At the time of writing this, this is quite a new service with tonnes more on the way. Currently, I'm using Descript to find a short compelling narrative 3 to 5 minutes in length from over 2 hours of interview footage. The process of selecting story is amazing in that regard, being able to rearrange everything in a new composition and export the XML to Premiere and have a perfectly cut story. Although the act of getting to that stage is quite tricky when you only upload the audio from the interview and not the 2hours of 4k footage. - but possible. The features that I've used in my experience are game changing, and whether your using this for video editing with stories like I am, or for Podcasts; its really second to none. You can very easily navigate, copy, highlight, collaborate, leave notes, remove words like " um / uh " from the entire piece, remove dead space. If your thinking about using it, I highly recommend trying for your next project and seeing if it fits into your workflow, or grows to enhance it.
Use this for transcribing podcasts and it is very user friendly. Can detect and label speakers easily. Minor errors in grammar and spelling.
