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 my UK career in 1996 as a Court Reporter after training in the United States producing delayed and realtime transcripts, arbitrations, disciplinary hearing and depositions. I am currently doing Speech-to-Text in office meetings, union and corporate conferences, AGMs, training courses, board meetings, seminars, one-to-one peer reviews, comedy, university seminars/lectures, after-dinner speeches, disability panel discussions either onsite or remotely or to big screen. I can work anywhere a verbatim realtime note needs to be taken.
    I was President of BIVR in 2018.

    I am NRCPD registered since 2009.

    I passed BIVR's QRR1* (i.e., with distinction)
