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.

  • 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.
