The criminal justice system is highly dependent on the accurate record-keeping that is usually provided by court reporters in order to adequately serve the criminal justice system and the community. Court reporters may provide exact transcriptions of court proceedings, depositions, board meetings, and other events where multiple parties may need faithful records of what was said and done.
To be a skillful court reporter, one must have an excellent knowledge of the English language, legal and medical terminology, and court reporting technology, as well as fast typing skills. Court reporters must be meticulous in their work, have an exceptional attention to detail, and the ability to concentrate for long periods of time.
Court reporting training programs may provide the necessary foundation in legal and medical terminology, as well as stenographic reporting, real-time court reporting, and voice writing technology and skills to begin a career in court reporting.
