Inside Court Reporting

Court reporters produce a complete and accurate written record of court proceedings. They might also provide closed-captioning and other translating services for the deaf. Court reporters work in courtrooms, government agencies, the U.S. Congress and state government offices. They might also be required to provide transcription services for depositions or conversations between judges and witnesses. Court reporters can choose to be self-employed, working in a variety of settings and determining their own rate of pay and work schedule.
