What is Legal Transcription (LT)?

Legal transcription (LT) is turning voice-recorded legal activities, like court hearings and lawyer dictations, into written text. This process helps keep accurate legal records for future use, legal actions, and compliance.

How Legal Transcription Works

1. Receiving Voice Files

The Legal Transcription team, either within in a law firm or a through dedicated transcription company or platform, receives voice recordings from lawyers, court reporters, and other legal professionals. These recordings can be from court sessions, depositions, interrogations, client meetings, and more.

2. Transcribing Voice Files

Experienced transcriptionists listen to these recordings and type them into text. They need a good understanding of legal terms and procedures to ensure everything is correct and complete.

3. Digital Formatting

The typed legal documents are usually saved in digital formats. This makes it easy to add them to the law firm’s document management systems, ensuring authorized legal professionals can access them easily.

Modern Tools in Legal Transcription

Today, technology has brought in tools that make legal transcription more efficient and accurate:

Speech Recognition Software

This software can automatically convert spoken words into text. Although it speeds up the process, human transcriptionists still need to check and correct errors to ensure accuracy.
