The legal industry depends on professional legal transcription services in order to operate properly. Without accurate transcripts, law firms, court clerks, and others in the law field won’t have the accurate legal documents they require to run legal proceedings.
In the legal field, in particular, both timeliness and accuracy are paramount. Legal documents need to be on hand at appointed times in order for a legal case to proceed on time. A slow legal transcribing service can hold up a case or lead to missed deadlines and extra costs. Errors in an official document can leave a case in doubt or cause legal professionals to make errors in their own decisions.
This is why law firms today are turning to a more advanced level of legal transcription. Combining the latest in Adaptive Automated Speech Recognition Technology (ASR) with Artificial Intelligence, as well as the skill and diligent eye of experienced legal transcriptionists, Verbit offers those in the legal industry a superior level of speed and accuracy.
What is legal transcription? How can high-quality transcription services support legal professionals?
Legal transcription companies take video and audio recordings of legal proceedings and transcribe the audio word-for-word into printed format. In the legal world – because every nuance matters – a verbatim transcription is sometimes necessary. Having access to these legal documents gives industry professionals the legal support they need to make decisions for a client, to research for a court case, and to support legal arguments.
Legal transcription companies can transform both audio and video content into a readable text document. This allows lawyers, solicitors, legal aides, and other professionals to quickly access the information they need without having to sift through lengthy material. In document form, legal professionals can also store, organize, and manage transcriptions for future use. This makes it easy to quickly look over past case details that may have similarities to a current one or to access the right material if a case is reopened.
Legal transcription companies can transform a variety of recorded events into verbatim transcriptions, including:
With legal transcription services, even the fine details of conversational grammar usage and patterns in someone’s speech are important for certain types of source materials like interrogation or witness testimonies. Where other industries expect the end product to include correct grammar and industry phrasing, legal transcriptions sometimes require speech to be transcribed verbatim.
On the other hand, with legal documents, official letters, and legal briefings, Verbit will use proper legal wording and grammar in the final document to ensure a professional quality finished product. That’s the advantage of using three layers of quality control, with both AI and the skills of two transcriptionists for every document. There’s no doubt the context, type of transcription, and each nuance will be flawlessly accurate, offering legal professionals an unprecedented level of confidence in their documents and reports.
It’s not just lawyers that benefit from speedy and reliable legal transcription services. Everyone in the legal field benefits from fast, accurate transcriptions that help legal professionals meet deadlines and court cases proceed in a timely manner.
Solicitors: Solicitors rely on transcribed documents to help them gather information for their cases, saving them time when preparing information. Solicitors can submit digital audio files of their dictations on the Verbit platform and quickly receive an accurate transcribed report.
Lawyers: Lawyers and legal aids need high quality, well-written documents to use in their work. With Verbit, they can submit audio recordings of defendants, expert witnesses, and plaintiffs to be transcribed. They can also dictate information, which can then be transcribed. With the latest in Adaptive Automated Speech Recognition Technology and Verbit’s sophisticated AI algorithms, even complex or difficult-to-understand recordings can be quickly and accurately transcribed.
Law libraries: Law libraries are the ultimate research source for law clerks, lawyers, law students, and judges. With transcription and closed captioning services, law libraries can provide reports, court arguments, and video or audio learning materials in an accessible format for everyone in the field, including those with a hearing impairment.
Finance and banking professionals: The banking industry is one in which laws are constantly changing, which can make it a challenge for industry professionals to keep up. Transcriptions for recordings of meetings, conferences, and official reports or updates on laws in finance and banking can be a huge time saver. The transcriptions can be used to review the details of new banking legislation or new regulations. Professionals can also include the material in other documentation such as press releases or internal reports.
Corporate requirements: Industries across the board may require legal transcription services for things like claims interviews, transcripts of HR interviews, or other types of communication that may be necessary to record and transcribe for legal issues, or to have ready in case legal issues arise.
Today more than ever before video recordings are used for legal purposes. From dash cam and body cam videos taken by police officers to personal smartphone videos taken to record potentially relevant events or exchanges, videos play an important role in some types of court cases. But this also increases the need for closed captioning services.
Whether it’s a video recording of a police interrogation, evidence of an event in question, videos of court proceedings, or even educational video content for training or learning purposes, closed captioning makes it possible to know what is being said within a video.
The video can then be used as a more useful piece of evidence or learning material. It can also help legal professionals save time as they can hone in on key points in a video recording without having to figure out or question what’s being said.
Today’s legal professionals have an extremely high standard when it comes to transcriptions. Legal documents must be accurate. They have to capture the nuances of speech for some transcriptions and correct documents for grammar and legal terminology in other cases. And most importantly, they must be produced quickly so they don’t risk slowing down the legal process.
