Creating an Accurate Transcript
Court reporters have the ability to type around 200 words a minute, allowing them to record what was said exactly as it is said during a legal proceedings. Despite this incredible feat, reporters are still limited by their human senses. There are a few things you can do to ensure your court reporter produces the most accurate transcript possible– benefiting the both of you.
Provide a List of Keywords/Phrases
Court reporters use a machine called a stenograph, which allows them to record what is said phonetically, leading to faster typing. This often leads to incorrect spelling in the initial draft. If you are aware of words or phrases that could post spelling errors, provide your reporter a list of key words, phrases, and names so that when they refine their transcript, they get it right the first time. This saves not only your reporter time, but you as well.
If your court reporter has difficulty understanding what was said, they will not be able to accurately notate what was said for the record. Make sure your court reporter can hear what you, your witness, and the opposing counsel says by not mumbling, speaking over another person, or speaking too quickly. This makes it so the court reporter does not have to interrupt the flow of legal discourse to ask for clarification.
Use Complete Words, Not Inarticulate Sounds
Colloquialisms such as “uh-huh” and “uh-uh” to mean “yes” and “no” are common in everyday speech. Though easily understood by most people, they are not ideal for court reporters, as stenographs do not have keys to accurate represent these sounds. If anyone uses one of these implied sounds (or any other), please ask for clarification so everything can be recorded properly.
