Our court reporters utilize Computer Aided Transcription (CAT) software that assists us in taking the shorthand outlines that are created via the steno machine and translate that into English.
In addition to a full-size copy of the transcript, we can also provide you with a condensed transcript that can be created in a variety of formats (usually four pages of text on one page), along with a keyword index.
Our Certified Legal Video Specialists (CLVS) use only state-of-the-art professional video and audio recording equipment. When preparing for a deposition, video services should be used alongside a certified court reporter. We also offer Video CD, DVD, mpeg 1, 2 and 4 formats along with video/text synchronizing.
Electronic Transcript Services
De Scribe Reporting offers electronic mailing of transcripts. An e-transcript file (.ptx) is a completely self-contained, interactive transcript. Once the court reporter imports an ASCII file into the CAT software, the final file is encrypted, password protected and virus protected. It can be safely and securely emailed for instant electronic delivery or sent on CD. The transcript can also be provided in PDF format.
Along with your transcript order, upon request, we can provide you with a copy of the deposition on CD in ASCII format. ASCII is a standardized format that allows the legal professional to import the file into other litigation support software that they may possess. An ASCII file will also open up in Microsoft Word or Corel Word Perfect in text format.
De Scribe Reporting has conference rooms available in Southfield (Metro Detroit) Troy, Novi, Livonia, and Bloomfield Hills. Complimentary coffee service is provided in each location. Each of our conference rooms are equipped with speakerphones, video conferencing equipment, and dry erase boards for your convenience.
