Frequently asked questions
Can I purchase additional transcription hours?
By default, the Descript Creator plan has a monthly transcription limit of 10 hours per editor. The Descript Pro plan has a monthly transcription limit of 30 hours per user. This helps us moderate demand and ensure a fast turnaround for everyone.

If you’re looking for a permanent change to your monthly hours, you can increase your transcription limit at $2 per hour here.



If you need a set amount of hours added to a given month, e.g., for a backlog of work coming through the pipeline, submit a request here and we can add hours as a one-time boost to your account at a rate of $2.50 per hour.
What if we want our full team to collaborate and provide feedback in Descript, but they don't need to edit?
Descript's free Basic Seats are what you need. Basic Seat members can view and comment on projects, and use our screen recorder. It's ideal for those who need to be involved in the creative process but don't need editing access.

Plus, you can easily upgrade Basic Seat members to Editors, giving them full editing capabilities as your project or team evolves. Learn more about Basic Seats and how they make it easy to involve your entire team without adding cost.

Do I need to enter a credit card to try Descript?
No, Descript's Free plan includes everything you need to record, transcribe, edit and mix audio and video content. If you'd like to continue transcribing after using your monthly 1 hour, you can upgrade to a paid plan and receive up to 30 hours of automatic transcription each month.
How are subscription payments processed?
Descript Pro and Creator plan subscriptions are processed automatically to the credit card you provide, according to your selected billing cycle. Users requiring custom invoicing options (such as ACH transfer) can reach out to our Enterprise team to learn more.
