    Greatings ! I have been installed Parlatype on Linux Ubuntu. After this I run it and played a mp3 file. Ok, that’s fine.
    But I’ve searched the way to transcribe the audio to a text and I cannot find this ?
    At the second time I’ve opened Libre Office to look for a tool that do that task or that do that with Parlatype.
    Finally I didn’t have success. Would you please give me a help ? Thank you !
