Realign words in a transcript

When an automatically transcribed file returns with misaligned text (i.e. your transcript is not lining up correctly with the corresponding audio), you can:

  1. Select a range of script — you can do this by highlighting the text in the Script editor, or by using the Range tool icon Range tool in the Timeline.

  2. From the Timeline, right-click on the selected range.

  3. Select Realign words in range.

Descript will re-run the word alignment for that script section so you don't have to manually adjust word boundaries.
