Verbatim court reporters (CRs) cover a myriad of assignments in any setting where a transcript of the spoken word is required. Our accredited CR members work in areas ranging from American depositions, arbitrations, public inquiries, and regulatory health hearings.

Many of our CRs also write realtime, which is when the spoken word appears as text on a device instantaneously. It is important to remember the purpose for which realtime transcription is used. In a hearing/tribunal setting, it enables the viewer:

  • to see and/or mark immediately what was said;
  • to search back simultaneously to cross-check against previous testimony (whether given on the same day or previously); and
  • probably most importantly, to have instantly a full note of what was said and the context in which it was said, rather than the perhaps scanty notes made by others in the room.

  • About Our Member

  • I started my Palantype training at Leeds Crown Court in 1986 and became a fully accredited Court Reporter in 1990, becoming a member of the Association of Shorthand Writers in the same year.

    In 1997 I began training to become a Speech to Text Reporter, and passed the CACDP (now Signature) Deaf Awareness Exam in 1999.

    I have also served on the council of both professional bodies, AVSTTR and BIVR, and I am currently a full member of BIVR.

    I have over 20 years’ experience captioning in various fields. This includes: various union conferences (e.g. UNISON, where I have captioned nearly all of their annual conferences for the last 20 years, and also the RCN); large tech conferences (e.g. Microsoft Future Decoded) and medical conferences (the British Cochlear Implant Group Annual Conference) and I also work for various local authorities, government and sporting bodies, arts organisations and various charities.

    I work mainly onsite, but also do provide a remote service when appropriate.
