What is the Transcription Process of a Court Reporter?

Posted on: July 28th, 2020 by Sfl Media No Comments


One of the most important aspects of our modern way of law is the court transcript. A court transcript is a word-for-word written document that displays the actions and statements said by every party within the court room. This all-important document must be made with perfection in order for an involved judge, attorney or any other legal participant to look back on the trial for information whenever they choose to do so. A court transcript is crafted by a court reporter, who sits in and records everything they hear.


Knowledge and Training Required to be a Court Reporter


Each different state has many different requirements and credentials in order to become a court reporter. Some states require college degrees. Whereas, other states need a certification and applicants need to possess and extensive knowledge of listening skills, writing skills, reading comprehension, concentration and attention to detail. Judges and attorneys require a perfect transcript to look back on cases. In other words, there is no room for error when recording the proceedings for a trial. The standard for typing speed for a court reporter would be about 225 words per minute.

Court reporters must learn a special type of shorthand. It is an abbreviated language form that is designed for rapid transcription, to take notes on a steno machine in order to catch each word that is spoken. Once the notes are entered into the machine, they are translated by computer software into English.

What Types of Questions Should you Expect from a Remote Deposition?

Posted on: July 20th, 2020 by Sfl Media No Comments



Preparing for a remote deposition could seem like a daunting task at first, but with the right knowledge you can expect a smooth procedure. A deposition is a form of pretrial investigation to receive an oral statement of a witness under oath. Many cases have to involve individuals that weren’t directly involved, but can provide vital information that will help the speed of the trial. In some cases, information from a deposition may even lead to a case being settled before the trial ever begins.


Remote Deposition Questions


During a remote deposition it is important that you are honest with everything you say. You are under oath, meaning that the weight of your words will remain the same as in the courtroom in front of a judge and/or jury. Many questions that follow into a full deposition may be very different based on the case. However, here are some of the more standard remote deposition questions you can expect.


The main reason for all of these questions is to establish where your mindset is at prior to delving into the detailed questions. Also, background questions establish the legitimacy of your claims if you answer them without hesitation.

How Videography Has Rocketed Court Reporting into the Future

Posted on: July 14th, 2020 by Sfl Media No Comments



Court Reporting is now an age-old industry that has brought an infinite amount of value into the courtroom. However, just as many other industries have developed technologies for betterment, court reporters have called upon legal videographers to aid them in the modern era. Videographers possess plenty of valuable skills that help a court reporter take the next step in completing their jobs. Videography has added an element of audio-freedom for the court reporter. Being able to sit in, or tune in, to a video streaming courtroom allows them to focus in on all the sounds, comments and statements made by all legal participants within the trial.


What Actually Changes for the Court Reporter?


You may ask yourself, “Doesn’t the legal videographer make the court reporter unnecessary?” The answer is no. Regardless how far into the future we may proceed, a third-party person must be there to record all statements made throughout the trial. It must be an unbiased and professional person to examine, transcribe and formulate correct and precise recordings. However, the addition of videography to the industry, has allowed for a whole new experience within the court reporting industry. Recorded video and audio allow for not only a video sit-in for transcription, but also material for them to cross-examine and document. These transcripts are now able to be timestamped with perfection on not only text, but audio recording and video recording.
