Some startup ideas take you about a week to get your head around. Others fill a hole in the universe that you can't believe you never saw - you get them in 30 seconds. @DescriptApp is one of these

Instead of editing the waveforms, Descript transcribes the audio for you using Google Speech. You then edit the text like you would with any text editor and Descript automatically edits the audio to match. I have to say, it feels a lot like magic.

The app is scarily good. Never seen anything like it, in fact I've often tried to search for something like it, but I'm not sure the words even exist. You've thought of almost everything. I can't merit this enough. Already recommended to a few friends.

Frequently Asked Questions

What's the difference between Descript Windows and Descript Mac?

Descript Mac supports audio editing features. They're coming soon to Windows as well. Here's a feature comparision of Descript for Windows, Mac, and Web.


How accurate is Descript's automatic transcription?

Descript (and most automatic transcription services) uses a third-party transcription engine — the accuracy provided by bigger companies is far superior to anything that could be built independently. Descript uses Google Speech, which, after extensive testing, we found to be the most accurate transcription service by a long shot.


What are you doing to protect the privacy of my audio?

When you add audio to Descript to be transcribed, we send it to Google's Speech-to-Text transcription service, then store it using Amazon Web Services. Both Google and Amazon take extensive precautions to safeguard your data. All data is encrypted in transit. For more, see our page on Security & Privacy.
