Taking Notes


Court Recorder 9 has built-in features for quickly taking timestamped notes. Use Docket Templates to add case and exhibit information with one click. Macro expansion codes and function keys can be used to enter common phrases. Spellings, inaudibles, and other events can be typed manually as needed for transcription.

Fast Readbacks


For courts and depositions that require court reporters to read back testimony, Court Recorder 9 includes features that make performing readbacks fast and easy. The court reporter can be entering notes for each question and answer, making it effortless to locate the exact spot to play back. The audio can be previewed on headphones and then played back into the room. Court Recorder 9 continues to record while reading back, capturing any comments made in the room while playback occurs.

Transcribing and Archiving


Recordings can be transcribed using the included Transcriber Live software, providing an on-screen simulation of a traditional cassette transcriber. This includes USB foot pedal control, playback speed adjustment, and Voice Boost audio enhancement. SoniClear uses standard audio files that can be played using any brand of transcription software, when overflow work or rush jobs require using an outside transcribing service.

Recordings can be configured to archive manually or automatically to a network storage location. Recordings can also be sent to transcriptionists via the Internet, on CD, or on Flash drives.
