Considering A Court Reporting Career? Is Technology A Threat?

However, with technology advancing by leaps and bounds, the days when a court reporter would transcribe proceedings by hand (or even use a manual typewriter) are long gone. Many modern court reporters utilize voice-recognition software, cloud storage and sharing of transcripts, and other high-tech options that can enable them to quickly and accurately generate a transcript of court proceedings.
