The court recorder

What are the tasks of a court recorder?
When witnesses are questioned or other evidence is gathered, it is important to record everything that is said and done in a case for future reference.

Documentation may be made by video-recording of hearings. Alternatively, the judge may dictate what is being said or done into a recording device.
Often there is a court recorder who is charged with documentation.

The recorder attends the evidence gathering or the hearing and records in writing the major facts, the statements of those being questioned, as well as what happens.
