Digital court reporting, also referred to as electronic court reporting, has made its way into a number of courtrooms across the United States, thanks to advancements in digital recording. Digital reporting involves the use of high-quality digital recording equipment. The digital recording equipment, which includes a number of strategically placed microphones and video recorders throughout the courtroom, is generally hardwired. Generally speaking, a digital court reporter must always oversee the recording process, and is responsible for taking down notes during the proceedings and creating a log note of speaker identification and keywords, which serve as a general outline of the digital recording.
 
Benefits of Digital Court Reporting
