Court Reporter in Pattison, 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 experienced
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 Pattison, Texas?
Certified court reporters aside, two of the most commonly requested human resources we provide are interpreters and legal videographers.
Being able to find experienced
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 experienced
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!
Need a Legal Videographer in Pattison, TX?
The next most common request we get is for legal videographers. Our longtime clients recognize that it’s penny wise and pound foolish to try to record a legal hearing with a smartphone or a handheld camera mounted on a tripod. It’s much more effective to hire a professional who has been trained to film in a legal setting, someone who utilizes specialized equipment to obtain the best possible video and sound.
That’s why our legal videographers use top-of-the-line lighting and sound equipment, including high-gain microphones and multiple, high-definition cameras. The result is a polished video of your deposition or hearing, one that is synchronized with the reporter’s transcript.
If you require editing services, we can also offer the assistance of talented video editors, with post-production services that include linear editing, nonlinear editing, media enhancement, audio & video duplication, and audio & video conversion to other formats—DVD being a representative example.
Need a Video Conferencing Solution in Waller County, TX?
Another technology we offer that you’ll almost certainly want to take advantage is Real-time software, which translates stenographic shorthand into English. With Real-time reporting, you can have a transcript delivered to your laptop in real time as the deposition or hearing is taking place. One of the big advantages of a real-time solution is that you can search, highlight, or annotate portions of the transcript as it is delivered, allowing you to use the information during the course of the proceedings. It’s a distinct advantage, particularly if the opposing party doesn’t have the resources to commission the use of this technology.
Secure Online Case Management
Finally, one other way in which technology can make a litigator’s life much easier is via an online document repository like the one we have developed for the use of our clients. Thanks to our platform you have online and mobile access to everything related to your case, including case transcripts and exhibits, plus schedules, account information, invoices, and a personal calendar.
In other words, our online case management system allows you—and those attorneys, paralegals, and legal secretaries you designate—to access any materials you need, 24/7. Of course, all documents are indexed for easy reference. So you can use our system to search for documents, download exhibits, print materials, and even export deposition text.
Questions? Our Technical Support Team Can Help
Of course, if you have any questions about any of the technology utilized in our solutions, our technical support team is available day and night to guide you through our systems and resolve any issues. A dedicated case manager is also assigned to your account and devoted to making sure that you receive superior service. Your case manager can also help to arrange decidedly old-fashioned services—like imaging and photo copying—or arrange for an interpreter to join a court reporter on an assignment.
Need Easy Access to Transcripts in Pattison, TX?
Of course, after your deposition or hearing is over you need your transcripts in a timely fashion—and you need to be able to access them quickly and effortlessly. Technology has had a transformative effect on the legal industry by making organization and efficiency a mission-critical aspect of running a successful law firm. Attorneys who stay organized and maximize their efficiency have a distinct advantage as compared to less organized opposing counsel. That’s why you want a resourceful court reporting service that can supply you with instant access to the documents you need. This includes being able to view materials with just a click of a mouse on a desktop or laptop—or a single swipe on a tablet or smartphone.
Know that if you choose us and utilize our secure online case management system we will provide you with online and mobile access to all materials related to your cases and account. This includes transcripts and exhibits, plus invoices, billing information, and an online calendar. In other words, our secure system allows you to view and download anything you need 24/7/365, with access to highly sensitive materials restricted to the attorneys, paralegals, and legal secretaries you designate to have access.
To help maximize efficiency, essential documents are indexed for easy identification and then logged into our searchable system, which also allows you to download exhibits, print materials, and even export deposition text. If you need physical copies of documents or transcripts, we also provide traditional imaging and copying services.
Moreover, when you use us for your depositions or hearings, you receive technical assistance from the dedicated members of our support team. Our experienced technicians are available day and night and will work with you to address your specific questions and needs.
A Dedicated Case Manager is the Icing on the Cake
As if that weren’t enough, we also provide each of our clients with a dedicated case manager who is there to ensure that everything proceeds smoothly and that you receive top quality customer service.
So if you want to get the most technologically advanced court reporting company in the U.S. working for you and your firm, give us a call today! We look forward to working with you and your fellow attorneys.
