Accurate transcripts within seconds of the spoken word.

FTR RealTime is a world first—justice-specific AI that records proceedings and generates draft text transcripts that are immediately available to authorized court participants.   

With transcript accuracy up to 95%, FTR RealTime produces a rough draft intended for functional use. For example, giving judges the ability to review testimony and arguments during the proceedings; helping lawyers spot inconsistencies in testimony during trials; or providing inclusive access for a trial participant who is deaf or hard of hearing.

Authorized court participants who are accessing the FTR RealTime live feed can watch the words appear on the screen instantaneously, mere seconds after they were uttered in the courtroom. 

The transcript is also synced with audio and video recordings, for a more contextualized understanding of proceedings.

Immediate, rough transcripts at a fraction of the cost.

To increase the accessibility and searchability of official court recordings, FTR QuickDraft syncs time-stamped audio and video with a highly accurate (up to 95%), speaker-designated (up to 100% accurate) speech-to-text output.

FTR QuickDraft provides fast access to an uncertified transcript that is on par with traditional rough transcripts, but at fraction of the cost. Using innovative Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) technology that is informed by legal terminology and built to process accents, FTR QuickDraft delivers a rough draft that accurately captured what was said, when, and by whom. 

Judges can export export drafts to prepare sentencing remarks, judgements, and rulings during the proceedings, or while waiting for certified transcripts. Attorneys have access to the same rough transcripts for nightly preparations or to guide trial strategy in court.
