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.

Online Case Management (Including Document Repository) New Jersey

Of course, one other way that technology has had a notable effect in the legal industry is by improving efficiency. In fact, the attorney who can stay organized and quickly access the necessary information has a decided advantage over his or her opponent. As such, you may find yourself desiring access to case transcripts and documents at a moment’s notice. What you want is a court reporting service that can supply you with instant access to the documents you need using any device with an Internet connection.

We have the tools to provide you with online and mobile access to all materials related to your account, including a personal online calendar, case transcripts, exhibits, schedules, billing information, and invoices. The online system allows you to view and download any materials you need 24/7. Additionally, our online case management system is secure so that only you and those you designate (other attorneys, paralegals, and legal secretaries) will have access to the documents related to your case.

We also provide a document repository so that you can find what you need when you need it. All documents are indexed for easy identification and then logged into our online case management system. 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. If you need physical copies of case documents or transcripts, we provide traditional imaging and copying services as well in Belmar, New Jersey.

Our Legal Videographers | Belmar, NJ

As for the other seasoned professionals who are a part of our team, those include experienced legal videographers. Some attorneys can’t resist the temptation to cut corners when it comes to videotaping a deposition or other hearing. In reality, you want professional legal videographers who have been trained to film in a legal setting, who understand the importance of lighting and camera position, and who utilize the kind of specialized equipment that can capture the quality of audio and imagery you’re looking for. Perhaps there are some occasions when you might be able to get away with cutting corners; but when things don’t go exactly as planned, that’s when you’ll appreciate having a seasoned professional working with you—the kind of individual who has the resources to maintain a certain amount of redundancy, for example.

After all, you never want to finish a deposition and find that the video you recorded is unusable. As you know, video can be a powerful tool in a legal proceeding, particularly when matters reach the trial stage and issues are argued in front of a judge or jury. That’s why if you need a court reporting service to record and transcribe your deposition, you want to make sure that it employs expert videographers utilizing state-of-the-art technology that can capture the most subtle details, including body language, facial expressions, and the kind of gestures that might be indicative of witness coaching. A single gesture or facial expression can help buttress a settlement negotiation or courtroom argument.

Also, if you require editing services, our editors are every bit the equal of our videographers in terms of quality and experience. We offer a number of post-production services, including linear editing, nonlinear editing, media enhancement, audio & video duplication, and audio & video conversion to other formats, including MPEG, DVD, CD, and even VHS in Belmar, NJ.

And for those occasions when it’s just not possible to have everyone physically present in the same location for a deposition or hearing we offer video conferencing solutions that enable you to achieve the same face-to-face results you would in person. Better yet, with video conferencing, you can cut down on travel costs, lodging costs, and other expenses, and also avoid the hassles associated with getting all of the parties together for a deposition.

Moreover, our conference room locations come fully furnished and have high-speed internet connections, video capabilities, large monitors, and other amenities.
