Ohio Valley Reporting can help in a long-distance deposition. Although we are located in Owensboro, Kentucky and often serve the Southern Indiana and Western Kentucky regions, we offer a virtual, video conference center, which allows us to serve those living in different states and time zones.

If I have a lengthy trial, lasting several days or months, are you available to provide daily transcripts?

Of course! Providing transcripts is something we specialize in. When you schedule a trial, let us know, and we would be happy to accommodate.

What do I get when I order an e-transcript? Am I able to get a paper copy later if I change my mind?

Ohio Valley Reporting offers full-size and condensed transcripts in any format, including ASCII formatted transcripts. We use e-Transcript by Real Legal, and can provide full-color exhibits and exhibits scanned to PDF. If you decide you would like a paper copy later, you can print a full-sized or condensed transcript from the electronic file we send. If you would prefer we print and bind it, we will just charge you our printing and postage costs.

What is video synchronization and do you offer it?

Video synchronization is when the text and video are synchronized, allowing the observer to see the written words and the deponent simultaneously as the video plays. It provides a quick method of searching the file, either by page and line number or keyword, giving you the ability to go directly to that point in the video. This technology allows you to create segments of any number of questions and answers and create a video with the segments you’ve chosen as well. Once done, you can play the segments back or put them into a presentation. 

Video synchronization is something Ohio Valley Reporting offers upon request.

What makes Ohio Valley Reporting the best choice for reporting over other agencies?

We take pride in providing quality reporting services at a rate consistent with or lower than others in the industry, and we don’t charge a travel fee.

We are able to take care of all of your needs, so there’s no need to call multiple reporting firms–we offer it all in one place. When you choose us, you gain access to our office, two conference rooms and virtual video conferencing. We also have three videographers in house, and all of our reporters are machine reporters and are actual trained court reporters.
