"Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today."

Sir Richard Branson

Most popular feedback for Descript

Descript helps my team collaborate with clients on their podcast episodes. Hosts give us their recordings and then they leave us feedback in the form of comments on the transcript. It makes communication clear for everyone on our team and the collaboration features make it possible for us to have our remote team. We are able to help our clients sound their best with the filler word detection, something that would not be an effective option if we were editing with audio alone.

This app met all of my clients needs, and we will be requesting this app as a component of an iPad based communication device. The app has a simple interface with a well designed, easy to navigate configuration.

Descript reviews

This is a must-have product that will simplify your life. You won't realize how much time it saves until you use it. Fortunately, there is a fantastic free trial to try it out. The shortcuts are really useful and will save you a significant amount of time. There is a lot to learn, but once you do, the software will save your life.

- Zaiba S.

This is could be a game changing piece of software. it combines transcription and audio editing into one. The option to collaborate in the cloud like a google doc opens up many possibilities. But there is one big downside....

- Verified Reviewer- Media Production

Makes me *want* to edit, can't believe I worked without Descript, far and away the best/coolest software I've ever used, I love you so much, can't imagine trying to edit any other way, impossibly futuristic, best productization of machine learning I've ever seen, one of the most earth-shatteringly spectacular pieces of software I've downloaded in years, makes me feel like I'm living in the future, mindbending... I don't know that I'll ever be able to edit audio in any other way again, completely changes your expectations of a whole software category, the most thoughtfully designed app I've seen in several years, I’ve just experienced a new level of sorcery

Predictable reviews

We have seen a huge increase in Joe’s confidence and willingness to communicate at school since he began using Predictable

- Jennifer Laughlin M.S. CCC-SLP

Stories “Thank goodness I now have my ModelTalker ‘voice’ to use with the Predictable app on the mini iPad provided by CAYA.” - Sara's story “Predictable knows what I want to say and helps me with my spelling. I am also using a fancy stylus which is easier than my finger to type. I use my iPad at my day program, at the doctor and a lot at my home. My house manager says that I talk more now and my confidence is better. I know I can talk to anyone. When I am tired, it’s Predictable all the way!”

- Tim Hill

“I got an iPad with the Predictable app from CAYA. The first time I used the app, it was new and a little bit scary in that respect. It has been hard but slowly I’m getting used to it. Kim has really encouraged me to use it. With Predictable I was able to participate in a Council meeting. To communicate with my kids (aged 6 and 11) it has been a real help. It has definitely helped me to communicate with all people.I wish that I didn’t need this but having you guys around is a blessing. That is something from the heart and I am really glad you people are around to help out.”

- Norman Gagatek

Pros & cons

Descript

Pros
Overall, I'm thrilled with what Descript has brought to my show
I'm even more excited to post new episodes now because I know each week the listeners are getting a better and better show
Overall I love it and definitely want to learn how to use the other features but I am extremely happy with the use of the features that I do know how to use
Descript helped me go from a complete novice at audio editing to very proficient within just a few weeks' time
I find Descript to be a super useful tool, and highly recommend it to others.
Cons
And they seem to always show up, even when they've been corrected previously, so it's unclear whether the 'machine' is actually 'learning
Because it is cloud based I had nothing on my hard drive to try and salvage
It just stopped working
That there is no way to edit two separate tracks in one audio
I.e
two people speaking with their own audios).
