Audio word processing

Editing audio is as intuitive as your favorite text editor. Cut, paste, copy and delete — remix your text, and your audio follows.

You’ll wonder how you ever managed the old way.

Meet the Wordbar™

Descript's Wordbar™ makes waveform editing a breeze. Drag a word to give it some breathing room — or nudge it closer to its neighbors. Automatic crossfades make this the editor you’ve always wished for.

Export anywhere

The journey of your voice audio begins with Descript, and probably ends somewhere else. A slew of text, audio, subtitle, and non-destructive export options make Descript ready for any workflow.
