Without wishing to be controversial, some of us have been transcribing for
several years and have used the other transcribing software. Whilst WinBMD
is an excellent product and has many more user friendly facilities than
SpeedBMD, those of us that have used the latter find that over the years we
have got used to certain shortcuts in our transcribing and would like to
see them in WinBMD. We are only suggesting to Ian that he includes them on
his next version. It is up to him to decide whether it is necessary or
worthwhile to put them in. Obviously none of us would want him to be tied to
his computer trying to upgrade WinBMD if such an upgrade was extremely time
consuming. We all know he gives his time for free and we are all grateful
that he has done so and continues to do so

I have been reading these comments for changes to the program with some

it ain't broke don't fix it. It seems to me as if the changes people want
come to fruition, then the programmer will be sat at his computer for the
next few years. If he makes all the changes requested, then other people
will want changes and it will probably never end. So far I have not had a
problem with WinBMD V6 on Vista and fingers crossed I never will. I am happy
with the way it is and come on you lot out there, give the programmer a
