An industry that has seen significant growth over the past several years in the legal industry is that of closed caption writers Alabama court reporting. The main reason for the specific growth in this area is the need that has developed in the field of writing for television programs wherein the spoken words of the programs are simultaneously written as the program narrator speaks the words. This has come about in part because of the Americans with Disability Act, which stipulates that those with handicaps must be afforded the same opportunity to the features of programming that those individuals who are not handicapped have. One example of the use of this skill being used will be when the Super Bowl kicks off here in a couple of weeks. Handicapped viewers across the nation and even around the world will have an opportunity to ìhearî the broadcast of the game through the feature of closed captioning. Not only will these individuals be settling in with their chips, buffalo wings, and favorite drink.

The people providing the closed captioning will be settling into their chairs to provide this vital service. Real-time closed captioning will be viewed by more than thirty-seven million people. One person who provides this service is Media Access Group and several other individuals across the nation. While the captions are critical for the hearing impaired community, they will also be used by viewers watching the game n noisy public spaces, including bars, airports, and gyms. When this group of viewers is included, the number using this service may exceed one hundred million worldwide. So, what does it take t successfully provide this service for one of the biggest cultural events in the United States? Preparation is the key. Before the game, the writers will spend time studying up on all of the coaches and players on each team so that the writer will be ready to write about anyone whom the announcers mention.

The CART writer also will be familiar with all sorts of Super Bowl history, including the names of past most valuable players, passing leaders, rushing leaders, coaches with the most wins and on and on. By having this familiarity the writer can be prepared to make the necessary strokes on his or her stenograph to convey the verbiage to the viewer. Being prepared is a large part of being a real-time writer. Real-time writing is also known as live writing requires a unique skill set as well as a tremendous talent of hand and thought coordination. The live writer must process each word as it is spoken in rapid succession and more often than not by different speakers. Tremendous concentration is required full time during the writerís work time. Experience is certainly key as it is in many professions, but the writer must also have the ability to develop a cadence of the method in which the broadcasters speak.

To get the captions to your television, stenographers use a special keyboard that utilizes phonetics, allowing them to form words quickly based on sounds rather than typing out individual letters. The writers also use specialized software that has special dictionaries for each type of broadcast event. For example, for the Super Bowl, the writer will have a sports dictionary which helps in reducing the number of strokes the writer must use in order to convey the entire text of what is being said.
