Eddy by Headliner is an easy way to edit your podcast through the power of transcription. If you’d like a visual way of editing your podcast, it’s as easy as uploading your audio onto Eddy.
Step 1: Uploading audio
From the Eddy dashboard, click the upload button to import your footage onto the site. You may also drag and drop your file.
Once uploaded, your audio will be processed and transcribed. This process automatically separates speakers in your transcript and typically takes about ⅓ of the total length of your audio.
Step 2: Edit your audio
After your audio has been processed, you will automatically be taken to the editor where you can make adjustments to your file. In order to remove a section from your episode, all you will have to do is highlight the text as if you’re using a word processor and hit the backspace button on your keyboard. Highlighted text will appear as blue in your browser and will be stricken from playback after you’ve hit backspace or the delete button.
If you would like to reintroduce a deleted section of text from your episode, you can do so by re-highlighting that section and by clicking the undo button that will appear above that selection.
In order to correct a mis-transcribed section of your file, highlight the text in question and click on the compose button on the prompt above your text. You’ll then be able to adjust your text and update the transcript accordingly.
The same can also be done to speakers in your file, which can also be toggled to apply to every instance of that speaker being tagged in your episode.
Step 3: Exporting
When you’re done editing your episode, you’ll then need to export it. You can do this by clicking on the Export button on the top right of the screen and selecting the type of file you would like to download. We currently support audio (mp3) and document (docx) exports, as well as transcript files (VTT/SRT).
And there you have it! Using Eddy is really that simple. With it, you’ll be able to recut your audio into high-quality podcast episodes in no time!
