Publishing Overview


Descript's powerful publishing features allow you export a snapshot of your composition online, and provides you a URL that you can share with others. You can even publish your files to one of our publishing partners: Twitter, Buzzsprout, YouTube or Headliner!


Getting Started

First, click on the Share button at the top of the application window and then click the Publish tab. 


Note: If you only want to publish a selection of your text, make sure to highlight your text prior to clicking the Share button.

The Publish page allows you to choose between publishing an audio file, video file or an audiogram. You can choose to enable comments on your audio/video pages, or select from various types of audiogram templates and display features.


Note: Whenever a user comments on your published file, you will be notified by email.

Once you're ready, click Publish and you'll get a link to your new page that you can paste wherever you like.



Note: Depending on the size of your composition/selection, it may take a moment to render the export on the published page.

If you would like to upload your published file to one of our publishing partners Twitter, Buzzsprout or Headliner, click on the image link to sign in and upload the file. If you don't see your partner listed, click the Don't see your publisher? link to send us a note on which partner you would love to see integrated with Descript.

And that's it! You can now view the page, copy the link, or even download a copy to your desktop. If you've enabled comments, your collaborators will be able to make selections of the text and add comments as well.
