  • About Our Member

  • I began my stenography training in 1995 and started working as a realtime court reporter in London in 1996, working in the Royal Courts of Justice and the Old Bailey.

    These days I primarily provide live remote captioning (also known as remote speech-to-text or CART services) from my home in Wiltshire. As owner/director of Osmond Reporting Ltd, recently trading as SubText Live Captioning, I provide live captions to big or small screens for conference calls, meetings, lectures, webcasts, conferences – any setting where high quality audio is available – as well as streaming live captions for tablet tours and talks in museums, galleries and other art venues. I also deliver live TV broadcast subtitles along with more traditional fast turnaround transcription services in the legal field and beyond.

    I am a Registered NRCPD Speech-to-Text Reporter and I've passed the following Quality Realtime Reporter examinations: QRR1 (with Distinction), QRR2 (with Distinction) and QRR3. Additionally, I am a Certified Realtime Captioner (CRC) with the National Court Reporters Association, USA.

    I am happy to mentor steno students who might be in need of advice and encouragement whilst training in this challenging but highly rewarding career.
