If you have ever needed a court transcript in San Jose, you may have already seen a court reporter create completely accurate texts at unbelievable speeds. But even attorneys who regularly use court reporters for deposition or videography services continue to be amazed by watching court reporters in action.
Experienced court reporters type at speeds exceeding 200 words per minute while almost never glancing down at their keyboards. Court reporters rely on professional stenography machines. Unlike computers, these high-tech machines do not come with large color monitors. Instead, court reporters can double-check the words they type in small, black and white text. Given the fast pace of courtroom proceedings and depositions, lawyers, litigants, and judges alike are all thankful that court reporters no longer rely on pens or quills to record what transpires.
