Annotated Text Redaction
What is Annotated Text Redaction?
e-Redact allows users to quickly and easily remove sensitive information from a paper-based or electronic file using text redaction. Text redaction is used when original information must be redacted from a document but an explanatory ad-hoc note may be helpful in describing why the information has been removed.
A good example of this may be the removal of an address from a letter as it may be a ‘Safe House’ used for protecting witnesses.
How do Annotated Text Redactions Work?
The text redaction tool can be configured to any format but ordinarily the user would simply draw a box over the top of the sensitive content to remove it from the document.
e-Redact then allows the user to enter notes explaining why the content has been removed (i.e. Address of safe house removed).
Annotated Text Redactions function like a virtual Post-It™ note that can be included in any source file to quickly and easily remove content or simply add explanatory notes to a file.
Why use Manual Redaction?
