Does Descript struggle with uncommon words like, for example, your name? Or maybe your organization's name?

There's a quick fix!

It's called the Transcription Glossary.

By adding words to it, you are telling Descript to look out for those words and 'training' it to get better at transcribing them.

Adding words to the transcription glossary is simple, here's how to do it:

  1. Inside of a project, click on the D logo at the top left.
  2. Put your mouse on 'Tools'
  3. Click on 'Transcription Glossary'
  4. In the box that pops up, add your uncommon words, separated by a line break (hit return key on your keyboard)
  5. After you've added up to 30 words, click Done.

That's it! Next time you add an audio or video file to your project, there is a higher chance that Descript will transcribe it accurately.

Happy transcribing.
