Commenting in projects

Descript's commenting features make it easy to annotate your transcript within a project — and the audio beneath it.

Comments created in a Descript project are not the same as comments provided on a published web page – project comments are private to those with access to a project, and page comments appear on published web pages.

Leaving a Comment

  1. Select some words in your transcript or double-click on just one.
  2. Select Comment_icon_V50.png in the hover menu.
  3. A comment box will appear in the right margin. Type out your comment and click Post. All open comments will be visible along the right side of the script.

Once you have posted a comment, you or your collaborator can also reply to the comment from the side panel
 

Mentions

You can tag collaborators by typing the @ symbol in a comment box and a list of your collaborators - drive members or users you have given project access. Tagged users will receive a notification email with the contents of your comment.
 

Archiving a comment

You can archive comments by clicking the circle icon in the top right corner of the comment box.
