To export your transcript, click the Share  button in the top-right corner of the app. The bottom section of the panel that appears will display your export options:

Document - This exports your transcript as a Microsoft Word (.docx) document. 

  • By default the document will display timestamps at 60-second intervals, you can change this to whatever frequency you’d like, or to omit timestamps entirely.

Subtitles / Captions - Your transcript can be exported as a SubRip Titles (.srt) or Video Text Titles (.vtt) file. These files can be imported into most video editing applications, making Descript for Windows a great way to get quick, accurate subtitles. 

  • Note that while Descript for Windows can't import video files directly, you can extract the audio from your video and use the resulting audio file to generate your subtitles and captions. Here's a quick YouTube video that shows how to extract audio using VLC.
