Automatic transcription is fast, cheap, and 95% accurate — but manually adding speaker labels is a drag. With Descript’s new AI Speaker Detective, we do it automatically.
To get the new version, open or restart Descript and you’ll be prompted to update, or download it here.
How it works
Add a file and check the box.
In a minute or two, Descript will let you know how many speakers it’s detected — 2, 5, 12! Your job is to name who’s who.
Run the Speaker Detective to quickly name each speaker. Use Enter
to continue and your hands will never leave the keyboard.
Like any detective, the Speaker Detective isn’t perfect — that’s why we’ve made it easy to make corrections. If a label is off by a word or two, just drag it to the correct boundary and your script will update.
Edit away! Once you add labels, Descript remembers and intelligently applies them even as you cut, copy, paste, cut, paste, delete, copy, paste across compositions.
Try it. The Detective runs as your file is transcribed, so you’ll still get an automatic transcription in minutes, now with smart speaker labels.
🎉No more manual labelling!
