Recorded audio is of great use to many people. There are countless situations in which recorded audio can be used in important ways. Consider a politician listening to a recorded speech of another politician, a French student listening to the recording of a French teacher, or simply a secretary listening to a recording of a meeting to transcribe it.
In all of these instances and many more, recorded audio is extremely important. But sometimes the person speaking in the audio file has a speed that is difficult to keep up with. To fix the audio speed, people use numerous applications. However, these apps change the speed of the audio without keeping the pitch intact. Here to offer a solution to this problem is an app called Speedible.
Speedible is a desktop application for Mac computers. This desktop app is tiny, sized at only 200KB. Computer requirements for the app include a machine running Mac OS X 10.7 or later and a 64 bit processor. Once you have the application installed, you can use it to listen to audio files. Through the app’s options, you can speed up or speed down the audio files.
The good thing is that the pitch is retained so the audio still sounds like somebody talking normally – just fast or slow, depending on your changed speed. The app is perfect for slowing down audio recording in another language or speeding up audio to upload in your podcasts.
Speedible app costs $7.99. Fortunately the developers of this app have generously provided 30 free licenses to the first 30 MakeUseOf readers who share this post on Facebook and then leave comment below.
