Stenographers, who have been around for centuries, play a crucial role in the courtroom process. Over the past five years, demand for stenographic services has subdued, as courts have increasingly cut back expenses amid massive budget cuts. More courts have been outfitting their courtrooms with digital recording systems, thus replacing the need for in-person stenographers.
