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.

  • I started in this profession 35 years ago, first as a pen writer and then retrained to be a CAT writer. To start with, this was mainly covering court work (all divisions) and bankruptcies and depositions and then moved on to medical, nursing and other tribunals and international war crime trials, World Trade Organisation appeal hearings, and arbitrations. I have also transcribed meetings of various types including ones set up by the Arts Council UK.
    I attend various venues to capture the spoken word using my specialist writing equipment and then produce transcripts, but I also transcribe from audio recordings in both the UK and abroad.
    Also I undertake editing work which involves working alongside a colleague who provides live-feed text in real-time to lawyers or others from which I edit and produce a transcript. These venues have included the UK, Europe, Middle East, Africa and Singapore.

    I have a have a BA (Hons) in Business and passed BIVR's QRR1 examination.
