Text correction keyboard shortcuts

While editing your script, three hotkeys are useful for making quick edits to your transcript:

  • Hold down Z and click a word to toggle capitalization on or off.
  • Hold down X and click a word to cycle through a space, comma, or period character.
  • Highlight text and press C to correct text; pressing C will enable the correction tool if text is not selected.

Correct text mode

Descript also has a special mode for users who want to focus exclusively on correction called Correct text mode which will outline your script in blue while correcting. While working in Correct text mode, you can make corrections to your script without affecting the underlying media.

To enter this mode, you can press the keyboard shortcut Option + C (macOS) or Alt + C (Windows).
