The Court Reporters shall record proceedings, which usually involve 11 to 15 active participants and an indeterminate number of witnesses.

From recordings and court documents, types or by other electronic means, Court Reporters produce a verbatim record of the proceedings in printed and MS Word formats with the responsibility for correct format, insertion of explanatory notes, attachment of description of all exhibits, proper arrangement of numerous documents, and indexing of the file.
Court Reporters shall be responsible for preparing and processing the record, including making necessary copies. The government will specify the type of court reporter required as transcriber, or voice writing/re-dictation reporter. Court Reporters shall be required to produce verbatim transcripts in written and digital (MS Word document unless otherwise specified) formats. All court reporters are responsible for accurate identification of proper names and places. Final records will be in the format specified by the government.
