Court Reporter in Ferris, TX | Texas
For several years people have wondered whether technology is going to replace court reporters. It’s a worthwhile question and one that gets asked in many industries, not just the court reporting industry. But while relevant technologies—namely voice transcription—have come a long way in recent years, the technology isn’t even close to supplanting court reporters. As it turns out, when you’re in need of an accurate deposition transcript, there is still no substitute for human skill and attention to detail.
For one, automated digital recording technology has the potential to malfunction, which can result in fragmented or missing testimony in the absence of immediate human intervention. Second, transcribing conversation requires human judgment, particularly when multiple people attempt to speak at the same time. Third, voice transcription software fares rather poorly when a speaker has a strong accent, becomes emotional, speaks at a low volume, or speaks very rapidly. And believe us, you don’t need to speak anywhere near as fast as John Moschitta (remember him, from the “Fast Paced World” FederalExpress commercial from the 1980s?) for the recording to become garbled. Voice recognition technology also has a tendency to fail in rooms where there is background noise. And in a worst-case scenario, voice recognition software might even capture an off-the-record conversation and include it in the record, which would obviously disadvantage the affected party.
What has changed in recent years, though, is that the technology that supports court reporters has streamlined the process and made it much easier for lawyers to access and manipulate the materials they need. Of course, not every court reporting agency has the latest in state-of-the-art equipment and technology but many national court reporting firms—like ours—have everything you might want at an affordable price.
That is, we don’t merely provide certified court reporters and proficient
interpreters, we also provide:
- Videoconferencing Solutions
- RealTime Reporting
- Online Calendar
- Online Repository
- Video Conversion
- Streaming Depositions
- Post-Production Services
And with all of the above technology, we’re finding it easier than ever to meet the needs of our demanding clients, providing them with top quality transcripts of depositions and other legal proceedings. So whether you’re in New York, Chicago, Atlanta, or Los Angeles—or anywhere else in the United States—we should be your first call.
Need an Interpreter for a deposition in Ferris, Texas?
Certified court reporters aside, two of the most commonly requested human resources we provide are interpreters and legal videographers.
Being able to find proficient
interpreters is particularly important in this day and age, as many parties to legal matters come from diverse backgrounds and don’t necessarily speak English as a first language. As you probably know, this presents a daunting challenge for lawyers who want to make sure their clients’ voices are heard—and want to make sure that their clients fully understand the questions being asked of them during any given proceeding.
Yet it’s not necessarily easy for an attorney to find a proficient
interpreter via an Internet search, especially if your client’s first language is decidedly uncommon here in the United States.
But we believe that a critical component of delivering a comprehensive court reporting service means removing language barriers. So over the course of more than two decades we have developed a stable of talented interpreters for well over a hundred different languages. As a result, we can arrange for interpreting services for Spanish, German, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese, Swedish, Russian, French, Hindi, Mandarin or Arabic, among many others. While we might have to draw the line at providing an interpreter for an invented language, anything short of an Esperanto-to-English interpreter or Klingonese-to-English interpreter and we can probably help.
So whether you need an interpreter for a local arbitration hearing or a high-stakes international deposition, give us a call today!
Need a Legal Videographer in Ferris, TX?
The next most common request we get is for legal videographers. Our longtime clients recognize that it’s penny wise and pound foolish to try to record a legal hearing with a smartphone or a handheld camera mounted on a tripod. It’s much more effective to hire a professional who has been trained to film in a legal setting, someone who utilizes specialized equipment to obtain the best possible video and sound.
That’s why our legal videographers use top-of-the-line lighting and sound equipment, including high-gain microphones and multiple, high-definition cameras. The result is a polished video of your deposition or hearing, one that is synchronized with the reporter’s transcript.
If you require editing services, we can also offer the assistance of talented video editors, with post-production services that include linear editing, nonlinear editing, media enhancement, audio & video duplication, and audio & video conversion to other formats—DVD being a representative example.
Need a Video Conferencing Solution in Dallas County, TX?
Another technology we offer that you’ll almost certainly want to take advantage is Real-time software, which translates stenographic shorthand into English. With Real-time reporting, you can have a transcript delivered to your laptop in real time as the deposition or hearing is taking place. One of the big advantages of a real-time solution is that you can search, highlight, or annotate portions of the transcript as it is delivered, allowing you to use the information during the course of the proceedings. It’s a distinct advantage, particularly if the opposing party doesn’t have the resources to commission the use of this technology.
Secure Online Case Management
Finally, one other way in which technology can make a litigator’s life much easier is via an online document repository like the one we have developed for the use of our clients. Thanks to our platform you have online and mobile access to everything related to your case, including case transcripts and exhibits, plus schedules, account information, invoices, and a personal calendar.
In other words, our online case management system allows you—and those attorneys, paralegals, and legal secretaries you designate—to access any materials you need, 24/7. Of course, all documents are indexed for easy reference. So you can use our system to search for documents, download exhibits, print materials, and even export deposition text.
Questions? Our Technical Support Team Can Help
Of course, if you have any questions about any of the technology utilized in our solutions, our technical support team is available day and night to guide you through our systems and resolve any issues. A dedicated case manager is also assigned to your account and devoted to making sure that you receive superior service. Your case manager can also help to arrange decidedly old-fashioned services—like imaging and photo copying—or arrange for an interpreter to join a court reporter on an assignment.
Need Easy Access to Transcripts in Ferris, TX?
Technology has had a remarkable effect on legal proceedings by making organization a guiding principle of many attorneys during the deposition process. In fact, the attorney who can stay organized and quickly access the necessary information is often the one who ends up winning the case. As such, you may find yourself desiring access to case transcripts and documents at a moment’s notice. What you want right now is a court reporting service that can supply you with instant access to the documents you need for your deposition, arbitration hearing, or other legal proceeding. This means being able to view your case information with just one keystroke on a computer, an iPad, an iPhone, or any other mobile device connected to the internet.

We will provide you with full online and mobile access to everything regarding your case, including a personal online calendar, case transcripts, exhibits, scheduling, and billing account information and invoices. The online system allows you to view and downloaded anything you need 24/7. Additionally, our online case management system is secure so that only you and those you designate (other attorneys, paralegals, and legal secretaries) will have access to highly sensitive materials in your case.

You can use the online system to search for documents, download exhibits, print materials, and even export deposition text with just the click of a mouse.
