The field of legal transcription is constantly evolving to meet the needs of attorneys and the courts. A major step towards more digital court reporting has been accelerated due to COVID-19, forcing remote hearings and online depositions. This has increased the quantity of audio and video legal recordings. The use of online video conferencing and remote depositions is on the rise, and Speechpad can help to streamline this process and reduce travel costs.
The introduction of digital court reporting and online hearings has had a significant impact on legal transcription. They have enabled attorneys and other legal professionals to request and access transcripts and court records faster and less expensive than ever before. Online depositions also eliminate the need for physical court reporters, which can be costly, time-consuming, and very difficult to schedule. Also, multiple parties from different locations can take part, saving time and money.
