Do you record and transmit the audio of interviews and witnesses?

Now, the VOX PROTECT plug-in, working on your sound or video editor, cannot send and transmit the original audio information automatically. In addition, the software does not send any information about the protection criteria chosen.

Therefore, the responsibility for preserving sensitive data remains with the software user.

Is there an obligation to protect the voice of witnesses?

It is a fact that today voice recognition has become a significant issue.

For example:

In France, the famous case of the Jérôme Cahuzac affair recognized by the BATVOX software clearly shows the critical issue of voice protection.

We specify here that several legal obligations in the world cover the protection of witnesses as an indication and are not exhaustive:



The full set of global recommendations can be found in the 2009 UN report, pages 8-16:

Why are the witnesses’ voices not protected by classic software?

Until now, all the proposed solutions do not protect the identification of witnesses.

For example, the most used solution, the “pitch” effect, is reversible. Moreover, this use has become obsolete and dangerous.

The same is true for all software that incorporates the effect reversal function in the digital era.

Are witness voices protected?

No: the software (plug-in) used to fake voices is entirely reversible.

Only VOX PROTECT offers a solution dedicated to this protection in plug-in format.

Why is it a problem if a witness' voice is not well protected?

In the digital age, the process of reversing a witness’ voice has become accessible to everyone.

-It is pretty easy to find all the interviews of witnesses broadcasted on TV, radio, and all media in digital quality online.

-It is easy to get a pitch on the internet, under a free license, and ready to use. The digital quality allows keeping an identical quality to the original by applying the reverse process and thus finding the voice of the witness in a perfect way.

With the digital air, the issue of voice recognition is essential for many services.

Therefore, It has become elementary to identify a person from an audio recording.

If you don’t apply for good witness voice protection, you may be putting your witness at risk.
