What is digital reporting?

The American Association of Electronic Reporters and Transcribers (AAERT) describes digital reporting as the “use of professional-level audio recording systems to register court proceedings.” Certified Electronic Reporters (CERs) are qualified, carefully trained professionals who are certified by the AAERT. They use state-of-the-art recording equipment and cutting-edge technology to capture proceedings, adhering to both local and nationally recognized best practices.

The highest calling of a professional court reporter is the preservation of the record. At U.S. Legal Support, we take pride in ensuring the accuracy of the record is maintained, regardless of the methodology used. With the pace of litigation continuing to increase, to help fulfill the growing demand for capturing and transcribing legal proceedings, ­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­we employ Certified Electronic Reporters as a supplemental resource to our valued Stenographer and Voice Writer partners.
