Court Reporter in Windcrest, TX | Texas
If you’re an attorney, a paralegal, or otherwise employed by a law firm there has probably been a time when you asked: “Should I hire a court reporter?” Or perhaps you asked yourself, “What should I look for in an agency that can provide my firm with court reporters”?
They may not always be fully appreciated, but court reporters have a demanding job. Their work might seem straightforward, but recording depositions and other proceedings verbatim require a lot of skill and experience.
For one, court reporters must be excellent listeners, able to concentrate for long stretches of time, which is a real gift in the limited-attention-span-world we live in today. They must also possess excellent attention to detail because providing accurate transcripts of depositions and other legal proceedings is decidedly detail-oriented work. They also need a solid grasp of legal terminology and other terminology of a technical nature. They must possess amazing
spelling, grammar, punctuation and vocabulary skills, and also be able to communicate effectively—both orally and in writing. Of course, speed is of the essence, too, and the ability to process 225 words per minute is pretty much par for the course. It almost goes without saying, but a court reporter must also be precise
, and flexible, and not at all intimidated by the proceedings taking place. After all, there are occasions when a court reporter has to interrupt a deposition or other hearing to ask a speaker to clarify an inaudible statement, which brings to mind another trait that is required of certified court reporters: excellent hearing.
As for the way in which twenty-first-century court reporters get their work done, stenography is still commonplace. That is, the court reporter records all statements using a phonetic code, with each line of characters representing a sound or syllable. The court reporter then translates the recorded information into a written transcript.
Another common process is Real-time reporting, where the court reporter’s output is delivered to a computer and the text displayed on the computer screen. (This is sometimes referred to as CART, an acronym for Communications Access Real-time Translation.)
In fact, Real-time reporting is one of the services we frequently provide to our clients, along with all of the following:
- Certified Court Reporters
- Legal Videographers
- Legal Videoconferencing
- Streaming Depositions
- Post-Production Services
- Video Conversion

As for our services, the three most requested solutions we provide—aside from certified court reporters—are:
Need an Interpreter for a deposition in Windcrest, Texas?
One of the best reasons to consider a national court reporting agency is that it can generally
provide many complimentary services—competent
interpreters, for instance. As you know, many parties to lawsuits and other legal proceedings don’t speak English as a first language—or even a second or third language.
If you’re a lawyer or paralegals this can be a frustrating challenge, as it’s not always easy to find an interpreter who capable of providing interpretation services within the required time frame, particularly if you need someone in a city other than your own.
That’s why we’ve long made it a priority to remove any and all language barriers for our clients and why we take pride in supplying both licensed court reporters and competent
More specifically, we can arrange for interpreting services for upwards of 140 different languages, including Spanish, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, Japanese, Russian, and Arabic. Have a need for an interpreter who speaks a much less common language? Anything short of an invented language like Esperanto or Klingonese (the latter is spoken by Klingons in the fictional Star Trek universe, and believe it or not, some people do speak Klingon) we can probably help.
Need a Legal Videographer in Windcrest, TX?
Meanwhile, our other commonly requested “people solution” concerns legal videographers. Of course, video remains an especially powerful tool in the legal environment and figures to remain so for the foreseeable future. Hence it’s not a good idea to trust your A/V needs to someone utilizing nothing more than a cell phone and a tripod. You want a professional who has been trained to record in a legal setting, one who understands the importance of lighting, sound, and camera position, and one who utilizes the kind of state-of-the-art equipment that can capture the video and audio quality you need to succeed.
That’s why we work with veteran legal videographers who are capable of capturing the most telling visual details, including negative body language and revealing facial expressions. Over the years we’ve learned that a single nuance captured on video has the potential to make or break a settlement negotiation or be a difference-maker in the courtroom.
That’s why we also work with the most talented and experienced video editors, who are there to handle all of your post-production needs, including linear editing, nonlinear editing, audio & video duplication, audio & video conversion, and image enhancement.
Need a Video Conferencing Solution in Bexar County, TX?
An oft-overlooked capability of a national court reporting agency like ours is the ability to provide professional legal videographers who document legal proceedings using state-of-the-art A/V equipment, which helps to ensure that our demanding clients always get the footage they need. Our clients appreciate our desire to consistently capture important visual details—like positive or negative body language and revealing gestures & facial expressions. After all, a single nuance captured on video can make all the difference to the outcome of a case. Our video editors also play a critical role in the process, providing clients with the following services:
- Linear Editing
- Non-Linear Editing
- Audio and Video Duplication
- Audio and Video Conversion
- Post-Production Services
- Image Enhancement
Don’t make the mistake of thinking that anyone with a mobile phone or smartphone can record the audio and video for your deposition or other legal proceeding. Better to employ seasoned professionals who have been trained to film in a legal environment, pros who make a habit of obsessing over the details that help get you the recordings you want and need.
