Audiograms are a great way to create meaningful visualizations of your text/audio and share it with your friends, family and followers. With Descript, you can easily turn highlights from your composition into an audiogram, then either save or share it online! 

Features labeled with Pro_Badge.png are available on Descript's Pro plan.
