Court Reporters in Ohlman IL | 312-736-7780 | Illinois Stenographers
For one, in spite of tremendous enhancements in digital recording technology, such recordings have the potential to malfunction, which can lead to fragmented, garbled, and even missing testimony in the absence of prompt human intervention. Second, recording and transcribing conversations requires human judgement and active intervention, particularly when two people attempt to speak at the same time. Third, at the present time, voice recognition software is not reliable enough to provide the kind of quality necessary in a legal forum. It’s flaws become especially evident when a speaker has a strong accent, talks very fast, talks at a low volume (a “low talker,” in Seinfeld parlance), or becomes emotional. Voice recognition software also doesn’t do well in rooms where there is background noise, which is unavoidable when depositions and other legal hearings are conducted. You can also imagine a scenario in which voice recognition software captures an off-the-record conversation and includes it in the record, which would obviously be disadvantageous to the aggrieved party.

Need a Legal Videographer to Film Your Deposition? | Ohlman, IL
As we’re sure you know, video can be a valuable tool in the legal arena, particularly when issues must be argued in front of a judge or jury. If you need a court reporting service to record and transcribe your deposition, make sure that the individuals they employ are expert videographers using technology that can capture the most important visual details—like positive or negative body language or facial expressions that don’t match the tone of voice. A single nuance captured on video can make all the difference in the world when it comes to a settlement negotiation or a courtroom presentation.
Do not make the mistake of thinking that anyone with a camera and tripod can film your deposition. You need professionals who have been trained to shoot videos in a legal setting, who understand the importance of lighting and sound, and who have access to specialized equipment that can capture sharp video images and crystal-clear audio.
Our legal videographers always utilize top-of-the-line lighting and sound equipment so our clients get the footage they need. We use high-gain microphones and multiple, high-definition cameras in a digital format to provide you with a polished videotape of your deposition, one that is synchronized with the reporter’s transcript.
Additionally, if you require editing by dedicated specialists after the shoot, we offer a number of post-production services, including linear editing, nonlinear editing, media enhancement, audio & video duplication, and audio & video conversion for other formats like DVD in Ohlman, IL.

Interpreters in Ohlman, Illinois
In terms of our people-based solutions, two of the most requested services we provide are: finding interpreters and legal videographers.
Regarding the importance of qualified interpreters, many parties to lawsuits and related legal matters come from diverse backgrounds and don’t necessarily speak English as a first language. This can be a challenge for attorneys who want to make sure their clients’ voices are heard—and that they fully understand the questions being asked of them during proceedings. But as you probably know, it’s not always easy to find a qualified interpreter at a moment’s notice, especially if your client’s first language is a less commonly spoken dialect. In some cases, you might even need interpreters and court reporters that are able to work in multiple languages.
As part of our effort to meet all of our clients’ litigation support needs, we believe that delivering a comprehensive court reporting service means removing language barriers. That’s why we have developed a stable of certified court reporters and interpreters for 140 different languages, as well as sign language for the hearing impaired. We can arrange for interpreting services for Mandarin, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese, Dutch, Swedish, Russian, Hindi, and Arabic, among many others. While we might have to draw the line at providing an interpreter for an invented language like Esperanto, short of needing an Esperanto-to-English interpreter, we can help. So whether you need an interpreter for a local case or an international deposition, give us a call today!
