About Us

Court reporting is a $5B+ industry in the United States, with demand steadily increasing and a growing shortage of qualified court reporters available. Parrot is addressing this critical gap in the market by bringing technology to modernize remote proceedings and the transcription process. The result is remote proceedings that are more effective and convenient, and transcriptions that are delivered faster, more accurately and with functionality that saves our customers time and money. Today, law firms, insurance companies, law enforcement and leading corporations rely on Parrot for depositions, examinations under oath, and hearings.
