What free software can you recommend that offers great control over the timer display? I'm working as a transcriber and I need to often pause the interview and go back at a certain point in time. Usually, it's 5 seconds back, but it varies from 3 seconds to 10 seconds. Precision is paramount, because it would save me a lot of time, since there are interviews that the speech is not very clear, and where I have to often go back to a phrase. A good precision would save me a lot of time and frustration.
It would therefore be nice to be able to go back 5 or 10 seconds, but also to have an input box where I set the exact timer in seconds. For example, 1:45 (one minute and forty-five seconds).
iTunes is bad at this (unless I haven't found out about a hidden feature) and while VLC is better, it's still about dragging the position on the control.
