This week, the NCRA STRONG Committee reached out to all state bar associations asking them to publish an article written by several of its members. The article is intended to help educate attorneys and consumers about the risks associated with using digital recording, artificial intelligence, or automated speech recognition to capture the most accurate record in legal proceedings.
The request was sent with the hopes that the article will appear in May publications to coincide with NCRA’s fourth Celebrate Certification Month. The STRONG Committee also aims to educate consumers of stenographic court reporting services about the importance of working with a professional who holds a nationally recognized professional certification such as those offered by NCRA.
The NCRA STRONG Committee was created to promote stenographic captioning and reporting as the best means to maintain the accuracy and integrity of the record. The STRONG Committee’s goal is to educate consumers of stenographic court reporting services about the shortfalls of using any digital, electronic, or artificial intelligence method to capture the official record. The accuracy and quality of a human court reporter’s skills can never be matched or replaced by any of the methods noted above for a number of reasons.
Resources created by the STRONG Task Force to promote stenographic captioning and reporting as the best means to maintain the accuracy and integrity of the record are available at NCRA.org.
