How to remove filler words from your video

Say goodbye to your excess 'ums' and 'uhs.' ✂️

⚠️ Please note: Filler word removal is only available on Loom's Business and Enterprise plans. ⚠️

Filler word removal makes it possible to review your transcript and delete any unnecessary 'ums' and 'uhs.' You can remove filler words from any video of yours that has a transcript, including old videos.

Here's how to remove your filler words:

  1. After you've recorded your video, click Review transcript. You'll see your detected filler words at the top of your transcript.

  2. Click Remove and choose between Text only, Text and audio, or Do not remove. After you've selected what you want to remove, your filler words will be highlighted and deleted.

Setting filler word removal as default

You can click Make this my default setting after selecting a new filler word removal option from the Filler word removal dropdown. Unless you turn this setting on, your filler word removal will be set to Do not remove. If you make the setting your default, all new videos you record going forward will be created with the selected default filler word removal setting.

In order to change this setting, you'll need to go back into a transcript and change it.


What's the difference between removing text only and text and audio?

Removing text only will remove the filler words just from your transcript and closed captions, whereas text and audio will remove the words and mute their audio.

Does removing text and audio work no matter where I play or host a video?
Not always. If you select to remove text and audio, the audio will only be removed when you're playing the video in the web player. In some situations your video's viewers may still hear the audio for filler words. Such cases where audio removal is not supported are on Safari, when looms are downloaded, and on mobile (browsers and the app).
