Replace Transcript
Descript now allows you to fully replace a transcription for a file that has already been transcribed. Simply right-click on the file in your media library, select Replace > Replace transcription. You can paste in the new transcription into the text dialog.
This is great for users who want to get started editing before their white glove transcription is complete, or receive a pre-written transcription from another third party after-the-fact.
Resume Autoscrolling
Descript now allows you to re-focus the script view back to the moving playhead with a single click, as you navigate around the script during playback.
You can either click the grave accent ` (backtick) during playback, or click the auto-scrolling button at the bottom right of the application image
