Hello, dear all.
On the site below is pictured a woman on the photo. She is using a program to produce an audiobook I guess.
The link talks about the most best-selling audiobooks in Brazil by Google Play.
Do you know which program the woman is using? You can notice that the audio bar on the PC screen is very big. Probably to get a very precision time on the wave audio bar.
For timing / analysing speech ( ex: subtitling or dubbbing ) such big / very visible audio bar helps a lot.
I get very interested in such kind of program. If you know such program I would like to know. Or very similar ones. Freewares or not freewares.

Hi, dear all.
Hello. Thanks for your tips! I like Aegisub too for timing. But does it possible to make that program to show us a very big waveform on the screen, for timing the audio?
In the picture at the beginning of the thread the waveform audio is very very big. This help a lot for timing with high precision.
Thanks for your time!
Sorry for the late reply, I'm kind of busy at work.
Yes, it does help to do a more precision job and correct timing.
A spectrogram mesures signal amplitude or strength that is represented by graphics as demonstrated above, since we are talking about voice there is a thing called vocal sibilance in the syllables C, S, T and Z. This vocal sibilance leaves a pronounced mark in the spectrogram you can't see with a waveform, specially when there are two or more people talking together or the voices are overlapping each other.
We use the spectrogram so we can have a graphic representation of what is happening in some critical point and especially for precision marking. I've attached a small sample showing some people talking with their voices overlapping, you can clearly identify who is person "A" and who is person "B". The spectrogram is a much more powerful tool to be used to do subtitling and transcriptions than the waveform, the waveform can get the job done but it's is very, very limited.
Have a good one johner.

Hi. Nice tips!
Thanks for your help too! I'll try using spectrum display on Aegisub.
For curiosity I could found that Reaper can produce subtitles too. Such program is not for subtitling purposes, but can do it also. Maybe not so simple as Aegisub, Subtitle Edit or Sub Station Alpha, but can do it.
I'll post the links for all interested people in other thread.
With all respect but spectrogram is not spectrum.
Plain spectrum doesn't use time axis...
