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 Document Repository Provides Easy Access to Deposition Transcripts New Jersey
In fact, one offering that our clients always appreciate is our online document repository, which enables you to find and access what you need for your case, twenty four hours a day, seven days a week. All documents are indexed for easy identification and then logged into our online case management system. You can use the system to search for documents, download exhibits, and export deposition text with the click of a mouse.

Only those individuals you designate (i.e., other attorneys, paralegals, and legal secretaries, for example) have access to the materials in New Jersey.
Legal Videographers, and Editors | NJ
As you know, video is an especially powerful tool in the legal environment. Yet it’s not good enough to have your deposition filmed by someone utilizing nothing more than a smartphone and a tripod. You want a professional who has been trained to record in a legal setting, who understands the importance of lighting, sound, and camera position, and who has access to the kind of specialized equipment that can capture the video and audio quality you need.
That’s why we work with experienced legal videographers who utilize state-of-the-art equipment, the kind of A/V gear that allows you to capture the most important visual details, including positive or negative body language, facial expressions, and even the slightest gestures. We’ve found that a single nuance captured on video has the potential to make all the difference in the world when it comes to settlement negotiation or courtroom arguments.
By the same token, you should expect access to equally experienced editors to handle all of your post-production needs. From our experience, those needs can include linear editing, nonlinear editing, audio & video duplication, audio & video conversion (into other formats), as well as image enhancement in NJ.
Video Conferencing for Your Deposition or Hearing | NJ
As for those occasions when it’s just not possible to have everyone physically present in the same location for a deposition, we are committed to helping you take a deposition remotely while still providing you the same face-to-face impact it would have in person. We offer video conferencing services that enable you to take depositions from anywhere in the United States—or the world. So don’t feel limited by geography and travel constraints. Coordinating travel for various parties to a deposition can be expensive and time-consuming. With video conferencing, you can cut down on travel costs and all other related expenses, while also avoiding the hassles associated with getting all parties together for a deposition or mediation hearing.
One simple phone call to us is all you need. We will take care of the video conference setup, which includes finding locations, working out the logistics, supplying the video and recording equipment, testing the equipment, ensuring working Internet access, and linking two or more locations for your deposition. We utilize state-of-the-art equipment with HD video and sharp audio. If you need a conference room for your video conference deposition, we can provide that as well. Our conference room locations come fully furnished and have high-speed Internet connections, large monitors, high-quality audio systems, and hands-free multi-line phone systems.
When you enlist our video conferencing services for a deposition or other legal proceeding, we will provide you with a detailed outline of what you can expect from us. We also provide technical support throughout the proceeding so that you can concentrate on the deposition or hearing itself. Save time and money by using video conferencing for your next deposition, and free yourself from the burden of worrying about disconnects or other technical issues.
Certified Court Reporters and Interpreters Available for Virtually Any Language in New Jersey
These days, the parties to lawsuits and other legal proceedings come from increasingly diverse backgrounds and often don’t speak English as a first language. Sometimes you might even need a court reporter or interpreter who is prepared to work in multiple languages at the same proceeding.
As a full-service court reporting agency we work hard to meet all of our clients’ litigation support needs, whatever they may be. And part of delivering a comprehensive court reporting service means removing language barriers. That’s why we supply certified court reporters and interpreters for a diverse array of languages and dialects, as well as sign language for the hearing impaired. In fact, we can provide you with court reporters and interpreters across a menu of 140 or so languages, including Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese, Chinese, Russian, Hindi, and Arabic. While we can’t promise you an interpreter who speaks an invented language like Esperanto or Klingon (the latter created for the alien race that inhabits the fictional Star Trek universe), we’re confident we have a solution for any language or dialect you are likely to encounter.
