Transcript management and ordering—automated and transformed

Everything about For The Record’s Transcript Express platform is transformative. The world’s first and only fully automated system for managing court recording and transcript orders creates efficiencies within the court system and provides the public with faster access to the court record.

Transcript Express has recast and reformed outdated delivery of court recordings and transcripts. Manual and time-consuming processes involved in locating, managing, ordering, distributing, and archiving are now simplified and streamlined.

The completely integrated solution also serves as a contact-free, online portal to the court record, for the judiciary, court administration, legal teams, transcribers, and the public.

The court record, including audio/video recordings and transcripts, is delivered quickly, more efficiently, and with complete visibility—and automatically archived for a repository of court records.
