When I was in high school, I wanted to be a court reporter. The problem was, it wasn't a widely advertised profession. There were few schools that offered a court reporting program.
I didn't know any court reporters, so I couldn't ask questions that aren't answered by a pamphlet. Is court reporting worth the effort? Is it a good job if you have young children? What types of things do you do as a court reporter?
There is a lot of information about court reporting out there, but sometimes it's easier to talk to an actual reporter who's been there. And if you don't know a court reporter personally, it can be difficult to find answers to your questions.
I've written this article to answer your basic questions about court reporting if you're considering it as a career.
Court reporting doesn't just take place in the courtroom. By being a court reporter, you can work from home as a captioner, be an angel to a student in a classroom, or find out the juicy details of a high profile trial.
Thank you! I hope you get out of school quick!
Excellent information! As I am studying to become a court reporter
Many thanks! I'd never have gotten that in a year of guesses! Guess you can see why I'm no stenographer...
It says What Do Court Reporters Do
Now, I'm no stenographer, so please translate the header picture, if it means anything at all? I struggled with Teeline shorthand in college and eventually decided that audio typing was more my bag.
You're welcome. I'm glad it helped you!
Thanks for this information! It's just what I was looking for!
