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

To leave a comment, select some words in your transcript (or double-click on one). A formatting menu will appear just above your selection — you're looking for the Comment  button, which is on the far-right side.

A commenting box will appear in the right margin. Type your comment, and click Post.

Your comment will be visible to your collaborators who view the Project wherever they're using Descript, including:

  • In the Descript for Windows app
  • In the Descript for Mac app (which displays the first comment in a thread in-app, along with a link to view the full thread).
  • In the Project's web view (accessible via the link in the Share panel)

Note: You can also leave comments via a Project's web view, which is the version you see when you open the Project link in your web browser.
