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.

Legal Videography | ID
As we’re sure you’re aware, video remains a powerful tool in legal proceedings and it’s frequently a difference-maker for attorneys arguing a case in front of a judge or jury of a defendant’s peers. An experienced and highly-skilled legal videographer can vividly capture every detail of a proceeding—the kind of detail that can make or break a case or help facilitate a positive outcome in settlement negotiation. Moving beyond the influence of a transcript or audio recording, high-quality legal videography can capture positive or negative body language, as well as facial expressions that are incongruous with the speaker’s tone of voice. It can also help reveal slight nuances that may be indicative of witness coaching.
And while the advent of mobile phones and other handheld video devices have led some people to believe that just about anyone is capable of filming a hearing or deposition, you don’t want to leave capturing mission-critical audio and video in the hands of an amateur. Professionals experienced in legal videography not only have access to specialized equipment that captures the best-possible quality audio and video but also has the experience to adjust on the fly if and when the recording environment changes during the course of the proceedings.
Our videographers utilize top-of-the-line lighting and sound equipment so that clients get the footage they need. Using high-gain microphones and multiple, high-definition cameras in a digital format, our legal videographers provide you with a polished video recording of your deposition that is synchronized with the court reporter’s transcript.
Of course, in cases where raw audio and video isn’t sufficient, we provide a valuable array of post-production services, including linear editing, nonlinear editing, and media enhancement, as well as audio & video conversion and duplication services for a variety of formats, including DVD, CD, and even VHS in ID.
