Go to Global Transcription to search for the transcribed calls.

search

To search for a transcriptions we will be sending a query to the server which will then based upon your search criteria return results with a score, we can use search modifiers to help us accomplish this.

Search Modifiers

Search modifications allow you to describe what you want to find. There is a specific syntax to help you with this.

Query Type Example Example Matches Description
Wildcard c*t cat
count
cut
context
compact
When looking for alternative spellings and variations of a root word, wildcards are used. Used in place of multiple characters ℹ️: Wildcard characters cannot be used in place of a word's first letter or within an exact phrase search.
Placeholder c?t cat
cut
cot
Used in place of single characters
Fuzzy Searches ~colr colour
color
colt
caller
A fuzzy search looks for text that closely, rather than precisely, matches a keyword. Even if your search terms are mistyped, fuzzy searches can still help you find relevant results. Put a tilde (~) at the end of the search term to execute a fuzzy search. ⚠️ Please do not use Wildcards and Fuzzy searches together: Fuzzy and wildcard operators cannot be combined and used. One of the operators is not used when the two are combined. For instance, for fuzzy, you can simply say "query": "rich~1"
Boolean Expressions +apples red -green apples must be included, red is optional, green must be absent Boolean operators are used as conjunctions to combine or exclude keywords in a search. These operators link your search terms together to either increase or decrease the number of results you receive.
Alt. Boolean Expressions (fox OR cat) AND NOT fast either fox or cat must be included, fast must be absent ℹ️: The well-known boolean operators AND (&&), OR (||), and NOT(!) are also available.However, when many operators are used together, parenthesis should be used. As they do not follow the standard procedure rules.
Regular Expression +[1-9][0-9]{10,13} matching a phone number It is a language to conduct pattern matches. To find out more click here
Proximity Search red brick house red house of brick or house made of red brick A proximity query allows the provided words to be spaced further apart or in a different order. To start a proximity search use the tilde (~) symbol at the end of a phrase and specify the distance in words as a valid integer number.
Boosting fast^10 racing^20 car the racing car went very fast Car would match, but having racing and fast in the document means that its score would be boosted by 30

Lemmentization

Our built-in search engine offers lemmentization.

Lemmatization is the grouping together of different forms of the same word. It enables end users to use any variation of a base word in search queries.

It helps in receiving appropriate results.

For example,

  1. runs, running, ran are all forms of the word run
  2. builds, building or built are all forms of the word build

Ad-hoc Queries

To view existing transcriptions, you can enter * and choose the required date range, and it will return all the results.

You can further refine your search using query Search Modifiers

Saved Queries

Saved queries allows you to build a query which you can reuse.

The Transcription Query Profile enables you to construct a query list and save it.

You can search the created query list for the calls that have been transcribed.

Score

Whilst searching the relevence of a document will be rated and a score will be assigned, this helps return the documents which best match the search criteria.

Transcription

Click on View Transcription to view the full transcribed call.

NOTE: 1. Transcription will be performed only for the recorded calls.

Visibility

Visibility is a privacy setting which allows you to decide if you want your customers to be able to see (and use) the query which you have saved. Public will allow your customers to see this, Private will keep it hidden from them.

You should choose Customer Name as None and Visibility as Public if you want every one of your customers to see the list.

Transcription Alerts

You can navigate to a specific customer's account and add a Saved Query as alert.

You will either recieve a call or text or e-mail saying a particular word or phrase has been detected for a specific call.
