Once the correction wizard is finished scanning your script, you'll see words underlined in green in your script. These are words the correction wizard flagged as potential transcription errors.

Descript will automatically playback the section in your project with the potential error; you can either make a correction or just press Continue through to each word until all detected transcription errors are reviewed, or you can exit the Correction Wizard at any time and resume later.

Word suggestions

The correction wizard will even make correction suggestions. Simply start the correction wizard and hover over the detected error. If there is a suggested correction, it will appear shortly after you hover over the word.
