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 competent
interpreters, we also provide:

  • Videoconferencing Solutions
  • RealTime Reporting
  • LiveNote
  • E-Transcripts
  • Online Calendar
  • Online Repository
  • Video Conversion
  • Streaming Depositions
  • Dailies
  • Post-Production Services
  • More

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 competent
interpreter, especially if you’re dealing with a less intermittentlyspoken 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?

At the same time, more and more of our clients are enlisting our legal videographers to document legal proceedings. For most people, video remains the single-most powerful medium, particularly valuable when a legal matter reaches the courtroom and arguments are made in front of a judge or jury.

Our videographers employ state-of-the-art technology that can capture the most subtle visual details—including positive or negative body language and telling gestures or facial expressions. As we’re sure you know, a single nuance captured on video can make all the difference within the confines of a courtroom or judge’s chambers. That’s why our videographers use top-of-the-line lighting and sound equipment so that our clients always get the footage they need. We typically film using multiple, high-definition cameras in a digital format to provide you with polished audio and video. After the fact, our experienced editors provide other valuable services, including linear editing, nonlinear editing, media enhancement, and audio & video conversion and duplication.

Above all, don’t make the mistake of thinking that anyone with a cell phone camera can film your deposition. It’s best practice to employ professionals who have been trained to shoot videos in a legal setting—professionals who understand the importance of lighting and camera position and have access to the kind of specialized equipment that makes the difference between amateur-looking video and the work of a professional.

Need a Video Conferencing Solution in Uvalde County, TX?

Yet another of our most intermittentlyrequested solutions is video conferencing. On occasion, it’s not possible to have everyone physically present in the same location for a deposition. Whether it’s a matter of conflicting schedules or parties not living in the same metropolitan area, we are committed to helping you take a deposition remotely while still getting the results you would get from an in-person meeting. We offer video conferencing services that enable you to take depositions from anywhere in the country.

So don’t remain limited by geography. Traveling to a deposition can be expensive and time-consuming, but with video conferencing, you can reduce travel costs, lodging costs, and related expenses, while avoiding the hassle associated with assembling all interested parties.

Of course, if you need a room, we can provide a conference room (or rooms). Whether you’re in need of a single-site video conference or a multi-site video conference, we have access to hundreds of locations across the country, so scheduling a video conference that meets your needs is a straightforward process.

One phone call is all that’s vital
. We will set up the video conference, which includes finding the locations, working out the logistics, supplying the video and recording equipment, testing the gear, ensuring working Internet access, and linking all relevant locations. We utilize state-of-the-art equipment that provides high-definition video and the sharpest possible audio. Moreover, our conference room locations come fully furnished and feature all the amenities you expect, including a multi-line hands-free phone system.

Naturally, we also provide technical support during the proceedings so that you can concentrate on taking the deposition and representing your client to the best of your ability. Liberate yourself from worrying about technical issues by letting us handle the video conferencing for your next deposition.

Need Easy Access to Transcripts in TX?

Then, after your deposition is over, you and your support staff can utilize our secure online case management system, which provides you with online and mobile access to everything regarding your case, including transcripts, exhibits, account information and invoices. The online system also allows you—and those attorneys, paralegals, and legal secretaries you designate—to view and download any documents you need twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. If you need physical copies of case documents or transcripts, we provide traditional imaging and copying services as well.

A Dedicated Case Manager is an Added Value

Last but not least, when you use us for your deposition, you will receive personal technical assistance from a dedicated case manager and members of our technical support team. Our support team is available day and night to help you with our online case management system and to answer any questions you may have.

So call us today to get one of the most respected and technologically-advanced court reporting agencies working for you and your fellow attorneys.

We appreciate your business and will work hard to show it every day.
