Riverside's text-based editing lets you remove a section from your recording using the transcription of the conversation that Riverside generates automatically.


Step by step

  1. On a computer, log in to your Riverside account.
  2. In the ☰ menu on the left, click the relevant Studio.
  3. Click the relevant recording.
  4. In the top right corner, click Edit and choose + Create new edit.
    Or scroll to Edits and click a Draft or magic-spark-icon.svg Magic Clip.
  1. Above the timeline, click transcript_icon_bk.svg Transcript.
  2. Click a word at the desired section start-point.
  3. Above the timeline, click split-timeline-20x20.svg Split.
  4. Click a word at the desired section end-point, then click split-timeline-20x20.svg Split.
  5. Above the timeline, click delete-remove_trash.svg Remove or drag the trimming handles to remove the section.

Phrases and sections you remove are shown in grey. They do not appear in search results but are still included in the downloadable transcript file.

If multiple participants spoke at the same time, you may still see their words in the transcript after you have removed that section from the recording. Where there is cross-talk like this, anything you cut out of the recording removes it for all participants.
