    Notes and Documentation Best Practices – Legal

    When uploading a job file, providing as much relevant supporting documentation as possible is a crucial step in ensuring that you get the most accurate transcript.

    Your court reporter is an invaluable resource to us as s/he is physically present during the proceedings. S/he is responsible not only for trying to get the best sound capture possible and facilitating best practices, but also for taking detailed notes and asking questions when necessary.

    At Verbit, we want to partner with you to optimize the transcription process by using your quality input to produce excellent output.

    Depending on the type of proceedings that is being recorded, there are different documents that will be available to you. Below, please find the list of documentation that is required or recommended for each proceeding type.

    All Verbit transcribers are trained to research and confirm the spelling of every entity they encounter (i.e. names, businesses, addresses, medical jargon, etc.). Typically, court reporters will also ask to confirm spellings after a proceeding has finished. Attaching this information can reduce research time and the incidence of phonetic spellings.

    Please note: A sample image of each type of documentation is provided in the appendixes.
