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 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 Texas?
More and more, our clients are looking for the services of both a court reporter and interpreter. Many parties to lawsuits—especially in major cities—hail from a wide variety of places and don’t speak English.
As we’re sure you know, this can pose a problem for lawyers and paralegals alike, as it’s not always easy to find an interpreter who is capable of providing interpretation services within the required time frame, particularly if it’s a less common language or dialect. In some instances, you might need a court reporter who can provide interpretation services in multiple languages.
We believe that any national court reporting firm worth its salt should be able to remove any and all language barriers. That’s why we take pride in supplying licensed court reporters and interpreters for most any language or dialect you’re likely to encounter in the United States.
That is, we can arrange for interpreting services for upwards of 140 different languages and dialects, including Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, Japanese, Chinese, Russian, and Arabic.
Have a need for an interpreter who speaks a much less common language? Anything short of an obscure invented language and we can probably help. Of course, we also provide sign language services for the hearing impaired.
Need a Legal Videographer in TX?
Another trend in the court reporting space is to employ a professional legal videographer to document legal proceedings. Video remains a powerful medium, particularly when a legal matter moves into the litigation stage and arguments are made in front of a judge or jury.
Our legal videographers employ state-of-the-art technology capable of capturing the most subtle visual details—including positive or negative body language and revealing gestures and facial expressions. Our longtime clients have learned that a single nuance captured on video can make all the difference within the confines of a courtroom.
That’s why our experienced videographers utilize top-of-the-line lighting and sound equipment, helping to ensure that our clients always get the footage they need. Our esteemed video editors provide no-less-valuable services, including media enhancement, linear editing, nonlinear editing, audio & video duplication, and audio & video conversion.
Above all, don’t make the mistake of thinking that anyone with a smartphone can record the audio and video for your mission-critical deposition. Better to be safe and employ seasoned pros who have been trained to shoot videos in a legal setting—professionals who will obsess over the smallest details to help get you the recordings you want and need.
Need a Video Conferencing Solution in Williamson County, TX?
Finally, another frequent need among our clientele is a video conferencing solution. As you know, it’s not always possible or practical to have everyone physically present in the same location for a deposition. That’s why we have made it a priority to be able to provide our clients with top quality video conferencing solutions, which allow you to take depositions remotely while still getting the kind of results you would in person.
In other words, thanks to the latest in video conferencing technology you no longer need to be limited by geographic boundaries—or feel the pressure to travel to a remote location. Veteran trial attorneys know that getting on an airplane to fly to a deposition can be time-consuming, not to mention a big added expense for budget-conscious clients. With a video conferencing solution, you can reduce or eliminate travel costs and cut back on other expenses, and save your paralegal the aggravation of coordinating a deposition in a remote locale.
Better yet, it’s no more trouble to arrange a multi-site video conference than a single-site video conference. Our loyal clients know that we have access to hundreds of locations across the country and that our trained specialists excel at coordinating even the most complicated logistics. Further peace of mind comes from the fact that we provide a detailed outline of what you can expect from us.
We take care of the video conference setup, which includes selecting the location(s), working out the logistics, supplying and testing all essential
equipment, ensuring Internet access, and linking two or more locations. We utilize state-of-the-art gear with hi-definition video and our equipment is compatible with all laptops, desktops, tablets, and smartphones. Our conference rooms come fully furnished and have high-speed Internet, plus large monitors and all the amenities you might expect.
Last but not least, we also provide technical support throughout the proceeding so that you can concentrate on doing the best job possible for your client, and don’t need to worry about any technical malfunctions.
All in all, we believe you’ll save time and money by using our video conferencing services for your next deposition. So give us a call and give video conferencing a try.
