FTR RealTime

Leverage the advantages of a searchable, digital record of legal proceedings in real time.

FTR RealTime transforms the spoken word into text within seconds, delivering a searchable, written record to authorized participants in the courtroom and beyond. The output is up to 95% accurate and includes highly accurate speaker attribution.  

FTR RealTime enhances the accessibility of court proceedings and the usability of official court recordings, allowing authorized participants to review testimony, define trial strategy, and engage meaningfully during proceedings. 

The sophisticated tool leverages natural language processing, a field of artificial intelligence, and incorporates a real-time recorder. This means it can maintain pace with the spoken word, even while processing accents, complex legal terminology, and people speaking simultaneously. It also precisely pairs text with audio and video recordings for verification, transparency, and further analysis.   

While it does not produce certified transcripts, the access provided by FTR RealTime can reduce the reliance on certified transcripts—and the significant costs to produce them. 

FTR RealTime supports court staff by: 

Bridging the gap between audio recording and the certified transcript

Facilitating easier access to official court content, such as audio/video recordings synced with searchable rough draft transcripts

Elevating operations within courtrooms and boosting efficiencies

Addressing the labor gap issues that many courts are experiencing across the US and the world

This automated, speech-to-text technology unlocks actionable insights within the record and provides unprecedented access for all court participants, both during and after legal proceedings. 

FTR RealTime is powered by FTR Justice Cloud and has been developed specifically for legal justice settings to create efficiencies, enhance legal proceedings, and support access to justice.
