Court reporters produce verbatim transcripts of all court hearings, meetings, speeches, conversations, and other pertinent events (Truity, 2020). Court reporters use specialized equipment to record dialogue and conversations during depositions, hearings, proceedings, and other events in a case. These tools include video and audio recording devices, stenography machines, and covered microphones (Truity, 2020). In addition to recording the speaker's name, actions, and gestures, a court reporter will take care to ask a speaker to explain any inaudible or unintelligible words (Truity, 2020).
