Realtime services are another litigation service that attorneys can use to their advantage to help their client and case. Realtime technology is used during proceedings where the court reporter is connected to an attorney, or multiple parties at once, from the reporter’s writer to the attorney’s laptop. The attorneys are then able to follow along in real time and read what is being questioned and answered as the reporter transcribes it. This live feed allows attorneys to annotate and highlight portions of the testimony as it happens and can allow for quicker and cleaner follow up questions. With the ability to stream the realtime via a secure site, remote legal staff can follow along and provide feedback to their team, saving time. Providing streaming realtime can also help reduce travel costs as well. Another advantage of realtime is that attorneys can receive an instant rough draft once the proceeding is over and begin to prepare for their next deposition or court hearing.
The technological advantage realtime provides is a service that Caliber embraces by working with some of the most highly skilled realtime reporters in the country. With realtime being such an innovative technology, it takes a uniquely skilled court reporter to provide a high quality feed to those connected during proceedings. To be a court reporter, one needs to have exceptional speed, accuracy and be extremely disciplined. Being a realtime reporter takes those skills to another level. For a court reporter to be certified as a realtime reporter (CRR) they must be able to write at 200 words per minute with a 96% accuracy. Having a court reporter provide realtime is an advantage to an attorney, as they know they will be receiving a highly accurate and clean transcript. A clean record is vital to best presenting a case and keeping all points clear and precise.
However realtime services are needed, Caliber has the talent to provide it. Whether you have everyone in the same conference room or courtroom, or in different cities, Caliber will connect and provide the most accurate transcript to help benefit your case.
