Courtrooms and Staff
The Court of Common Pleas of Bucks County employs 22 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 provide “real time” transcription, which is the immediate translation of the verbatim testimony being taken in the courtroom. The simultaneous transcription is used by the Court and attorneys to immediately view the testimony on a computer screen and to access previous testimony. It is also used to assist hearing-impaired individuals in the courtroom by allowing them to read along with the proceedings as they are occuring.
