What Is Digital Reporting?



WHAT IS A DIGITAL REPORTER?

A Digital Reporter ("DR") is a trained officiant who captures the verbatim record of a deposition orĀ other legal proceeding, via high quality digital audio equipment. As litigation continues to rise nationwide, and the technology used to capture testimony evolves, there is a tremendous need for Digital Reporters.

Individuals interested in becoming a digital reporter can enroll in the Veritext Partner Program and learn the profession of digital reporting through practical and hands-on exposure, as well as ongoing support. Experienced reporters can apply and put their skills to work.

Applicants will be accepted by demonstrating experience through a Digital Reporting Assessment or by completing a pre-approved Digital Reporting Introduction course. Once experience has been verified, qualified participants new to the profession can complete the program in an average of four weeks. Digital reporting equipment will be required for program participation.

Upon successful completion of the program, a qualified new Digital Reporter will have the opportunity to work as an independent contractor and take remote and in-person assignments. APPLY NOW!

Testimonial Evidence Gathering

  • All evidence is supported by testimony
  • Depositions are proceedings where testimony is captured for the record
  • During a trial, witnesses cannot be called & evidence cannot be introduced unless it was legitimately captured.
  • Depositions take place whether a case goes to trial, settles before trial, or goes to arbitration.
