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 began training to be a Palantypist in Aug 1990 straight after finishing A'levels at school. I worked at Snaresbrook Crown Court and then after qualifying in 1993 I went to work at the Old Bailey. After transferring companies and moving to work at Courts in Essex for a few year, in 1998 I started to branch into STTR and live captioning work and have done mainly that ever since. I am a member of BIVR, AVSTTR and I am NRCPD registered.

    I'm interested in deaf and disability issues. I've been learning British Sign Language for 18 months. I like to travel, especially to seaside resorts. I do regular bookings in London, Kent and Brighton but can be persuaded to work anywhere.

    I love animals and have a small zoo at my house.
