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.

Arrange for a Professional Legal Videographer to Shoot Your Deposition | VA

Of course, one of the places where technology has seen great advancements in recent years is video technology. But that doesn’t mean anyone with a smartphone and a tripod should be filming your deposition videos.

Video is a powerful tool in the law, and shouldn’t be left in the hands of amateurs. If you need a court reporting service to record and transcribe your deposition, make sure that it employs expert videographers with high-definition cameras that can capture the most important visual details, including positive or negative body language, facial expressions, and slight gestures. A subtle expression captured on video can be a difference maker when it comes to a courtroom argument, a conference in the judge’s chambers, or a settlement negotiation.

Our legal videographers use top-of-the-line equipment and have years of experience working in a legal setting. They also work hand-in-hand with our editors, who provide post-production services like linear editing, nonlinear editing, media enhancement, audio & video duplication, and audio & video conversion to other formats (think: MPEG, DVD, CD, and VHS) in VA.

Video Conferencing | VA

Another way in which technology has made a positive difference in the world of court reporting is via video conferencing. More and more of our valued clients are taking advantage of video conferencing solutions, which can save time and money while still providing the same face-to-face impact of an in-person meeting. 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 Next Deposition in Virginia

If you need an interpreter to help facilitate your legal proceeding, we can help with that as well. As you know, many parties to lawsuits and other legal matters come from diverse backgrounds and may not speak English as their first language. Moreover, it’s not always easy for an attorney to find a qualified, reliable interpreter who is capable of translating a particular language at a moment’s notice.

We’ve always worked hard to meet all of our clients’ litigation support needs, whatever they may be. And we believe that delivering a comprehensive court reporting service means removing language barriers. That’s why we supply certified court reporters and interpreters for a long list of languages and dialects. We can arrange for interpreting services for over 140 different languages, including Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese, Chinese, Russian, Hindi, Dutch, Polish, Mandarin, and Arabic. We are prepared to provide real-time translation of attorneys’ questions, in addition to the translation of written documents.

So don’t fail to let your clients’ voices be heard. Whether you need an interpreter for a local case, an international deposition, or an arbitration hearing, we can ensure that all your needs and requirements are met.
