Legal transcription involves listening to recorded dialog and typing it into a text document. Creating a transcript of a recording turns it into a useful, searchable, easily-referenced document.

Many court cases require transcriptions of recorded dialog, yet doing this work at your firm is tedious and often requires excessive time and resources.

What’s more, most firms do not have the equipment or software required, much less the time required, to transcribe long depositions or interrogations.

For this reason, you need a professional legal transcription service.

Legal Transcription Uses

Law firms frequently benefit from transcriptions of recordings for a variety of reasons. Hearings, depositions, and interrogations all require legal transcription.

A typed copy of every recording should be included in every case file so you can quickly access the information you need. Otherwise, you and anyone else involved in the case will need to listen to the recording again every time you have to cite a particular fact.

What’s more, digital copies of the text file can easily and quickly be searched for key words and phrases.

If you or anyone in your firm conducts an interview or even records some notes during field work, you will also need these transcribed for easy access. In addition, wire taps need to be transcribed from their recorded formats if you plan to use the information in a case.
