Speech Recognition and Court Reporting
Advancements in the accuracy of speech recognition technology has increased the use of speech recognition software by voice writers, and the technology has been steadily moving away from the bleeding edge to the cutting edge.
While speech recognition technology has been around for decades, digital recording, vastly improved computers, and highly upgraded speech engines, make the process far more precise and reliable when coupled with specialized CAT software, allowing the output of voice writing to be viewed in real time. The ability for real time voice writing opens further work possibilities to the verbatim voice writer in the fields of CART and captioning services.
