Digital audio voice recorders are frequently used to record and produce audio for use as evidence. Often times the audio signal can be poor quality causing intelligibility issues within the recorded dialog. A forensic audio expert is consulted and retained for the analysis and enhancement of the recording.
This process is known as Digital Voice Recorder Enhancement and it improves the intelligibility of the recorded dialog offered as evidence. Dialog enhancement and Noise reduction are the focus of our Forensic Audio Enhancement. Forensic Audio Enhancement can help improve the intelligibility of recorded dialog used as evidence.
Many times recorded evidence is produced in such a way that microphone proximity issues result in intelligibility problems and this can be very hard to hear and to transcribe accurately. The intelligibility of dialog, recorded as evidence on a digital recorder that is to be presented in a judicial hearing can make or break a case. Transcription of poor quality or noisy audio is very difficult for many reasons and results in limited accuracy.
The transcription expert when confronted with noise levels that are greater than the content of the dialog can render many areas as [inaudible]. Our lab is equipped with some of today's most powerful software like iZotope RX 4 Advanced, Ozone 6 Advanced as well as sophisticated hardware for enhancing audio recordings and ultimately improving audibility and intelligibility
