It is good for a company that is proud of their product offerings to sing the praises of their know-how and ingenuity. However, it is oftentimes much more useful to hear the voices of one’s peers, people just like you that know the needs of court reporters and their clients and have come to StenoCast to meet those needs. We’ve selected a few testimonials that we felt provide insight from many perspectives.
Just wanted to let you know my Realtime TV had its maiden voyage today. I asked the attorney to give me feedback at the end of a very long day – as the “end user” she said it was the best realtime delivery system she had ever used. She loved the ease of the pause button, and then the ability to scroll quickly using the touch screen. Thanks for making me look so good!

The ease of just turning it on and the portability is great. If the judge is having problems with connectivity on his computer, I can just hand it up to him. If a juror had hearing issues, I can see it being a quick fix to get them to the next break when IT could set something up for them. The other day, I had an attorney who was hard of hearing just a touch. Our microphones were out and so it was difficult for her. Sometimes an attorney will come unprepared, maybe their laptop isn’t set up correctly, but they want realtime. This solves that issue until you can work around whatever is holding them back. What a good way for me to be an ambassador for realtime — just hand the device to them and let them use it during court.
I just wanted to thank you for providing such an easy to use and reliable product for realtime connectivity. From the prompt and courteous sales call-back, to quick overnight delivery, to ease of first-time setup (under two minutes!), I am truly impressed! Goodbye cables and hello RED!

I used the RED during a big realtime trial I did a year or so ago and loved it. I had some people on Bridge, some on CaseView and some on LiveNote. Worked great!

Thank you, Tiffany, for getting my StenoCast Red unit out to me so quickly. I can’t even begin to say what a great success it was in my courtroom here in the Eastern District of California, U.S. District Court. I helped get it set up for a coworker of mine who was doing seven days of realtime hookups on the water issues we have here in the Central Valley. There were probably about 25 to 30 attorneys at any one time, and many more litigation specialists in the courtroom. We ran both cable and used the four receivers that came with my Red. It was fun to see attorneys handing off their laptops to people in the back of the courtroom so they could use the realtime out of the well of the courtroom, and we had people asking, “Can I please have the wireless if someone else isn’t using it?” We could have had eight receivers and probably used them all! Needless to say, at about 275 pages a day, the reporter had a very lucrative week, and it was in great part due to the fact that Stenocast gave her the ability to give her clients what they needed.
Thanks, again, Tiffany! Your product made us look like pros!

In the last year I have lost the income from several potential realtime hookups because the attorney didn’t show up with the right hardware to connect with the cables. With the X7 and the Bridge software, provided at no cost by Advantage, that comes with it, any attorney with a computer can hook up. I used my X7 for the first time yesterday. The attorney was impressed with how easy the hookup was and two other attorneys in the room expressed an interest! I love it!

Finally, I am back in Japan and used the X7 system yesterday for the first time, with total success and satisfaction! You were right that it would still work inside the Embassy even though wireless internet does not.

StenoCast – It’s made of awesome!
Adam D. Miller, RPR, Miller Verbano Reporting
We all know how technology is advancing at such an exponential rate. I feel blessed that we have such reliable, cutting-edge products for our court reporting world, the StenoCast EDGE and StenoCast RED. You have truly perfected these magnificent wireless tools, and to think that the vast features can save a reporter from buying a new writer. I love how easy they are to operate. Kudos to your tech team for creating such high-quality wireless for us court reporters and end users – judges, attorneys, paralegals, etc.

Stenocast is a fantastic product that makes my court reporters’ lives easier – we no longer care about the attorneys’ lost or misplaced USB-to-serial cables.
