The good news for court reporters and realtime writers is that there is no shortage of jobs if you are willing to travel and spend some time away from home and family. The need for reporters to fill vacancies for trials, grand jury hearings, mediations, and arbitrations is a common need across the country. At the present, there seems to be a high demand for those qualified to transcribe proceedings where there is a need to have a verbatim transcript produced and to perform real-time captioning and other services where speedy accurate writing is necessary. Court reporting, such as that found at Eagle Court Reporting, is a particularly valuable job though the court reporter is often overlooked due to their obscurity in the courtroom. The skills of court reporters at Alabama court reporting firms are in high demand, and due in part to the shortage of this highly skilled profession, a court reporter can fetch an annual income of an amount in excess of one hundred thousand dollars if they can become involved with the ìrightî law firm that schedules multiple depositions a week. When working full capacity, the Eagle Court Reporting court reporters will write hundreds of thousands of words per week and in excess of several millions of words in the span of a year. Freelance court reporters often earn three dollars and twenty-five cents a page that contains twenty-five lines.
It is not unusual for a deposition transcription to reach 200 pages, which would allow the court reporter to invoice an amount in excess of six hundred dollars for the original transcript alone. In addition to the original transcript, more often than not, there will be orders placed for copies by the opposing counsel. This can greatly inflate the amount earned by the court reporter. The assistant campus director at the Long Island Business Institute said the money earned can be phenomenal. She went on to say that students normally arrive at her school with zero experience with the stenograph which is comprised of twenty-six keys for stroking the words with letter combinations of letters. The technique is not called typing but instead writing and court reporters must reach a speed of two hundred and twenty-five words per minute in order to pass a test and be certified. At the time they are certified they can at that time enter the professional field. While an effort has been made to automate the court reporting profession, this effort has been rejected to a large part because of the need for a human touch.
By an audio recording alone, it can be very hard to distinguish between speakers and words can be muffled. The talents of the court reporter are necessary to distinguish and sometimes interpret slang which may be used by the deponent. While the sacrifices to have become a certified court reporter can and will be difficult, the rewards certainly justify the effort that is required for this profession.
