Overall Satisfaction with Descript

I have been using Descript to transcribe a number of User Interviews and Focus Groups.
  • Transcription
  • Generous free tier
  • Great desktop app
  • Ability to remove filler words and record directly within the app
  • When editing a transcript it can get a little cumbersome, as a double click doesn't always do what you think it will
  • Some features aren't that intuitive (what is resize word gap) for beginners
  • A tutorial/wizard as soon as you sign up would be very useful
  • Accurate transcription
  • Ability to handle large audio files
  • Ability to share files and workspaces
  • Very nice user interface
  • It has cut the time I dedicate to transcriptions in half
It works as well as Otter transcribing and with similar accuracy, but has a much better free tier, and has workspace management features that are more robust.

Do you think Descript delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

Are you happy with Descript's feature set?


Did Descript live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Descript go as expected?


Would you buy Descript again?


Great for transcribing User Interviews, Focus Groups etc. If you need to heavily edit the text of the transcription (formatting or foreign words, etc) it's not that intuitive
