​When people first hear of realtime reporting, it often inspires a bout of confusion. How does it differ from “regular” reporting? The answer is simple enough, but it is still a substantial one. With realtime reporting, court reporters don’t have to go back after the legal proceedings to translate the phonetic transcript into “real English.” The transcript is immediately available to clients as it is being recorded thanks to a hookup from the shorthand machine to the attorney’s laptop, or another monitor.

Realtime reporters must maintain an even higher degree of accuracy to ensure the transcript is translated correctly the first time. Booking a realtime reporting with Hanna & Hanna Reporting allows clients to do so with the utmost confidence that their transcript will be as clean as possible.

Realtime reporting makes a world of difference in an attorney’s case, but what exactly is it? Continue reading to learn more.

Booking a realtime reporter means…

  • Once the trial or deposition ends, the transcript is immediately available to be emailed or printed.
  • The transcript can be displayed over the attorney’s transcript, allowing them to look over what was said without having the pause proceedings.
  • Attorneys and judges can search for key words and phrases in the document, making the summarization process even easier.
  • The transcript can be displayed over a monitor for anyone to see (great for the hard-of-hearing).
