Court Reporting Opportunities
Becoming a court reporter differs everywhere. However, the basic learning required is the same.
An aptitude for words and language as well as an interest in the law is helpful to make the job interesting and fulfilling.
Reporters are required to be excellent researchers and meticulous proofreaders in order to complete a good transcript.
Typing skills are a must, and computer knowledge is necessary because technology is driving our industry. A student reporter learns a form of shorthand on a steno machine.
Once the shorthand is mastered, practice is essential to obtain the minimum required speeds of between 180-200 words per minute. This process can take anywhere from 1 to 3 years.
