The words in the speech can be muted without changing the duration of the voiceover using this function. The muted section is replaced with a pause. Here's how you can do it :
- The transcribed audio will be displayed as text in the workspace. Select the word that you want to mute.
- Right-click on it and select 'Mute Audio'. This will make the word appear transparent in the text block.
- Now click on the circular arrow to generate audio, and the word will be muted in the audio.
Trimming the audio will mute the words in the speech and cut the duration of the voiceover relatively. Here's how you do it:
- The transcribed audio will be displayed as text in the workspace. Select the word or phrase that you want to trim.
- Right-click on it and select 'Trim Audio only'. The words will be stricken out in the text block and trimmed in the audio.
Note: The mute and trim audio can be undone by right-clicking on those words and selecting' Undo trims'.
The Studio can repeat the soundtrack within the text block. In other words, the soundtrack can be played in a loop. This will be useful in instances where the duration of the text block exceeds the duration of the soundtrack.
