Transcription Services and Technologies

In addition to our normal court reporting services, we offer a broad range of transcription services including

  • Audio tape transcription
  • Video tape transcription
  • Legal, medical, and technological transcription.

All completed transcripts are available in printed form, on diskette, or via e-mail.

We also provide transcript text synchronized with video images through our digitized video imagine service. Closed captioning can also be added to the final digital video. Digital video is stored on CD-ROM or DVD and lets clients view the video while seeing the transcript text at the same time.

ASCII files and imaged exhibits can be provided on CD-ROM in TIF or PDF formats. LiveNote and RealLegal both offer links to the electronic transcript.

We support the following Transcription Technologies
