Is there a keyboard shortcut hotkey to start/stop playback? I see one for slower and faster.(Ctrl-S Ctrl-F)

Playback control is handled via the multimedia keys defined in the GNOME settings. On many notebooks which have dedicated multimedia keys, these work out of the box. On other machines, you might have to adjust the multimedia keybindings.

The advantage of this solution instead of defining hotkeys in the application is, that these keys also work when the application does not have focus. So when you type while having Transcribe running in the background, you can still control playback using the multimedia hotkeys.

haha thanks, my netbook doesn't have multimedia buttons but I changed the settings and made new key combos.
