Scribe is an online platform for the investigative journalist of the future. Its main purpose is to provide them with a workspace in which they can easily organize their various sources.This is achieved by presenting them an user-friendly dashboard layout along with a combination of new technologies called “modules”. These modules offer particular features intended to speed up the workflow of the journalist, such as audio-to-text converter or automatic tagging, as well as to increase the lifespan of their stories.
