Getting the Most Accurate Transcript with Your Court Reporter
Tips For an Accurate Transcript Every Time!
Help Your Court Reporter
An accurate transcript can make a world of difference for the outcome of your case. Your court reporter has been trained to be as accurate as possible, but there are things you can do to make their job easier.
Provide Correct Spelling Of Keywords
While typing on a normal keyboard is done by letter, on a stenograph, words are recorded phonetically. This can result in incorrect spelling on an initial draft. Most times, court reporters are able to refine their transcript, but sometimes, there are some words a court reporter may be uncertain about. Before the trial or deposition, present your court reporter with a list of words, phrases, or names that might pose a spelling error due to language barriers or simply because of multiple/identical spellings in a word.
Even though court reporters can type over 200 words a minute, it is still advised that you not mumble, speak too quickly, or speak over another person to assure absolute clarify. By properly enunciating your words, this allows court reporters to record the most accurate transcript possible.
Use Complete Words, Not Inarticulate Sounds
In everyday speech, we often use sounds in the place of words. Mumbling an “uh-uh” and “uh-huh” in place of “no” and “yes” is commonplace, but these types of sounds cannot be typed on the stenograph and can cause problems. Please ask for clarification if a witness or opposing counsel uses these sounds to assure accuracy.
