Can Technology Replace Court Reporters? This is a question that gets asked periodically, but most legal professionals believe the answer is no. Technology has actually improved and enhanced the service that court reporters provide, but it can’t replace the skills and experience provided by human beings.
For one, in spite of tremendous enhancements in digital recording technology, such recordings have the potential to malfunction, which can lead to fragmented, garbled, and even missing testimony in the absence of prompt human intervention. Second, recording and transcribing conversations requires human judgement and active intervention, particularly when two people attempt to speak at the same time. Third, at the present time, voice recognition software is not reliable enough to provide the kind of quality necessary in a legal forum. It’s flaws become especially evident when a speaker has a strong accent, talks very fast, talks at a low volume (a “low talker,” in Seinfeld parlance), or becomes emotional. Voice recognition software also doesn’t do well in rooms where there is background noise, which is unavoidable when depositions and other legal hearings are conducted. You can also imagine a scenario in which voice recognition software captures an off-the-record conversation and includes it in the record, which would obviously be disadvantageous to the aggrieved party.

Online Case Management as a Legal Advantage California
As you probably know, technology has had a profound impact on legal work and the speed in which it can be completed. That’s why lawyers who can stay organized and quickly access all relevant information are the ones who end up winning the argument or the case at hand.
This is yet another reason it’s advantageous to retain a leading court reporting agency that can provide the technology to supply you with instant access to the documents you need for your deposition, arbitration hearing, or other legal proceeding. If you’re not yet able to do so, imagine being able to view your case information with just one keystroke on a computer—or on an iPad, iPhone, or any other mobile device connected to the Internet.

Our Legal Videographers | Huntington Beach, CA
As for the other seasoned professionals who are a part of our team, those include experienced legal videographers. Some attorneys can’t resist the temptation to cut corners when it comes to videotaping a deposition or other hearing. In reality, you want professional legal videographers who have been trained to film in a legal setting, who understand the importance of lighting and camera position, and who utilize the kind of specialized equipment that can capture the quality of audio and imagery you’re looking for. Perhaps there are some occasions when you might be able to get away with cutting corners; but when things don’t go exactly as planned, that’s when you’ll appreciate having a seasoned professional working with you—the kind of individual who has the resources to maintain a certain amount of redundancy, for example.
After all, you never want to finish a deposition and find that the video you recorded is unusable. As you know, video can be a powerful tool in a legal proceeding, particularly when matters reach the trial stage and issues are argued in front of a judge or jury. That’s why if you need a court reporting service to record and transcribe your deposition, you want to make sure that it employs expert videographers utilizing state-of-the-art technology that can capture the most subtle details, including body language, facial expressions, and the kind of gestures that might be indicative of witness coaching. A single gesture or facial expression can help buttress a settlement negotiation or courtroom argument.
Also, if you require editing services, our editors are every bit the equal of our videographers in terms of quality and experience. We offer a number of post-production services, including linear editing, nonlinear editing, media enhancement, audio & video duplication, and audio & video conversion to other formats, including MPEG, DVD, CD, and even VHS in Huntington Beach, CA.

Get a Qualified Interpreter for your Deposition, Mediation or Arbitration Hearing in Huntington Beach, California
As a top court reporting agency, we work hard to meet all of our clients’ litigation support needs. That’s why we have focused on building up a stable of interpreters covering virtually any language or dialect you might encounter.
As you know, making sure your client understands the dialogue and questions asked during a deposition or other legal hearing is imperative. For clients who speak English as a second—or a third or fourth—language, understanding questions may only be possible with the help of an interpreter. A client who goes without the assistance of a qualified, experienced interpreter may significantly harm their legal interests, not to mention the pursuit of truth-seeking.
So take comfort in knowing that we can supply interpreters covering more than 140 languages, including Spanish, French, German, Italian, Dutch, Portuguese, Japanese, Chinese, Russian, Hindi, and Arabic. Among other things, our interpreters can provide real-time translation of attorneys’ questions, and also translate documents during the discovery process. Call us today if you need one or more interpreters to facilitate your deposition, mediation, or arbitration hearing.
