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 Access to Calendar, Transcripts, and Exhibits for Your Deposition California

Arrange for a Professional Legal Videographer to Film Your Deposition | Grand Terrace, CA
Yet another great tool for preserving everything that transpires during a deposition is video. If you need a court reporting service to record and transcribe your deposition, make sure you also retain an expert videographer. For one, professional legal videographers utilize the latest equipment—technology that can capture the most important visual details, whether that’s positive or negative body language, facial expressions, and even the slightest gestures. Experienced attorneys recognize that a single nuance or gesture captured on video can be a difference maker when it comes to a settlement negotiation or an argument in a courtroom or judge’s chambers.
That’s also why experienced attorneys don’t leave video production in the hands of an amateur with a smartphone. It’s preferable to employ an experienced legal videographer, one who has been trained to shoot videos in a deposition setting, one who recognizes the importance of lighting, sound, and camera position, and one who has access to high-definition cameras and other sophisticated equipment that can provide the best-possible imagery and audio.
Don’t overlook the value of an experienced editor, either. As a top court reporting agency, we offer all necessary post-production services, including linear editing, nonlinear editing, and media enhancement. Audio and video duplication, as well as audio and video conversion to other popular formats, is available as well. Let us videotape and edit your deposition, and provide any post-production or duplications services you may need in Grand Terrace, CA.

We offer video conferencing services that enable you to take depositions from anywhere in the world and save you the time of coordinating travel for all involved parties, which can be expensive and time-consuming. With our video conferencing solution, you can reduce travel costs, lodging costs, and other expenses, also avoid the hassle associated with assembling all parties for a deposition or hearing.
Get a Qualified Interpreter for your Deposition, Mediation or Arbitration Hearing in Grand Terrace, 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.
