I Need To Speed Up Audio Playback - Help!

I've got some voice audio files that I need to decipher but the problem is that there are big gaps between people speaking (I guess a bit like an ATC feed where they don't talk continuously). I don't have the time to listen to the whole files from end to end when there's only perhaps a couple of mins of folks talking in a 30 min file.

What I need is to somehow fast forward the audio, BUT still be able to hear the audio at the same time. I notice in Windows Media Player 9 you can do this BUT ONLY if you have Win XP Home Edition or Pro, which I don't (Win 2000 Pro here).

I've had a look at Real Player but they don't seem to offer the option.

Anyone have any solutions?

I use a piece of software call Total Recorder from High Criteria that has a pause reduction feature that allows you to automatically delete out dead air from audio files.

I use it in recorded lectures when the lecturer asks a question and waits 30 seconds or so for a response.

Hope that helps.

It is very easy to do in Windows Media Player (version 10).

a) Open the sound file that you want to play.

b) Click View, Enhancements, Play Speed Settings

c) A control panel will appear at the bottom with a adjustable slide-bar for speed.


Edit: This will work on any sound or video file saved to your hard drive. However it will not work on files you are playing from the internet such as YouTube videos, etc.

Ah, sorry about that. I thought it was built into WMP itself, not the version of Windows. In any case, it's a cool feature. It adjusts the speed of a song, but does not change its pitch.
