The Trim Tool

 

How to Trim Clips

Trimming clips is made easy in Descript. You can hover your mouse over the edit boundary and see the Trim Clip icon (Bracket with arrows on either side). From here you can click and drag to extend or shorten your audio clip.

For clips in the Wordbar you'll notice that as you trim the audio clip, words from the audio clip will be added or removed from the transcript.
