1 Is English one of your favorite classes? Do you like to write? Are you interested in laws and courts? Are you an excellent listener? Do you know how to use a computer well? If you can answer "yes" to these questions, court reporting might be a good career for you.
2 Court reporters make word-for-word reports of court cases. They must make a complete and accurate legal record of what has been said in court. They take statements for lawyers. They also make records of meetings and other events outside the courtroom. In some courts, they provide closed-captioning services for deaf and hard-of-hearing people.
3 Stenotyping and voice writing are the main methods of court reporting. A stenotype machine allows the court reporter to press more than one key at a time. The keys record symbols that represent sounds, words, or phrases. These symbols are saved on computer disks or CD-ROMs. They are then translated and displayed as text.
