Court Reporter in San Marcos, 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 certified
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 San Marcos, Texas?
Certified court reporters aside, two of the most commonly requested human resources we provide are interpreters and legal videographers.
Being able to find certified
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 certified
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!
