Audiate Overview

Audiate uses text-based audio editing to make it easy for anyone to edit audio and saves professionals tons of time.

  • Record or import audio and get an immediate transcription.
  • Quickly find mistakes and edit like a pro with text-based editing.
  • Polish with professional audio effects and waveform editing.

1. Transcribe Your Audio

Audiate transcribes audio into words and phrases that you can edit like any text document. It works with imported files, recordings made in Audiate, or audio synced from a Camtasia video project.

Tip: Select your target language.

For best results, make sure to set your target language. Select Settings > Language and select the language from the list.

2. Edit Audio Narration and Mistakes

Clean up your narration to create smooth, professional clips.

  • Audiate automatically recognizes hesitations, such as “umms” or “ahhs” and pauses in speech. Use the Suggested Edits options to automatically apply the recommended edits to these hesitations and pauses.
