Oklahoma Court Reporting Firm Celebrates Evolution from Stenography to Technology

Technology drives innovation at Oklahoma's Steno Services, LLC.

(PRWEB) September 16, 2016

Court reporters today have undergone many different changes in order to evolve in a rapidly different business environment. Many court reporters today have been able to achieve success by implementing technological advances in their own practices. That's certainly the case for Ginger Baze of Steno Services, LLC.

Some states are currently ending their stenographic court reporting services and moving to entirely digital recordings. While this initially seems like a process that saves time and money, it's also fraught with risk. Agencies transcribing materials after the fact may be unable to discern details easily, and there is no chance to pause the proceedings and clarify after the fact. As Ginger shares, many court reporting firms are missing out on the chances afforded by realtime technology for not only depositions but in the courtroom as well. Court reporters can use their realtime skills to gain remote access into the courtrooms and take down the record from miles, even states, away. This ensures the integrity of the record when it's taken by a certified court reporter and addresses the predicted court reporter shortage the courts are facing over the next few years. Remote realtime ensures you still get the accuracy and professionalism offered by an experienced court reporter, allowing for the best of both worlds.

With the many changes taking place in the court reporting landscape, reporters are faced with a choice to adapt and reposition themselves or be entirely replaced by digital recording equipment. Ginger shares that being able to evolve and capitalize on the opportunities afforded by technology has made all the difference.

Audio and video recording have become increasingly popular in courts around the country. Unfortunately, however, programs that manage digital recordings may not capture the nuances of the courtroom. For example, if a witness is difficult to understand or if there is crosstalk between two or more people at one time, a digital recording company managing things after the fact will not be able to stop the proceedings and ask for one at a time to speak or ask for further clarifications; whereas, a court reporter in a live deposition or using remote realtime in the courtroom can speak up when needed, ask for those clarifications, and give the necessary instructions.

Steno Services, LLC has been able to reap the benefits of using programs like Remote LiveLitigation and certified live depositions by making the company a Certified LiveLitigation Agency. This means that any court reporter working with Steno Services has the ability to log on and conduct remote depositions for out-of-town or out-of-state attorneys. The fact that many depositions can now be conducted from many hours away reduces the number of miles that attorneys have to drive and ensures that they still get the professionalism and accurate approach of a trained court reporter.
