Our Digital Journey
Beginning in 1921 as the Commonwealth Reporting Service, today we are recognised by the likes of the Financial Review as one of Australia’s most innovative and entrepreneurial companies.
Tony Douglass and Peter Wyatt purchased Auscript in 2004. They combined their skills in music recording and risk management to transform transcription from a delayed analogue process into a fast digital one that produces crisp audio and accurate transcripts.
When Peter and Tony purchased Auscript, staff had to physically run tapes between courthouses and our offices in order to transcribe the tape recorded audio. As the day got shorter so too did the tapes! It was the sight of the Auscript office hallways lined with jogging shoes that inspired Peter and Tony’s plan to remove the outdated analogue scheme and introduce the world’s first digital recording and transcript production methodology.
Thanks to their ingenuity, clients now have instant and secure access to the court record, providing them with the flexibility to follow matters from anywhere, anytime.
In 2013, Peter and Tony purchased For The Record (FTR), combining the people and digital expertise across both companies to become a world leader in digital court recording and transcription. Peter and Tony have transformed how courts capture, access, distribute and publish the court record.
Together, Auscript and For The Record have harnessed digital technology to increase the speed of delivery and quality of the court record and realised huge efficiencies by removing geography as a resourcing constraint. We’ve developed software that moved digital recordings from the courtroom to the Court Reporter in near real-time.
From shorthand note taking to Real-Time transcription and HD audio/video capture, Auscript and For The Record have shared a wave of transformation in court recording and transcription. We continue to pioneer new ways to do more with digital.
