The authentication of recorded events is a common request of forensic audio examiners during the course of formal litigation. With the transition of recorded media moving away from analog cassette tapes, forensic scientists working in this field have had to work creatively to address new challenges. This workshop will not only present a historical overview of forensic tape authentication as it has been employed since the Watergate scandal, new and emerging techniques and methods will be presented for addressing challenges in the digital domain. Attendees of this workshop will expect to learn a general overview of audio authentication, the nowadays challenges facing forensic audio specialists, and the scientific developments in this field.
