Like in years past, people are trying to become more efficient in the workplace, and the evidence-based market is no different. With the proliferation of the recorded word, the need for accurate, reliable and secure electronic documentation is evident. Transcripts create a written record that if used correctly can be a powerful tool to evidence- based industries.
Recorded statements of hearings, phone calls, testimonies, interviews have many benefits.  

Anyone who has ever played the party game called Telephone knows word of mouth isn’t a reliable source of information. You know the game: the first player whispers a long, complex sentence to Player 2, who then tries to relay the message exactly by whispering in the ear of Player 3, and so on. By the time the final player repeats the message aloud, it’s been hopelessly garbled. Everyone laughs.  

While recordings of conversations, hearings, interviews, testimonies, etc have become the norm, the ability to convert the audio content into written form is necessary to expand the accessibility, usability and accuracy of the information. The transcription of the spoken word, done in a secure and efficient manner, is more effective than the audio alone.  

There is a plethora of ways in which a transcript can be useful including:  

  1. Search. The ability to search a digital transcript allows a legal professional the ability to find specific information quickly and efficiently, saving time.  
  1. Formulate trial plans. Studying a clear transcript prior to a trial can allow legal professionals to prepare a successful trial strategy. Additionally, it allows the user to more accurately recall information that was exchanged during the interaction and clearly comprehend what was said, including subtle nuances and word choices.  
  1. Develop questions. Having a complete written record of a deposition or witness statement during a trial can help remind you of key statements that need clarification, as well as help to decide what questions they want the jury to hear.  
  1. Share and Collaborate:   Legal actions involve multiple parties requiring shared access to evidence and testimony. While media content can certainly be shared, there are more opportunities for participants to tag, highlight, query, and index what was said in a document, compared to the original video or audio source material.  

From digital court recording technologies that can be implemented onsite or remotely to the accurate transcription of these recordings, the legal industry is digitalizing how they work to become more accurate and efficient.
