Windows format before sending it to the client. To do that, open the TXT file in MS Word (and select UTF8) and then just save it again immediately. Test it to see if you can do it.
