Verbatim court reporters (CRs) cover a myriad of assignments in any setting where a transcript of the spoken word is required. Our accredited CR members work in areas ranging from American depositions, arbitrations, public inquiries, and regulatory health hearings.

Many of our CRs also write realtime, which is when the spoken word appears as text on a device instantaneously. It is important to remember the purpose for which realtime transcription is used. In a hearing/tribunal setting, it enables the viewer:

  • to see and/or mark immediately what was said;
  • to search back simultaneously to cross-check against previous testimony (whether given on the same day or previously); and
  • probably most importantly, to have instantly a full note of what was said and the context in which it was said, rather than the perhaps scanty notes made by others in the room.
