Different technologies preserve court records



Iarocci got her start as a court reporter after hearing a lecture during her senior year at the Ashtabula County Joint Vocational School.

She said she enjoys all the experiences that occur during a trial that help explain what is going on in the world.

Iarocci said court reporters are trained in how to be “guardians of the court record,” apply ethical neutrality to their jobs, handle evidence and many other important tasks.

“We aren’t only court reporters we know everything that is going on,” Iarocci said.

Tisch said different studies have provided different conclusions relating to whether digital recording saves money. She said new technology will allow an expert witness to testify from another city through video.

Nettles said she enjoys her job because every day is different even though she is performing the same task.

The court reporters are very proud of their profession. “It has yet to be shown, or proven, that we, the stenographic reporters, are not the very best and most efficient keepers of the records. So, as the old saying goes, ‘Why try to fix something that was never broken?’” Iarocci asked.
