Courts note an increase in audio technology usage amid coronavirus (COVID-19)

HM Courts and Tribunals Service (HMCTS) has released updated figures on use of technology within the justice system amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The new data focuses specifically on telephone and video data. Notable from the statistics is that during April 2020, video technology accounted for approximately one-third of the use of remote communications technology across courts and tribunals, while audio technology accounted for approximately two-thirds. HMCTS has advised that the data be interpreted with caution, particularly because the figures were drawn together quickly and are based on operational reports from individual courts and tribunals during a period of intense urgent activity.
