The exciting career you should
Court reporting, also known as stenography, is the art of transcribing the
spoken word at 225 words per minute using a stenotype machine. Court
reporters provide verbatim transcripts for trials, depositions, and court
proceedings. They also provide captioning for television and webcasting,
and realtime translation for the hearing impaired.
Stenographers provide verbatim transcripts and real-time captioning from
exciting venues like courtrooms, schools, sports stadiums, and even home.
Some of them even get to do so internationally!
With the number of active reporters retiring, and the lack of qualified
reporters to take over, there will be an estimated 5,000 court reporting job
openings in the next few years. And because electronics can’t ensure or
testify to the accuracy of the words or
punctuation they’re capturing, court
reporters are indispensable.
Court Reporting is a career with a lucrative
salary potential. Salaries differ based on
where you work, however, the Bureau of
Labor Statistics reports that the annual mean
wage for Court Reporters in New York in
2017 was $89,140.

diverse community. Whether you’re looking
to start your career, change your career, or
add a second job to your existing career,
