How marketers use Descript

80% of consumers prefer watching a video to reading text.

Video is clearly the more effective way to reach consumers. It’s more engaging, it converts better...  but making good video is hard, time consuming, and expensive. Descript makes powerful editing easy and collaborative, so you can tell your story with video without an editing degree.

An all-in-one audio/video multitool for marketers

Descript’s all in one audio/video editor is an essential part of the marketing toolkit. With one tool, you can make podcasts, record and edit product demos videos, create audiograms for social media, add subtitles to your videos, generate ultra realistic text to speech voiceover, organize customer research, and a lot more.

Descript can turn any storyteller into a video editor

With Descript, you edit audio and video by editing text. Cut, copy, paste, and delete text, and the audio/video goes along for the ride. If you know how to use a word processor, you know how to use Descript.

Descript’s powerful screen recorder makes it perfect for product videos

Use our built-in screen recorder to quickly capture your screen and webcam. Descript transcribes and uploads as you record, so you can share a playable transcript in an instant.

Editing your screen recording is as simple as pasting it into Descript. Remove filler words with a click, or use Descript’s advanced video editing capabilities to make add narration, music titles, animations, transitions, and more.

Use Overdub for ultra realistic voiceover

Don’t have access to voiceover talent? Use Overdub, our ultra realistic text to speech synthesis engine, to type your voiceover. Pick from our selection of high quality stock voices, or create your own voice by recording as little as ten minutes of audio.

Descript is built for teams

Descript is the first audio and video editing tool with Google Docs style commenting and live collaboration, making it easier than ever for all your stakeholders to contribute and give feedback.

And with Overdub, incorporating editorial feedback no longer requires the technical, tedious, time-consuming process of recording pickups - just delete the old words and type new ones to generate audio and correct your voiceover.

Prepare your audio and video for social media

Descript is the easiest way to create great-looking audiograms of your podcast, perfect for sharing on social media channels.

Descript’s tools for searching and organizing video make it the ideal tool for capturing user research. Make highlight reels with copy and paste, and use our powerful search functionality to quickly find keywords across multiple videos.

Descript is a collaborative audio/video editor that works like a doc. It includes transcription, a screen recorder, publishing, and some mind-bendingly useful AI tools.
