In today’s legal world, having information when lawyers need it is important to success. This means taking advantage of the latest tools to offer the immediacy that gives law firms the most timely and up-to-date information.
Realtime reporting is how lawyers are getting transcripts as they happen, and the technology is available from court reporting companies working with the National Network of Reporting Companies (NNRC).
Realtime reporting means that the shorthand taken by a court reporter on a stenography machine is translated into English and appears immediately on a computer monitor or a large projection screen.
Realtime is similar to translation work, in that it appears on the screen in a rough draft. It appears within seconds of the words being spoken by someone in a courtroom. If an attorney’s computer is set up to the reporter’s computer, the attorney will receive the translation as well. This modern technology allows transcripts of trials to be delivered within hours after a case closes. It also makes it easier to refer to prior testimony during a trial.
Taking advantage of this technology is much easier than ever before through NNRC. We can connect attorneys to thousands of court reporting firms who can provide the professional assistance and technological knowhow to make utilizing realtime a success. These firms can help set up connections that allow an attorney to view transcripts as they happen anywhere in the country.
