Playback speed controls & patient playback

You can now adjust the playback speed of your audio. Just click the meter icon in the toolbar, and move the slider.

Playback speed was a common feature request, making it easier to correct transcription errors by slowing down playback. But when we tried it, we found that simply slowing down playback wasn’t hitting the mark: often there are only typos every ten or twenty words, and it’s annoying to listen to the accurate regions at a snail’s pace.

If you’re using Descript to correct transcripts, you’ll love this feature. Give it a try!

Support for video file formats

Drag any video file into Descript and it'll automatically rip and transcribe the audio.
