Court Reporters have a major role in the accurate and timely reporting of events that shape business, law and politics. This is a career field that affects Business, Law, and Politics and makes a huge impact on people’s lives.
Court Reporters use a stenotype machine to create verbatim transcripts of speeches, conversations, legal proceedings and meetings. The role of a court reporter is not only important in judicial proceedings but also in any occasion where the spoken word must be recorded and available as a written transcript.
