Court Reporter in New London County, CT | 866-374-7446 | Connecticut Stenographers

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.

As a national court reporting agency that provides certified court reporters, stenographers, legal videographers, and video conferencing technology, to attorneys who need to take a deposition, we augment the work of highly trained professionals using the latest in technology. That’s why we long have met and exceeded the expectations of our clients, who include law firms large and small, as well as corporate legal departments.

If you need a court reporter in New York, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, or just about anywhere else in the U.S., we can help.

Online Document Repository for Depositions Transcripts, Exhibits Connecticut

Of course, an attorney’s work doesn’t end when a deposition or other legal hearing is completed.  In fact, the attorney who can stay organized and quickly access all necessary information is the one most likely to prevail in the case or secure a favorable outcome for his or her client. That’s why a court reporting agency that can supply you with instant access to the documents you need is invaluable—a court reporting service like ours. We will provide you with online and mobile access to everything related to your case; this may include a personal online calendar, case transcripts, exhibits and schedules, as well as account information and invoices. Our secure online case management system allows you (and those attorneys, paralegals, and legal secretaries you designate) to view and download any materials you need—24/7.

Moreover, all documents are indexed for easy identification. You can use the online system to search for documents, download exhibits, print materials, and even export deposition text with the click of a mouse. Need physical copies of case documents or transcripts? We also provide traditional imaging and copying services, as well as physical depositories in Connecticut.

Arrange for a Professional Legal Videographer to Film Your Deposition | CT

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 CT.

    Video Conferencing Solutions for Depositions | CT

    And for those situations when it’s not possible or practical to assemble all parties in the same room at the same time, we can provide a video conferencing solution of the highest quality that enables you to take a deposition or conduct a hearing from just about anywhere in the world. So don’t be constrained by geography. And don’t suffer the stress of scheduling a deposition in a remote location. With our video conferencing solutions, you can cut down on travel costs, lodging costs, and other expenses, and also avoid the hassle associated with getting all parties together in the same place at the same time.

    Need an Interpreter for Your Deposition in Connecticut?

    One of the prime benefits of working with a national court reporting agency like ours is that we have relationships with a large, diverse array of interpreters covering more than 140 languages and dialects. As you know, the parties to lawsuits and other legal matters often come from diverse backgrounds and may not speak English as a first language. If you’re an attorney or paralegal you don’t want to spend your time and energy searching for a qualified interpreter, especially if you’re dealing with a less commonly spoken language or dialect. Leave it to us to find an interpreter who can provide the transcription and translation services you need.

    It’s all part of our ongoing effort to meet our clients’ litigation support needs, whatever they may be. We believe that delivering a comprehensive court reporting service means removing all language barriers. We can arrange for interpreting services for languages like Mandarin, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese, Dutch, Polish, Russian, and Arabic, as well as many more. We are prepared 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 arbitration hearing, we can make sure that all your needs and requirements are met.
