Court Reporters can Hear a lot of Junk, but we can Help Holocaust Survivors Preserve their Story Messy divorces, murders, child custody battles, and slip and fall accidents are just a handful of cases court reporters can sit through.

Unique Court Reporter Christmas Ornament...
Court reporting is not a mainstream profession. I mean, how many kids do you know that say they want to be a court reporter when they grow up? Heck, most of them don’t even know what we do or that the job even exists. So it’s no surprise that it’s next to impossible to find […]
Hypnosis for Court Reporters: Does it Wo...
Does Hypnosis for Court Reporters Work? Hypnosis for court reporters is an iffy subject for some. I’ve talked to some reporters who swear by it, and others who think it works because it’s all in somebody’s head. I’ve been on both sides of the fence. When I was in the latter speed classes in court reporting […]
Everyone Deserves Captioned Programming
I recently got back from an out-of-the-country trip. While it wasn’t to a third world country, it did give me as an American perspective. We’re spoiled. We’re fat. We’re American.

You as a court reporting student receive nothing but encouragement from your teachers, friends and family, and from those of us who are out in the professional steno world. You’re constantly told you can do this, you can learn […]
Just for Crafty Steno Nerds: Court Repor...
Well, today was my first ever day captioning live on the air. Never have I been so excited, yet so nervous in my life! Things went pretty well, though, and I only had a slight audio problem on my second show. It wouldn’t connect! It didn’t kick in until about 30 seconds in to the […]
Court Reporting: It’s not just for Court
What do Court Reporters Do? In social situations, the subject of what do you do for a living invariably comes up. When I was a reporter, it never ceased to amaze me the responses I’d get when I told them I was a court reporter. “Oh, you sit in court all day.” “Don’t you get […]
The One Steno Gadget I’d Sell My Kid For
Happy Day 4 of Court Reporting and Captioning Week! Today I want to share with you something I would walk through shards of glass to get to. Heck, I’d sell my kid to get another one. Curious about what it is? It’s my Diamante. I’d had a Mira A3 for a years and I loved […]
