I have multiple third party audio files of group discussions and meetings which have been auto transcribed with DPI 15.61.  Because there is no efficient way to clean up the pages of run-on sentences and paragraphs, I am hopeful I can use the transcript as an index to the audio file, but that requires using a timestamp function as the common index.

I have searched the forums and have found no discussions that appear relevant on this topic. Any ideas?

I will give it a look, although I am auto-transcribing third party audio files and no it the dra file created by Dragon.

Thanks for the suggestion and I'll let you know what happens.

When transcribing audio files in Dragon, you might as well create DRA files along with it.

A DRA file consists of three parts: the audio portion (in WAV format), the text portion (in TXT format), and a concordance, or index file in XML format, connecting the former two. My utility allows for extracting these parts from a DRA file as individual files in readable format. It will not be doing what you are looking for, at least not make it readily available, but it might be a first step into it, and that's about all there is anyway.

Everything appears to have extracted and worked as advertised. Thanks. But it is not clear to me how to use the idx file. I can view it with notepad, and Office 365 has an xml handler, but that essentially exhausts my familiarity with xml and idx files.

The file contents are "as is", as provided by Dragon, that is. The IDX file is used internally, when reviewing DRA files, for keeping the sync between audio and text. I am not producing the contents, and I haven't invented the methods used to extract them. They are also provided from within Dragon. The utility initiated from being requested to provide a way to extract the audio from a DRA file.

For starters, the timestamps are all listed at the end of the IDX file. If they are really essential to you, you might look into starting to work with them from there, or else ask me for further developing.
