What is live reporting?
Live reporting is the process of reporting in realtime. In a university environment, this is sometimes referred to as 'CART' (communication access realtime) reporting.
Skilled professionals, trained in high speed stenography (shorthand) or court reporting, use computer technology to document spoken words. Within just a few seconds, a written record can be read on a screen, be it a laptop or data projector.
Live transcription is also referred to as 'realtime reporting'.
How does live reporting work?
Anne attends your event (hearing, meeting, seminar, conference, research focus group) with her stenograph machine to write the dialogue live. The machine can be linked to a laptop, to translate shorthand symbols to text, and displayed onscreen as a transcript within seconds.
Live reporting advantages over audio equipment or voice recognition programs
Anne does not transcribe from sound recordings: the skill and expertise of a professional reporter outweighs the technology of audio equipment and voice recognition programs.
