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 knowledgeable
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?
For more than twenty years, the core of our business has been providing law firms and corporate legal departments with experienced, certified court reporters. As one of the pre-eminent national court reporting agencies in the country, we arrange for some of the best court reporters in the U.S. to work on your behalf, providing you with accurate, easily accessible transcripts of depositions, court appearances, and other types of legal hearings.
Need a Legal Videographer in TX?
Meanwhile, the need for experienced, knowledgeable
interpreters has arguably never been higher. That’s because many parties to lawsuits—especially in major metropolitan areas—don’t speak English as a first language. But if you’re a lawyer or paralegal, you know that finding a knowledgeable
interpreter in a timely fashion can be a monumental challenge, particularly if a less common language or dialect is involved. Yet we believe that any national court reporting agency worth its salt should be capable of removing language barriers. That’s why we take pride in supplying interpreters for most any language you’re likely to encounter in the continental U.S.
That means we can arrange for interpreting services for well over a hundred different languages and dialects, including commonly spoken languages like Spanish, German, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese, Chinese, Russian, French, and Arabic. We can also provide an interpreter for languages that are less commonly heard here in America, as well as sign language services for the hearing impaired. Basically, anything short of an obscure invented language like Esperanto and we can probably help.
Need a Video Conferencing Solution in Hopkins County, TX?
As for those instances when it’s not practical to have everyone physically present in the same room for a deposition, we offer sophisticated video conferencing solutions. With video conferencing, you can eliminate airfare, lodging costs, rental car costs, and other expenses, and also avoid the hassle of assembling all of the parties in one room. We have access to hundreds of locations around the country so scheduling a video conference that meets your needs is a straightforward process, whether you need a single-site solution or multi-site solution.
One phone call is all it takes to get us started on making the arrangements. We’ll provide options for locations, work out the logistics, supply the audio-visual equipment, test the equipment, and link two or more locations. We always use state-of-the-art gear with HD video, and our equipment is compatible with all laptops, desktops, tablets, and smartphones. As you’d expect, our conference rooms come fully furnished and have high-speed Internet, as well as all the amenities and conveniences you would expect.
We also provide technical support during the deposition or hearing so that you can concentrate on advocating for your client. You never have to worry about disconnects or other technical issues.
Need Easy Access to Transcripts in TX?
Of course, a lawyer’s day doesn’t end when a deposition or other legal hearing is completed. The attorney who can stay organized and quickly access all necessary information can save energy for doing what he or she does best.
That’s why a national court reporting firm that can supply instant access to the documents you need is invaluable. We provide you with online and mobile access to everything related to your case, including a personal online calendar, case transcripts, exhibits and schedules, and account info and invoices. Our secure online case management system allows you—and those attorneys, paralegals, and legal secretaries you designate—to access any materials you need, twenty-four hours a day.
In case you’re wondering, all documents are indexed for easy identification. You can use our system to search for documents, download exhibits, print materials, and even export deposition text.
Need physical copies of case documents or transcripts? As an added convenience, we also provide traditional imaging and copying services.
Questions? Your Case Manager Can Help
Last but not least, it may be helpful to know that each of our clients is assigned a dedicated case manager, one who will work with you and ensure that you receive superior service. The case manager’s responsibilities include: coordinating your deposition schedule, assigning court reporters and interpreters, and addressing any issues that may arise.
When you use us for your deposition or other legal proceeding, you also have access to technical assistance from our tech team. Our technical staffers—available day and night—work with you to guide you through our online system and answer any questions 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 whenever you’re ready. We’re one of the most respected national court reporting firms in the country, and you can rely on us to meet the needs of your law firm or corporate legal department.
