There is a current shortage of Certified Realtime Court Reporters and Captioners.

Schedule an interview to qualify for this exciting career using high-tech translation software from the stenographic machine, which is supplied by the school, to your laptop.  Work in the legal field, travel the world, or work in Broadcast Captioning.  With so few realtime reporters currently available, once this skill is acquired, the demand is high for employment.
