If the mechanics of court reporting interest you but the courtroom just isn’t your scene, not to worry, says the Stenotype Institute, Florida’s top court reporting school. There are multiple avenues of work for those with the stenographic training and skills that court reporters use every day.
- Legal Offices: Many trained court reporters work in attorney’s offices, taking dictation of depositions, interrogatories, arbitration hearings and other pretrial proceedings.
- Corporate Offices: Companies often employ stenographers to take dictation of business meetings and negotiations, board meetings, employee conferences.
- Events: Live events that also are aired on television or via streaming video to monitors or to the web often hire court reporters or closed captioning specialists to provide real-time captioning. These events can include religious services, webcasts, conferences, educational lectures or programs, and awards or graduation services.
- TV Stations and Production Companies: Television program producers and distributors increasingly are in need of closed captioning specialists to provide captioning for deaf and hearing-impaired viewers. Bilingual captionists also are needed to provide foreign language captioning of films and television programs for global distribution.
- Deaf and Hearing-Impaired: Realtime or CART reporters also find rewarding careers in translating for the deaf and hearing-impaired, helping them complete school and college classes and succeed at work.
