As Consumers Become Increasingly Concerned Over Privacy Violations, Offers a Tool That Allows Users to Search and Control Their Own Data Launches Keywords, a New Transcription Feature That Allows Users to Search for and Listen to Specific Content of Their Recorded Conference Calls

LONG BEACH, Calif. – July 10, 2013 – Long Beach, California - With consumers more concerned than ever about violations of privacy, announced a new feature today that enables customers to control their own data: Keywords. Keywords provides users with the opportunity to search spoken keywords within their recorded conference calls, just like they would search the internet, and then instantly replay those portions of the call while skipping the rest of the recording. The pro-consumer technology is being released amidst ongoing news reports about the questionable, unauthorized use of data from some of the biggest players in the technology industry to survey and track the public.

"With concerns about privacy at an all time high throughout the world,'s Keywords offers consumers a technology tool that puts them in control of their own data," said Dave Erickson, Founder of "With Keywords, the functionality is only in the hands of the consumer, allowing them to benefit from their own information instead of a third party."

Keywords works in conjunction with the free call-recording functionality of to analyze the audio during calls, and produces keywords that allow users to skip to relevant passages in calls. These extracted keywords and terms are emailed to the users immediately after the recorded call and then marked within the audio recordings so that the passages can be made fully searchable. Users can be assured of their privacy; the fully-automated service is launched only when a user opts-in to enable the Keywords Speech Indexing and Knowledge Processing technology.
