iPads are increasingly popular as primary/travel computers. Would be very helpful if I could work on Descript projects on an iPad!
Correct text/audio alignment errors
If the auto-transcription fails to detect a string of words in the audio, you can edit the transcript and add them in. The software will make a judgement about which waveforms to align these words to. However, if the software makes an incorrect assessment it is currently not possible to manually adjust the word positioning.
Filler Words - Don't ignore/remove unless they can be cleanly removed
Many filler words that are automatically removed result in a harsh cut of the audio. I would like an option that only removes filler words that can be cleanly removed. For example, if the filler word has a pause between the start and end of it.
I am editing a panel discussion, and we have to edit it down to 60 mins. To be fair I want to have running total of how long each person is speaking for in the script. So it should say "Mark, 45 minutes", "John, 34 minutes"
Export Overdub voices at different speeds
I would love to be able to export overdub audio with different playback speeds. For example, typing out a script, set the playback speed to 0.9x, and then export at 0.9x. Thanks!
It would be really helpful to be ale to import markers and notes. I already have markers with timestamps that I did in another program, and I could easily export them in an xml file. It would be very nice to be able to import them and embed them into transcripts as parentheticals.
Publish Subtitles Automatically to YouTube
I'm already using Descript to publish my video to YouTube, it should also automate adding my subtitles too.
