In the last few years, automatic transcription has crossed a threshold where it’s now accurate enough to be useful. A slew of new automatic transcription services are being built on top of that technology, offering the promise of a future free of painstaking by-hand transcription. But transcription is only the beginning.
With Descript, you can edit audio footage by modifying its text transcript: cut and paste key passages together, remove superfluous words and more— without touching a waveform (though you can do that too).
Descript transforms the workflow of anyone working with voice audio — whether you need a straightforward transcript for a print story, are producing a podcast, have mountains of interview footage to pull excerpts from or videos to caption.
Descript CEO Andrew Mason will provide an overview of the state of automatic transcription technology, and then show you how to use Descript for both simple transcription and full audio editing. Be among the first to learn about this exciting new tool.
