Overall Satisfaction with Descript

Descript is used by [the] research analysts to transcribe and clean up interview recording transcripts. It is fast, and effective, and saves us a lot of money over paying for humans to transcribe calls. It automatically takes out filler words and is easy to import and export different kinds of files.
  • Transcribe audio interviews to text.
  • Identifies filler words, cleans them up to make the conversation smoother and easier to read.
  • Integrates with Zoom and other recording tools.
  • The product is updated almost every day. I would rather do updates not so often.
  • Sometimes (rarely) it doesn't see a new Zoom recording, and I have to manually upload it.
  • It still gets some words wrong, but it is improving.
  • Audio transcription.
  • Transcript clean-up.
  • Transcript file export.
  • Saves money on transcriptions.
  • Saves time in transcription management.

Transcribing audio phone calls for sales or research. It can get you a transcript for a 45-minute call in less than five minutes, and let you export it to Word or some other format easily. I am sure I am not using all the features Descript has, but it is a valuable tool I use every day.
