Wordless Media Labels

Descript's label feature allows you to tag ranges of wordless media in the script track. They provide a convenient way to assure that non-speech audio is labeled, which is essential for open and closed captions.

Adding labels

You can add a label to a selected range in the script track following the steps below:

  1. Select a range of audio in the Timeline using the Range tool.
  2. Right-click the clip and choose the Add label for range option.
  3. You can rename the label by right-clicking on the label in the script, clicking Edit label..., then enter the new label name and click Save.
Why can't I add a label to my clip?

Labels can only be added to audio and video files that have been transcribed and placed in the script track of the Timeline. If nothing happens after you select Add label for range, try transcribing the file first. Please note that ranges cannot be placed on clips in the layer lane (above the script track), or on multitrack sequences.

Removing labels

You can remove a label from your script track audio following the steps below:

  1. Click the labeled section of audio in your script to select it.
  2. Right-click the labeled audio and choose Edit label...
  3. Click the Snag_ab45f85.png Remove label button.

At this point, if there is some text that needs to be restored to the audio, you can now add it back in using by correcting your transcript.
