Eye Contact
No teleprompter? No problem. Descript’s AI will make it look like your eyes were locked on the camera, even if you were reading off-screen.

Remove Filler Words
Instantly hunt down and easily remove all the “ums,” “uhs,” “likes,” and “you knows” to make yourself sound smarter (even if you’re not).
AI Speech
Creating a voice clone so you can correct audio mistakes or even create new spoken audio just by typing. Or use one of our stock voices for no-mic-required voice-overs.

Frequently asked questions

What platforms can Descript create short-form video for?
Instagram. TikTok. LinkedIn. YouTube Shorts. Twitter (or X if we must). Facebook. In other words, all of them.
Can I use Descript to repurpose webinars and other long-form video?
Oh yeah. Just drag your video file in, get a transcript, and ask Descript’s AI to find your most social-worthy highlights. Then clip them, add your branding, and post those suckers. It’s literally that easy.
What are AI clips and will people think I’m a monster for using them?
AI clips could just be clips you make with the help of AI tools like Descript’s. Nothing wrong with that — your creativity is still an absolute necessity. AI clips could also be fake or shoddy content made entirely using generative AI tools. Posting those might not make you a monster, but it’s pretty uncool if you ask us — mostly because the quality is still pretty terrible.
What about that Mr. Beast?
The videos are tough to watch if you’re over the age of 13. But the burgers are excellent.
