Pattern Redaction

After transcribing audio, CaseGuard is able to mine data for insight. It’s able to detect named entities in the text such as people and locations, as well as patterns like emails, social security numbers, zip code, or credit card numbers.

You can filter by named entity patterns (i.e., social security numbers, credit card numbers, phone numbers, etc.) to quickly locate and remove confidential information.

Prepare for the redaction process

  1. Open the file in CaseGuard Studio.
  2. Transcribe Your Audio. A transcript will appear in the Transcription Panel.
  3. Review and Identify the type of information that needs to be redacted (i.e., social security numbers, credit card numbers, phone numbers, etc.)

Getting started

Now that you’ve transcribed your file, your transcript should appear within the Transcription Panel. You have a few ways you can start redacting your audio.

  • Redact ALL of your filtered search results with one click.
