Recording Agents are an industry-first, certified service available exclusively from TheRecordXchange (TRX). If you’re a litigator who orders depositions, the Recording Agent service is a revolutionary way for you to lower overall deposition costs and make “go/no-go” litigation decisions sooner than possible using older, traditional methods used to capture deposition proceedings.
TRX has created the new “Recording Agent” (RA) role which consists of a TRX-certified independent business professional who appears at your deposition at the prescheduled date/time/venue with a small, self-contained, TRX-approved digital recording system.
The RA sets the compact recording unit up including two small mics in under ten minutes, and then manages the deposition proceeding from the perspective of insuring that the highest quality recording of the event is captured, along with the necessary swearing-in of witnesses and expert handling of exhibits.
To qualify to be an RA, potential candidates must already be state-registered Notary Publics with years of experience. Then they must complete a TRX-certified training program which includes:
Once your deposition is completed, usually the same day following the deposition, unlike with traditional court reporting, TRX VoiceCopy is made available to you from your original deposition order which consists 1) of a copy of the recorded audio of the deposition along with 2) AI-generated text of the words spoken synced to the audio. You can play and review the recording and text along with sharing your order with others on your team giving them access too.
And VoiceCopy is included as part of the base RA service which is commensurate with the base cost of traditional court reporting appearance fees which do not include any deliverables.
The most exciting and key element to the RA service is that, in addition to the audio you will also have access to the AI-generated text of the spoken words in the deposition whereby:
TRX has performed extensive testing and development of its proprietary algorithms coupled with the Amazon Transcribe™ speech-to-text technology to deliver superior results within multi-speaker court and deposition recording venues. And fundamental to the RA service, TRX understands the absolute need of having an experienced RA in the room who can insure that recording procedures and participant behaviors are followed to further insure a quality recording to maximize the accuracy of the speech-to-text recognition.
The VoiceCopy text is not a replacement for certified transcript, but with its impressive accuracy, quick availability and being dynamically synced to the audio renders it a more powerful and comprehensive review tool which results in fewer orders of costly certified transcript. However, if at such point following review of the text and audio you decide that a certified transcript transcribed from the audio will be needed, one can be ordered from an independent Legal Transcription professional experienced with federal and state court audio transcription requirements at the click of a button and at cost commensurate with steno court reporting transcript. Effectively TRX has removed the risk that higher cost could result by leveraging the Recording Agent service should a certified transcript be ordered.
Now, for the first-time litigators can have both audio and text available to them in rapid turnaround purposed for review. Having the ability to perform a full deposition review and generate a comprehensive deposition summary using these resources gives you, the litigator, the ability to determine your go/no-go litigation strategy much quicker while reducing the number of costly certified transcripts you might otherwise order, resulting in literally thousands of dollars saved.
