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 Film Your Deposition | CA
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 CA.

That’s why we have made a commitment to providing our clients around the country with top quality video conferencing solutions, which allow you to take depositions remotely while still getting the same results you would in person.
In other words, thanks to technology you no longer need to be limited by geography—or need to travel to a remote location. Attorneys and other law firms employees know that getting on an airplane to travel to a deposition can be expensive and time-consuming. With video conferencing, you can reduce travel costs and limit other expenses, while also avoiding the hassle associated with coordinating a deposition at a remote location.

Get a Qualified Interpreter for your Deposition, Mediation or Arbitration Hearing in 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.
