What is Court Reporting?
Court Reporting involves using shorthand skills and a stenotype machine to transcribe spoken or recorded speech into a written document, creating the official transcript for court proceedings, hearings, testimonies, etc. Court Reporters play a critical role in the legal system and are in high demand across the country. Court Reporters are employed by court reporting companies for court systems or may work on a freelance basis. Also, they may find work captioning spoken words for the deaf or hard-of-hearing for television or public events.
