Courtroom Technology: e-Exhibits  All courtrooms in Austin, El Paso, San Antonio, and Waco support the ability to display exhibits electronically.  Using a notebook computer it is possible to present multimedia presentations, images, or documents on the display monitors in the courtroom. Parties with cases being heard in the equipped courtrooms are encouraged to bring in their laptops to utilize this feature. Prior to court, contact the appropriate courtroom deputy, to ensure that your laptop or tablet is compatible with the system in the courtroom.  Click here to find out more about scheduling a test time and for further information.

Digital Audio Files: As of May 5, 2014, we’ll be providing digital audio recordings of court proceedings via the PACER system.  In March 2010, the Judicial Conference approved the plan to make digital audio recordings available on PACER after a two year pilot project showed significant public interest in accessing these files.  Prior to the pilot, access was only possible by obtaining a CD recording from a court clerks office for $30. The new digital files will cost $2.40 to download. The presiding judge will determine which audio recordings will be posted on PACER.  Please click here for more information.
