Audio files are becoming an increasingly important source of evidence in e-discovery as call centers and corporations now routinely capture terabytes of audio data. But unlike most traditional electronically stored information (ESI) sources, like office documents and e-mail, reviewing audio files has proven to be challenging and time consuming, until now.

Ringtail’s Audio Discovery service gives you the power to transform audio files into reviewable, redactable, and searchable files that can be analyzed and produced alongside all case documents in Ringtail.

Audio processed and converted
Recent additions made to the 2006 Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and The Dodd-Frank Act categorize audio data as any other ESI subject to discovery. Our Ringtail Audio Discovery service helps you better understand audio data, quickly discover critical information and facilitate a comprehensive review.

Advanced voice recognition technology identifies unique speaker voice patterns and allows you to search for files matching that speaker’s pattern. The unique speaker can also be tagged within transcripts to create a clear visual interpretation of the conversation.

Cull for Keywords and Metadata

Leveraging Ringtail Audio Discovery’s phonetic and text based searching algorithm, you can search spoken words and phrases to quickly identify the audio files of greatest importance and relevancy. If you have additional metadata preserved, it can be imported into the system and made available for further filtering and organizing within the audio files.

Analyze Foreign Language Audio

Read along while listening

Ringtail Audio Discovery supports the indexing of the audio data in more than 21 foreign languages including Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and a variety of accents such as US English and British English. In addition, it can apply custom acoustic training models to fine tune and improve the quality of the indexes and improve the search results.

Redact Audio and Transcripts

Just as you would redact other native data types such as emails and edocs, you can also redact audio files. Ringtail Audio allows you to create multiple redaction sets, produce native audio files with redaction applied for all or selected sets and create matching text transcripts.

Export Transcripts
