This is just a quickie. I haven't worked in 20 years as a CR and started practicing again last February. I plan to be ready to look for a CR job in January. I was/am non computer.
You all know I bought a Stenoram II. It is obvious it is not the best choice. I am not going to be a big time court reporter, so I don't want (won't be able to) to spend the money for an expensive writer. My plan is to do a depo, dump it, edit and finish it. It is unlikely I will do any real time.
I already know a Stenura 800 would be a good choice.
Can I survive okay with a Stenura 600 or a Stenura 500? Would a Smart Writer be okay?
