Are you looking for a new way to use your skills as a court reporter? We’re now offering expanded real-time reporting services to our clients and would love to talk to you about your experience as an Oklahoma court reporter. Our clients are seeing value in the efficiency and accuracy of real-time reporting to help the clients of their legal practice.
Why Real-time Reporting Works
Realtime reporting works for our clients, and can for you too, because it enables teams to work collaboratively and more efficiently. No longer so they have to review a transcript or take their own copious notes to remember the most important portions of a deposition. Testimony can be highlighted and marked while the deposition is taking place and attorney notes can be merged into one document. That means instant access to a rough draft and ease of preparation for the next day’s depositions.
Benefits if Real-time Reporting
Ginger Baze, owner of Oklahoma City based Steno Services, notices attorneys who are open to using realtime reporting have some time adjusting to the new process and ultimately like improved quality, especially of video depositions. An expert witness could join a deposition with one-way viewing, scroll back to review previous testimony in the realtime feed and be caught up almost immediately.
How to Become a Certified Real-time Reporter (CRR)
If you are in good standing with the National Court Reporters Association (NCRA) and a current Registered Professional Reporter (RPR), you are eligible to register to test to be a Certified Realtime Reporter (CRR). To pass the test, you have to accurately write real-time for five minutes at 96% accuracy at 200 wpm from a professionally recorded two-voice question and answer. Depending on your court reporting skills, you might consider becoming a real-time captioner testing at 180 wpm and 96% accuracy.
