Captricity for document redaction

May 25, 2012 by Andrea Spillmann

Several customers have asked us whether it's possible to use Captricity's auto-magical document redaction feature as a standalone service -- you sure can!

Let's say you want to publish a collection of Section 527 tax forms, which are freely available from the IRS. As a courtesy, you want to redact the EIN number from each form.  Using the core of Captricity's computer vision technology , which recognizes and crops boxed regions you specify on a page, you can specify a region as "redacted" once, and have Captricity take care of the redaction for all forms of the same type.

Here's how:

  1. Upload a blank version of the form to use as your template.
  2. Draw boxes around the fields you want redacted, and click "Black this Out" (see below).
  3. Define at least one other non-redacted field on the page (it can be as simple as a page or form number).
  4. Submit the job.

Black out the fields of your choice

On the Job results page, you can click each row (on the filename) and download the redacted image.
