Court Reporting Technology

Program Information

Real-time reporters create word-for-word transcripts of speeches, conversations, legal proceedings, meetings, or other events. Real-time reporters play a critical role in legal proceedings which require an exact record of what was said. They are responsible for producing a complete, accurate, and secure legal transcript of courtroom proceedings, witness testimonies, and depositions. Some real-time reporters, however, do not work in the legal setting or in courtrooms. These reporters primarily serve people who are deaf or hard of hearing by transcribing speech to text as the speech occurs.
