Court Reporter in Terrell Hills, 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.

interpreters, we also provide:
- Videoconferencing Solutions
