Download Transcribe! for Linux

First, please check this page where there are some notes about specific Linux distros.

Note about outputting audio
The commonest problem that people have with the Linux version is that sound won't output, and that Transcribe! may freeze, or pause for several seconds before starting to play sound. If this happens to you then please see the FAQ here.

Unpack the download with "tar -xzf xscsetup.tar.gz". It is a binary distribution so there may be other issues with library versions etc. There is more information in the readme you will find in the download.

If the application won't launch by double-clicking its icon then try launching it in a console instead, so you can see the error message.
