The Importance of Transcription, Translation, and Captioning for Accessibility Compliance
In today’s piece, we’ll be discussing legal requirements for demonstrating accessibility on your organization’s website, what accessibility is, why accessibility is important, and how you can create accessible media content with CaseGuard.
Set Your Sights on Washington State
Washington State will be implementing the new Washington Privacy Act (WPA) which was recently released for the public. Washington has not only met the standards provided by the CCPA but has upped the ante for all future privacy legislation to come. The bill is so comprehensive that it may lead as an example for more upcoming changes in proposed federal legislation, and other state legislations across the country.

Audio Resampling | Protecting Sensitive Information & Identities
Protecting sensitive information and identities is a core operation when redacting files. It can be difficult when you face audio content. On the one hand, audio needs to be heard clearly for a jury to understand what is transpiring. On the other, we may be dealing with a protected witness, an undercover officer, or some information that is critical to future prosecutions that can’t be revealed in the moment.
Automatic Audio Redaction
For law enforcement agencies, things like driver’s license numbers, names, dates of birth, addresses, phone numbers, social security numbers, and other personal identification information (PII) are just a few pieces of information that need to be redacted in order to satisfy a FOIA request.
Video Analytics & Audio Analysis
Video files keep tripping us up but audio files present even more problems. Factor in background noise, external and internal interference, environmental noise, movement, and soon both types of files, and even both types combined, present unimaginable problems that now become your responsibility to solve.
Live Captioning | Ensuring Communications for Appropriate Response
Agencies are routinely tasked with creating content to address public affairs, usually in the scope of responding to problem the community at large is encountering. In those scenarios, agencies must create responses that can be used in multiple media channels.
Converting Audio to Different Languages
One of the biggest problems in translating audio and video files is finding smart software that can make conversion beyond one language. Usually you can find software that is dedicated to two languages, say English and Spanish, and then you have to find another software product for additional languages as needed. CaseGuard currently offers 13 languages for transcription and 21 languages for translation.
