The Court of Common Pleas of Bucks County employs 21 full-time Official Court Reporters.  The reporters are assigned to courtrooms to record testimony, argument or other spoken presentations heard by Common Pleas judges throughout the Seventh Judicial District.

Investing in their personal computerized stenotype machines, the Official Court Reporters utilize Computer Aided Transcription (CAT), the standard of accuracy for a record on appeal, to create transcripts.  The verbatim testimony of the court proceeding is recorded by the Official Reporter in criminal and civil proceedings.  Once transcribed, the court reporter certifies the accuracy of transcriptions.

A number of Official Reporters have been additionally certified in producing “real time” transcripts which is the immediate transcription of the verbatim testimony being taken in the courtroom.  The simultaneous transcription is used to assist hearing-impaired individuals in the courtroom by immediately providing testimony on a computer screen.
