Using My Smartphone to Its Full Potential
A few months ago I extolled the benefits of technology and specifically the smartphone. My smartphone of choice is the iPhone, and I utilize its features every day.
The certified court reporters of Omega Reporting strive to ensure our clients have the ultimate experience with us at each deposition we attend. When I arrive at the depo and after introductions with all parties present, I request the caption of the case if one wasn’t provided to me previously. I then proceed to use the camera functionality on my iPhone to take a snapshot of the pleading.
Attorneys often comment how that is such a cool way to capture the information versus the usual pen and paper method. The act of that one simple step, I feel, elevates and highlights me as a proficient and highly skilled court reporter which, in turn, may bring my name to the forefront of their minds when booking their next deposition. The legal landscape is constantly changing and we, as court reporters, need to keep abreast of changes in order to stay relevant as time and technology leaps ahead!
