FTR QuickDraft

The power of audio and text together.

Created specifically for the justice system, FTR QuickDraft bridges the gap between audio capture and certified transcript production via natural language processing artificial intelligence (AI).  

To increase the accessibility and searchability of official court recordings, this tool syncs time-stamped audio and video with a highly accurate (up to 95%), speaker-designated (up to 100% accurate) speech-to-text output.

Decades of digital court recording experience, plus patented and proprietary audio processing algorithms, form the foundation of FTR QuickDraft. This dynamic technology has the ability to process dialects, accents, languages, and complex legal terminology. 

Highly accurate rough draft transcripts unlock insights previously inaccessible in the vast amount of information embedded in recorded audio and video files captured by FTR Gold.

In circumstances where certified transcripts are required, FTR QuickDraft is a tool that court reporters and transcribers can leverage, ultimately expediting the production process. 

Powered by FTR Justice Cloud, FTR QuickDraft is enhanced functionality for justice administration.
