Virtual depositions are becoming more prevalent throughout the legal industry. This abrupt switch from an in-person practice to a virtual environment can be a challenge and it takes an experienced reporter to deliver high-quality services.
Remote depositions are among Peak Captioning’s specialties. Founder Traci Walker, RPR-RMR-CRR-CRC, spent over 30 years in a legal setting as a court reporter and stenographer. She has the knowledge and experience to handle realtime transcription for virtual depositions quickly and accurately via Zoom video conference or teleconference.
Peak Captioning offers both Zoom video conference and teleconference options to transcribe and deliver speech-to-text output within a few seconds of the words being spoken. Realtime transcription allows the attorney to confirm the accuracy of the record as it is being created and to leave the deposition with a rough transcript for immediate use.
Accuracy is one of Traci’s Walker’s strengths. She was a qualifier in the 2019 National Realtime Contest with 97% accuracy. She is a licensed and certified court reporter who observes remote deposition best practices and is aware of individual state’s laws related to remote depositions and the authorization of remote oaths.
Peak Captioning is available to do a practice run and to receive exhibits in advance of the scheduled deposition to make sure your deposition is as smooth as possible.
Experience with Virtual Depositions
The coronavirus pandemic has moved everything online, but even after the return to the office, it’s likely that virtual depositions are here to stay. After all, they save time and money as in-person depositions often involve the cost of travel for the attorney and parties.
Virtual depositions do provide challenges for a court reporter. There are background noises, confusion as to whom is being referenced and speakers on mute. That’s why it’s important to have a court reporter with years of experience in remote depositions.
Peak Captioning’s deposition services are consistently delivered on-time and with the highest quality. For remote deposition services across the United States, call 720-598-2876 or request your deposition online today!
