Judicial journalists are the people who transcribe speech and record speeches into transcripts so that every trial that occurs in the courtroom is recorded. Their job is to ensure that these written records are 100% transcribed verbatim so that there is no question of what may have been said earlier in the trial.
Before the advent of computers and digital technology, stenographers used typewriters and shorthands to follow proceedings during the process. However, stenographers now have digital transcripts, so the process can be recorded verbatim with appropriate written notes.

Court reporting means the act of recording word-for-word spoken words, whether through the use of characters or electronic devices, in any proceedings pending in any court in that State, including any proceedings to be commenced in connection therewith for the use of the court itself and any proceedings required by law to be reported by a licensed court reporter.
Digital journalists record footage through disposable microphones that sit unobtrusively on a table. Deposition microphones are used exclusively in DR because of their ability to isolate the sound of each speaker. Each speaker's voice is then recorded on a separate channel. Channel splitting allows copyists to split the sound when people talk to each other. The digital reporter also records the timestamp during the deposit.
The verbatim transcription advantage that DR's enjoy can be attributed to their ability to listen to the actual testimony in digital-quality sound in order to proofread the transcription text via the audio file. This important step allows the transcriber to check the accuracy of the words themselves, not just grammatical accuracy.
