NCRA is collecting confirmed reports of digital audio recording failures, and they have requested each individual state submit these reports to them, so we can aggregate evidence to help us counter common arguments that digital reporting companies make.  If you hear of such failures in Illinois, please submit them to Region 2 Representative-Official Kim Cottrell.  Her contact information is in the sidebar in this newsletter.

ILCRA recently published a lovely graphic illustrating the difference between stenotype reporting and digital reporting, which was developed by Region 1 Representative-Freelance Mary Ann Casale. That brochure can be found here.
