The Wordbar




Getting Started

Not only does the Wordbar tell you exactly what words a waveform is representing, but it's a great tool for quickly adding or removing space between words. 

You can adjust the space between words by clicking and dragging the text above the waveform. You'll also be able to see the length of the space between both sections of the audio clip. 




Frequently Asked Questions

Can I have multiple Wordbars? I have multiple tracks in my DAW but I don't see them in Descript.

You can use our Sequence feature for situations with multiple speakers, or our Pinned Track feature for sound effects or additional audio.


Can I adjust the position of words in the Wordbar so that my captions/subtitles line up correctly?

Yes! Check out the article Manually adjusting word boundaries to learn how.
