Digital court recordings make it possible to outsource audios and videos to legal transcription and deposition services, also making it accessible to legal professionals and court personnel, as well as litigants needing a copy of the record. A professional service of court transcription will be able to transcribe these digital recordings at a fraction of the cost, using their own resources and experienced team of transcriptionists.
Digital recordings can also be used as a safety net for backup capturing the entire record. Even court reporters use recorders as their backup in case of mishaps or for further clarity of their transcripts.
The Use of Transcripts with digital recordings
Another plus is being able to sync transcripts to audios or videos, which are useful in legal proceedings. Court officials are then able to access video recordings and follow along with a copy of the transcript in hand. Digital recordings of hearings, pleadings, etc. are also uploaded to federal and other judicial court servers making recordings available almost immediately when required.
As Digital Recording continues to increase in popularity, Legal Transcription continues to grow and become an integral part of the litigation process.
