Audio Resampling | Protecting Sensitive Information & Identities

By: CaseGuard

  Redacting documents can be a total time hazard. Reading line by line, comparing notes that a supervisor provided to the document they want redacted, and then trying to keep all that in rhythm while applying redaction, all leads to mistakes, missed redactions, and ultimately more work as the records requests pile up, and previous work returns to your desk for correction.

Live Captioning | Ensuring Communications for Appropriate Response

By: CaseGuard

  There are times where audio and video files don’t need redaction, or tagging, or enhancements. They only need captioning. But captioning has been a very difficult task up to this point. First, you’d have to play a section of a file, write down what you heard, rewind the file, insert a text box, and type what you wrote. When you’re done, you’d have to go all the way back to the beginning, ensure...
