Have stenographers been changed by technology?

The key to maintaining a career is to adapt to new technologies. A career area has embraced the technology is the Court Reporting.
A career as a court reporter offers a wide range of opportunities. The function of a court reporter is to record verbatim court, transcribed statements, recording business meetings, offering real-time translation services for the deaf, and provide subtitling services.
The use of technology in many respects has changed the way court reporters perform their duties. Instead of leaving the field decrease, court reporters have decided to welcome the new technology. Although there have been many technological advances in voice recognition software, humans are required to report the accuracy of the technology. Thanks to technology, court reporters are more connected to all areas of the judicial system.

Time reporting involves showing real evidence in real time on computer screens. stenographers have the ability to record and instantly translate testimony and display it on the computer screen during trial. These real-time transcripts can also be printed in a deposition. Final versions of the transcripts have same day availability of such forms as disk, print or share online.
Real-time reporting capability allows further investigation. There is now software that can scan many documents and highlight key words and phrases to improve and strengthen research and preparation of cases. Real-time recording reduces the amount of time it takes to get the right information to the applicant.
Interactive real-time reporting allows focal points to his team to a text witness during testimony. Stenographers use a computer and a stenographic machine. The stenographic allows the reporter to use a shorthand method using speech sounds to record information. The computer uses software called Computer Aided Transcription (CAD) to translate information into English. The information can then be edited, passed to the appropriate official and stored until requested.
Other technological advances in court reporting is the communication time access Translation real or CART. It is used mostly for deaf people, giving them real time access to what is happening. Broadcast captioning is also a prosperous area of court reporters, since they can enter captions of live television programs for the deaf.
Another technological advance court reporters are now using the compression of the transcripts, statements and videos on disks that can be shared with all judicial officers competent.
At present there is a growing demand for court reporters. A study by the Bureau of Labor Statistics found that court reporting job “will increase by 25% in the coming years.” When court reporters to embrace the technological advances and incorporate them into their duties daily work, become more efficient, faster, and therefore more valuable to the legal process. In addition, many fields are using non-legal skills of court reporters.
There was a significant increase in demand in real time reporters subtitles for the hearing impaired. It is a job suitable for court reporters because they are trained and educated to translate word for word the speech into text quickly and accurately. Court reporting is a career that has taken advantage of changes in the technology field is to ensure that is in demand.
