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.
First, click on Share button at the top-right of the application window then select the Export tab.
The Cloud Export section allows you to choose between publishing to a Page, Audiogram, or one of the available cloud content platforms.
If you only want to publish a selection of your text, make sure to highlight your text prior to clicking the Publish/Share button.
When you publish to a Page, your Composition (or selection) will be exported to the cloud. A shareable link that you can provide to your listeners, or embed in a webpage.
Here you can edit the Page name, copy the shareable link, and toggle the display of comments or the transcript. You can even Unpublish or Republish an update to your Page.
Whenever a user comments on your published file, you will be notified by email.
Once you're ready, click Publish and a link to your new page will be copied to your clipboard that you can paste wherever you like. You can also click to open the file, or copy an embeddable code to add to your webpage.
Audiograms allow you to create a unique text version of your media with a variety of templates and display features.
When you choose to export your media to YouTube, you will first be prompted to publish your Page.
After your file is published, you'll have the opportunity to modify basic YouTube display settings for the Description, tags, Privacy settings and category. When complete, click the Sign in button.
