Court Reporter in 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 experienced
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 Texas?
One of the benefits of working with a national court reporting agency like ours is that we have relationships with a deep roster of interpreters covering more than a hundred languages. As you probably know, the parties to lawsuits and other legal proceedings often don’t speak English—at least not as a first language. If you’re an attorney or paralegal you don’t want to spend your time and energy searching for a experienced
interpreter, especially if you’re dealing with a less ordinarily
spoken language or dialect. Better to leave it to us to retain an interpreter who can provide the services you need.
Securing interpreters for depositions and other legal proceedings is all part of our ongoing effort to meet our clients’ litigation support needs. For many years we have maintained that delivering a comprehensive court reporting service means removing any and all language barriers. What are some of the languages for which we can provide interpreters? Mandarin, Spanish, German, Portuguese, Japanese, Russian and Arabic are just a few of the examples. And our interpreters are always ready to provide real-time translation of attorneys’ questions, in addition to the translation of documents during discovery.
So whether you need an interpreter for a local case, an international deposition, or an administrative hearing, we should be your first call.
Need a Legal Videographer in TX?
Alternatively, if you’re conducting an in-person deposition it’s now common to employ a professional legal videographer to document the proceedings, as video and multi-media presentations are now pretty much expected by all parties during litigation proceedings.
Our experienced videographers utilize top-of-the-line lighting and sound equipment to help ensure that you always get the footage you need. Our talented video editors provide no-less-valuable services, including media enhancement, linear editing, nonlinear editing, video duplication, and video conversion.
Don’t make the mistake of thinking that anyone with a smartphone can record the video for your deposition or hearing. As long as you’re hiring a experienced
court reporter why not add a professional legal videographer who has extensive experience filming in a legal setting? It could be the difference-maker in terms of achieving a positive outcome for your client.
Need a Video Conferencing Solution in Gillespie County, TX?
Finally, another frequent need among our clientele is a video conferencing solution. As you know, it’s not always possible or practical to have everyone physically present in the same location for a deposition. That’s why we have made it a priority to be able to provide our clients with top quality video conferencing solutions, which allow you to take depositions remotely while still getting the kind of results you would in person.
In other words, thanks to the latest in video conferencing technology you no longer need to be limited by geographic boundaries—or feel the pressure to travel to a remote location. Veteran trial attorneys know that getting on an airplane to fly to a deposition can be time-consuming, not to mention a big added expense for budget-conscious clients. With a video conferencing solution, you can reduce or eliminate travel costs and cut back on other expenses, and save your paralegal the aggravation of coordinating a deposition in a remote locale.
Better yet, it’s no more trouble to arrange a multi-site video conference than a single-site video conference. Our loyal clients know that we have access to hundreds of locations across the country and that our trained specialists excel at coordinating even the most complicated logistics. Further peace of mind comes from the fact that we provide a detailed outline of what you can expect from us.
We take care of the video conference setup, which includes selecting the location(s), working out the logistics, supplying and testing all urgent equipment, ensuring Internet access, and linking two or more locations. We utilize state-of-the-art gear with hi-definition video and our equipment is compatible with all laptops, desktops, tablets, and smartphones. Our conference rooms come fully furnished and have high-speed Internet, plus large monitors and all the amenities you might expect.
Last but not least, we also provide technical support throughout the proceeding so that you can concentrate on doing the best job possible for your client, and don’t need to worry about any technical malfunctions.
All in all, we believe you’ll save time and money by using our video conferencing services for your next deposition. So give us a call and give video conferencing a try.
Need Easy Access to Transcripts in TX?
Finally, once the bulk of your work is done, your transcript and all materials related to your account can be accessed 24/7 in our secure online document repository. We provide you with online and mobile access to everything related to your case.
This includes transcripts, exhibits, schedules, invoices, and even a personal calendar. All of the docs are indexed for easy identification and you can use system to search for documents, download exhibits, print materials, and export deposition text. Need physical copies of case documents or transcripts? We provide traditional imaging and copying services as well.
And if you need help utilizing the document repository, you can always reach out to your dedicated case manager or a trusted member of our technical support team. In addition to coordinating your deposition schedule and assigning court reporters & interpreters, your case manager’s responsibilities include addressing any questions or concerns you may have.
So if you’re in need of a court reporter or any related services, don’t hesitate to give us a call at your earliest convenience. We’re one of the largest and most respected national court reporting agencies in the country, and you can rely on us to meet the needs of your law firm or corporate legal department.
