Best Practices Guide-v2019

This guide covers a wide range of professional standards laid out by AAERT. Whether you are a reporter, transcriber, or both, we all share a professional goal: turning human communications (messy, “non-literary,” and disorganized, as they almost always are!) into a permanently accessible legal record. Our transcripts must present an undistorted, reliable reflection of proceedings, and at the same time be useful and helpful to our clients.
