Business description: Descript is an audio word processing platform that enables editor and producers to edit sound files while a writer would edit its lyrics. It offers anyone editing audio files, whether podcasters, journalists, or musicians, the ability to edit single-track audio clips as easily as they would edit words in a word processing document. Descript is powered by Google Speech, ensuring clients to get state-of-the-art transcription accuracy. Audio is synced to text, so the users can always hear the sound beneath the words - and search audio by searching text.
