Course Overview

This self-paced, home study program is designed to train beginning students to be real-time writing steno machine writers, and prepare them for careers in court reporting, broadcast (closed) captioning, and CART providing. As they write on the steno machine, the words appear in English on a computer screen or a television screen. These exciting careers are in demand and provide job security.

Court reporting allows individuals to work for agencies/firms, the government, or to own their own business as a freelance court reporter. Closed captioning, writing the captions beneath television programs for hearing impaired persons, allows individuals to work entirely from home. CART (Communications Access Real-time Translation) is primarily writing for hearing impaired students and may be accomplished by working entirely from home or going to the assignment.

Program Objectives

Job Outlook

Employment of court reporters is expected to grow by 14 percent from 2010 to 2020, as fast as the average for all occupations. Demand for court reporter services will be influenced by new federal legislation requiring increased captioning for the Internet and other technologies. Those with experience and training in techniques for helping deaf and hard-of-hearing people, such as real-time captioning and Communication Access Real-Time Translation (CART), will have the best job prospects. The median annual wage for court reporters was ,700 in May 2010.
