Getting started is free - you can download Descript, transcribe up to 30 minutes of media, and use the editing features without even entering a credit card.
Descript Basic is our starter plan. There's no monthly fee, and transcription is 15¢ per minute of audio. You can't export edited audio/video files, and you can't upload files larger than 250mb. But if you don't need, this is a good plan if you only occasionally need to transcribe things.
Descript Producer includes all of our media editing and exporting features. It’s $20 / month when purchased annually, or $24 / month when purchased monthly, and includes transcription (up to four hours) for free. Additional transcription is 7¢ per minute. Or you can increase your monthly max at a rate of $4 per hour. Upgrade to Descript Producer on your account page.
Descript Teams include centralized billing and account management. Teams are $25 / month when purchased annually, or $29 / month when purchased monthly, and include 4 hours of transcription per user per month. Additional transcription is 7¢ per minute. You can create a Team here.
White Glove (i.e. human-powered) transcription is $1.25 per minute, regardless of your plan.
We also have special pricing for non-profits and students.
