Automatic transcripts are great, but manually adding speaker labels was a drag. So, we created the Speaker Detective — speaker labels powered by AI. Here's how it works:

Add your file(s) and select Detect multiple speakers.

The Speaker Detective will run as your file is automatically transcribed. Typically, a 60-minute file takes 2–3 minutes. A notification will alert you when it’s done.

When the notification appears, click Identify speakers.

Listen and identify who’s speaking. Add new speaker names, or select an existing name from the list. 

When you’ve listened to all of the clips, close the window. Speaker labels will appear in your transcript.

Drag and drop to adjust the speaker labels.

Your speakers are now labelled! Once you add labels, Descript will remember them and apply them intelligently even as you cut, copy, and paste among compositions.
