With the proliferation of small digital recorders, cell phones, and video cameras that capture audio data, it is no wonder that audio evidence is an increasingly important part of today's investigations. Unfortunately there is no shortage of noisy, muffled, unintelligible audio that limits its usefulness. Do you have the knowledge and expertise to enhance audio evidence and present it in court?
Introduction to Forensic Audio Analysis will introduce the fundamentals of processing audio for clarification. This three-day hands-on workshop will cover speech and noise fundamentals, how to start with the "Best Evidence," and basic audio enhancement principles. Students will learn how to improve common audio recording issues with software tools like Audacity, iZotope RX 3 and Sound Forge 11. Attendees will also receive information on forensic audio reference resources as well as an overview of other enhancement tools currently available.
