The National Registers of Communication Professionals working with Deaf and Deafblind People (NRCPD) “exist to protect the public by regulating communication and language professionals who work with deaf and deafblind people.” This organisation has registrants from a number of professions, including Speech-to-Text Reporters, lipspeakers and sign language interpreters.

Whilst it is not currently mandatory for STTRs/captioners to be on the Register, many of our members are long-standing registrants and submit Continuing Professional Development units for this purpose.

  • Please note that I am only now available for some audio transcription work.

    I started my career in September 1971 as a pen shorthand writer in the Crown Courts (Quarter Sessions as then they were) on the North-Eastern Circuit. I travelled extensively between such courts from as far as Carlisle, Beverly, Hull, Leeds and Liverpool.

    In 1985 I made the decision to retrain as a CAT writer and so I moved to London. For five years I stayed in London during the week, worked for Virginia Wason at Southwark and retrained with Palantype - and travelled home (north-east) for the weekend.

    In 1990 I moved permanently to my current address. I stayed with Virginia Wason until she lost the contract.

    In 1992 I started work at the Royal Courts of Justice as the shorthand writer to Lord Taylor CJ. I have been with all Lord Chief Justices since then. I also cover other courts when the Lord Chief Justice does not sit and fit in some audio transcription work.

    I now have "DV Security Clearance until 2025.
