The Michigan Association of Professional Court Reporters would like to set the record straight by declaring We Are Technology!
The court reporting profession has been an ever-evolving career from the beginning of time until today and will continue to evolve and progress into the future. Today’s realtime court reporter utilizes a high-tech steno machine and computer installed with state-of the-art software. Realtime court reporters continue to remain an imperative presence in the legal profession as official and freelance court reporters.
The profession has also branched out and filled a vital service-oriented need through broadcast captioning, CART writing, and webcast writing for a deaf or hearing-impaired individual where the realtime writer will use a computerized steno machine and realtime software to provide captions to the television viewer of live supporting events, news programs, and emergency broadcasting.
