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 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.
