Many high-profile cases and trials require expedited transcripts. Some may even necessitate real-time captioning. Advanced technologies now allow court reporters to instantly transform their shorthand notes into real-time transcripts. The text of these real-time transcripts can then be displayed on courtroom projection screens and computer monitors. The text can even be transmitted to remote locations.
Performing Real-Time Reporting
In order to produce real-time transcripts, court reporters connect their stenotype machines to a computer that has special transcription software. This computer-aided transcription (CAT) software helps the translation of a court reporter’s shorthand notes bank into English. In order for the software to work properly, court reporters must build and update their software translation dictionaries. This takes years to accomplish. These dictionaries allow the software to translate the court reporter’s shorthand notes into the correct text. Not every reporter offers Real-Time. It takes years of extra special training to be able to offer that service.
