How to correct your transcript
Before getting started
You'll need to import and transcribe a file into a composition. If you haven't done this or are unsure how to do this, check out our guide on importing and transcribing files.
Correcting a word or phrase
- In the Script editor, double-click on the word or section you want to correct.
- Click Correct in the script toolbar.
- Type the correction you want to make.
- Select Correct to make your correction, or Correct All to correct all instances of the word or phrase in your project. The word or words will be underlined briefly while the audio realigns with the new text.
Use the Correction Mode for multiple changes
- In the script editor, double-click a word, and click Correct in the script toolbar.
- Select Enter correct text mode.
- Make changes to the transcript as needed; these changes will only affect the text and not the underlying media. The word will be underlined briefly while the audio realigns with the new text.
