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.

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 New Jersey

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 New Jersey.

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

Fortunately, though, legal videographers tend to speak much the same language—communicating their message through the power of an audio-video recording. As we’re sure you recognize, video can be an especially powerful medium when it comes to legal matters. If you need a court reporting service to record a deposition or hearing, you want to make sure that they employ expert videographers using the kind of cutting-edge technology that is capable of capturing the most subtle visual details, like positive or negative body language, facial expressions that don’t match the tone of voice, and gestures that may be indicative of witness coaching. A single nuance captured on video can make all the difference in the world when it comes to a settlement negotiation or courtroom argument.

So don’t fall into the trap of thinking that anyone with a camera and tripod can film your deposition and get the results you need. Insist on utilizing professionals who have been trained to film in a legal setting, who understand the importance of lighting, sound, and camera position, and who utilize top-of-the-line lighting and equipment in NJ.

Video Conferencing Solutions for Your Deposition | NJ

And for those instances when it’s not possible to have everyone physically present in the same room for a deposition we offer cutting-edge video conferencing solutions. Our longtime clients will tell you that we are committed to helping clients take depositions remotely while getting the same results they would if taking the deposition in person. In fact, we offer video conferencing solutions that enable you to take depositions from anywhere in the United States or around the world.

So don’t remain limited by the constraints of time and geography. Coordinating travel for the various parties to a deposition can be expensive and time-consuming. With video conferencing, you can cut down on travel costs, lodging costs, and other expenses, and also avoid the hassle associated with getting all of the parties together in one room.

However, if you need a conference room for your deposition, arbitration hearing, or other litigation proceeding, we can provide a room for your single-site video conference or a multi-site video conference. We have access to hundreds of locations so scheduling a video conference that meets your needs will be a straightforward process.

In fact, one phone call is all it takes. We will handle the video conference setup, which includes: providing options for locations, working out the logistics, supplying the A/V equipment, testing the equipment, ensuring working Internet access, and linking two or more locations. We always utilize state-of-the-art equipment with HD video and high-quality audio. Compatibility with all laptops, desktops, tablets, and smartphones is ensured as well. Moreover, our conference room locations come fully furnished and have high-speed Internet connections, large monitors, and all the amenities you have come to expect in a first-class conference room setup.

We also provide technical support before, during, and after the deposition or hearing so that you can concentrate on legal work. You won’t have to worry about disconnects or other technical issues. And when you enlist our video conferencing services, we will provide you with a detailed outline identifying all the arrangements that have been made on your behalf.

Interpreting Services in New Jersey

As a leading court reporting agency, we also provide highly experienced interpreters to clients in need. Even in major cities, it’s not always easy for attorneys to find an interpreter who is capable of translating a particular language or a dialect at a moment’s notice. Thanks to our resources and extensive network, we provide qualified interpreters during the time frame you need them.

Certified Court Reporters Available for Any Language or Dialect

In fact, in this day and age—when it seems as if more and more parties to lawsuits or legal proceedings don’t speak English (or don’t speak English as a first language)—we believe that delivering a comprehensive court reporting service means removing any and all language barriers. That’s why we supply certified court reporters and interpreters for virtually any language or dialect, not to mention sign language for the hearing impaired.

We can arrange for interpreting and translation services for more than140 different languages, including romance languages like Spanish, French, Italian and Portuguese, plus other commonly spoken languages like Russian, German, Chinese, Japanese, and Arabic. We are prepared to provide real-time translation of attorneys’ questions, in addition to the translation of documents, a commonly requested service during the discovery phase of proceedings.

Retain a Qualified Interpreter for Your Deposition or Hearing

So whether you need an interpreter for a local case, an international deposition, an arbitration hearing, or the translation of a transcript or other document, we can make sure that your needs are met in a timely fashion.
