Limit history to N days
Currently, the recording history will grow without limit unless you click to delete them one at a time or delete using Finder. Add a feature, enabled by default, to limit the recording history to N days.
Add list of specific jargon and words
Users can provide a list of jargon e.g. company name, domain-specific words
Choose which literal punctuation to enable
I find Whisper's automatic punctuation good for my dictation, but I would like to be able to control paragraphs and new lines. Being able to enable "new line" and "new paragraph" only would let me do this.
Transcribe external audio files from eg. Voice Notes or other sources
It would be extremely useful if I could use superwhisper to transcribe sources of data other than immediate recordings such as my voice notes from my phone, or other recordings I have around. I'm not exactly sure about the user interface here, but it would be useful if I could just drag in a bunch of files, whether into the UI or even into a subdirectory inside the recordings folder, which would be auto-detected and transcribed and given the same kind of text file as a companion output.
Pause Music when I start to talk
Hi, I don't know if this is technically feasible and how complex, but it will be great. It's very niche, but it's a super nice detail. I usually work with music. When I am about to speak to superwhisper, I need to pause the music, talk, and then resume the music. If I have the music while I talk I get distracted. It would be awesome if superwhisper can pause any music for Spotify and other music apps (or any source) when I start talking. And then, resume it again.
There is only one expensive, buggy option here on Windows, a proper alternative would be most welcome.
Add confirmation dialogue to cancel function.
Sometimes I press ESC in other apps, resulting in the recording being accidentally lost before processing. A confirmation prompt could avoid that. This could be set as optional. Alternatively the ability to recover interrupted recordings in a temporary folder would also help.
Management of recordings processing and LLM post-processing.
Besides being able to upload external audio files, it would be great to enable the re-processing or post-processing of previously recorded material. For instance after changing the prompt.
Easier/automatic way to change mic input
Every time I dock and undock my Mac, I have to reset the microphone for input. I can set it as the default for the Mac, but I still face the same issue when docking or undocking - I need to change the microphone input (at the system level). It would be great to have an easier way to change the input without going into settings. One option could be to have it accessible from the menu bar. Another idea is to implement automatic detection, where the system always defaults to the selected microphone if available. Additionally, it would be helpful to display the currently selected microphone on the recording modal that appears with the waveforms. This way, I can avoid recording a long message only to realize later that the wrong microphone was used when processing it.
