Tape recordings in court
It is absolutely essential that you transcribe any recordings you want to use and enter the transcriptions into your case file.
Judges and evaluators rarely want to listed to hours of tapes. With a transcript you can highlight important items and use flags so that a quick browse will bring out the important items.
The original tape will only be referred to if there is a disagreement about the transcription, or if you need it to show tone of voice or nuances that don’t show up in the transcript.
