MacSpeech Scribe Lion Woes Are Now Over - v1.1.1 Update

21 September, 2011

For those of us who have switched over to the latest and greatest from Apple, OS X 10.7 better known as Lion, it has come with a few issues for users of the legacy transcription from audio recording product by Nuance called MacSpeech Scribe.

Soon after the Lion release Nuance posted on their website that Scribe was not currently supported. This was until a few days ago when version 1.1.1 was released (grab yours via check for update) which should make Scribe finally stable and usable again on Lion.

Registered MacSpeech Scribe users would have/should have received an email earlier this week which read:

Dear MacSpeech Scribe User -

While testing our products with the new Mac OS X (Lion), we learned that MacSpeech Scribe customers experienced limited or incomplete product functionality when running the product on the new OS. Our engineering team quickly discovered the core issue and addressed compatibility concerns within the release of the new MacSpeech Scribe 1.1.1. This new version of the product (available as a free update to existing customers) installs and runs on Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard) and OS X 10.7 (Lion). 

Version 1.1.1 English is now available, and Scribe Medical, Legal, German, French, Italian and International versions will follow shortly. After opening Scribe, users will be presented with a dialog prompting them to update when they next launch the product. (If you are not prompted to download the update, you can access the update manually by selecting "Check for Updates" under the Scribe menu. 

Thank you for your patience while our engineering team worked to resolve this product issue. Please feel free to provide feedback regarding your product experience using our Product Feedback form. Our product management team relies on feedback from customers (including feedback and suggestions received through this form) to continually improve our products.

I am willing to bet at least a couple of dollars that MacSpeech Scribe is close to end of life and we will see deferred transcription from an audio file in their Dragon Dictate for Mac voice recognition software in the very near future.
