Duties and responsibilities of a Digital Court Reporter
While Hollywood has created a courtroom vision where the film ends with a big emotional speech in front of a jury, moving towards a masterful conclusion with everyone applauding and wiping away tears, in reality, that is NOT how it always works.
Digital court reporting includes recording all information that takes place in the courtroom and in other areas of law and ensures that the audio is recorded accurately, while simultaneously taking notes of who is speaking. Modern technology is used to record court hearings to make information exchanged in the court easy to playback if and when needed.

- Taking notes of court proceedings, depositions, and administrative hearings
