What is Audio Forensics and why and how can it be used?
Audio forensics is the field of forensic science relating to the acquisition, analysis, and evaluation of sound recordings that may ultimately be presented as admissible evidence in a court of law or some other official venue.
In other words, Audio Forensics is the scientific analysis (and processing) of audio sources. The Why-question can be answered by describing the services that Traxtudio Audio Forensics renders:

1. Authentication of the audio evidence
Mainly Audio Forensics centres around the enhancement of audio clarity from the original audio source (to improve speech intelligibility and the audibility of the low-levels sounds). This process includes inter alia filtering of unwanted sounds and the identification and elimination of known and unknown exemplars from recordings – usually for investigative purposes (as previously mentioned in our definition).

2. Interpreting and documenting sonic evidence (Audio Forensic Transcription)
A forensic transcript is a complete and accurate documentation of the words spoken in an evidence recording. Once the authenticity has been established all evidence are professionally documented. This process includes Transcribing dialog.

3. Pre-trial preparation and presenting the report (investigative guidance).
In conjunction with our Media and Entertainment Attorney Practise, we can assist attorneys, government agencies and courts with pre-trail preparation and presenting the report (investigative guidance).

What are typical examples of audio sources?
Audio and video evidence can be found at more locations and from more diverse sources than ever before. From malls to restaurants, banks, - CCTV systems are virtually everywhere. Cell phone cameras extend a watchful eye to nearly every corner. Audio evidence may be available from call-centre calls, telephone answering machines, voicemail recordings, video cameras, cell phones and computer files. Other sources may include courtroom recordings, confidential informant, wire recordings.
