Voice analysis software
ITVT’s Forensic Voice Stress Analyzer (FVSA) captures and immediately displays subjects’ spoken answers to questions on-screen. The FVSA displays each pattern in its own box to allow examiners/analysts to peruse it prior to accepting it on the final template. Each pattern/answer is recorded, which then can be played back at any time. This provides the examiner with not only a visual display but also audio playback. Language, age, physical impairment, and the influence of drugs or alcohol do not affect the outcome of FVSA tests.

Records management system
Smead Manufacturing Company announces its flagship software product, a records management system (RMS) developed by its software division, SmeadSoft. SmeadSoft RMS Server streamlines the management of all types of records—paper, electronic, and multimedia—within a single system. The software ensures records integrity and mitigates compliance risks with secure workflow, audit trail, chain of custody, and reporting features. Government agencies are legally bound to maintain paper and physical records, so the “paperless office” promoted by many enterprise content management (ECM) vendors leaves such agencies vulnerable to compliance issues.
