Why do you need a court reporter for your San Francisco deposition? Perhaps you are a juror listening to a case and a witness says something crucial that you do not quite hear. Would it help to have a voice recorder replay those words? Perhaps. Perhaps, with the assistance of speech recognition technology, you may even have a transcription of that recording. Still, even in this information age, there is no guarantee that the voice recorder correctly “heard” the witness’s words. In such a case, it is best to have the interpretive skills of someone like a San Francisco court reporter. Court reporting involves the distinguishing and analysis of the subtleties and nuances of speech and language.

Voice recognition software still lags behind human accuracy when it comes to analyzing intonation, accents, foreign vocabularies and other differences in speech patterns.
