Often, matters requiring speech to text expert witness services involve intellectual property, such as patent infringement litigation or trade secret disputes.
Litigation support by a speech to text expert witness could include computer software analysis, forensic analysis, deposition testimony, an expert report, expert opinion, and expert witness testimony in court. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request a testifying expert with prior litigation experience. A speech to text expert needs to not only have substantive expertise but must also possess the ability to explain expert evidence to a juror and judge. In addition, clients often seek a speech to text expert for consultant work for pre-litigation tasks.
