Intelligent Profanity Filter

Profanity FilterCleanSpeak is the most sophisticated real-time profanity filter on the market. Besides filtering profanity, CleanSpeak can also filter obscenities, ascii art, emails, URLs, phone numbers and much more. Since CleanSpeak understands language, it can filter all conjugations and inflections without manually entering each one.

CleanSpeak’s profanity filter will intelligently recognize complex combinations of the above variations. For example: “big$mmmmm/rpher” (embedded word, character replacement, repeated characters, leet speak, phonetic replacement, and different part of speech) is automatically recognized and blocked from the single root entry of “smurf”. As you can see, one single entry can have infinite impact with the power of CleanSpeak.
