Video/Audio Language Capture Software now in Beta--Forgot the name
January 13, 2018 8:10 AM   Subscribe

Have you heard of a language-capture software in beta that captures speech from recorded video/audio and works backwards to allow for text-based editing--recently described on a big podcast at the end of last year (D-something)?

Over the holidays I heard a podcast with a former CEO of Not sure which tech platform who's started a software company pioneering video/audio editing via text. (I.e., via line edits in a transcript.) Maybe the bigger picture is language capture software (my own term).

I would assume I'd made it up if it weren't for the fact that I visited the site in December. I seem to recall either the software or the company was named D-something.

I've searched all the podcasts the interview might have been on (Tim Ferriss, The Moment) but I'm not getting anywhere.

Is this ringing any bells? I was a fool not to become an early subscriber at the time and cannot find my way back to this.

Thanks for your help.

Response by poster: Thanks, AppleTurnover. I tried this but unfortunately had cleared my browser history at some point during the last month.

Best answer: Is it Descript?

I remember hearing a story about that as well. My guess is it was on Reply All (but my internet connection is being flaky and not letting me search their episodes).

Just after I posted I found the boingboing link:

Cool. I just did a Google news search for "video editing text podcast" and found an article about Descript from December and figured that had to be it.
