Hello, CSRs!

My name is Lu Weil.  After working as a staff proofreader for many years at a large court reporting agency, I have decided to branch out on my own full time.  I have been proofreading for court reporters exclusively for 20 years. During that time I also attained an associate's degree in court and conference reporting and have sat for the Texas CSR examination.  That being said, I have a deep "big-picture" understanding of the court reporting industry overall that greatly enhances my skill set.   

My corrections process is very user friendly, starting with an ASCII (.txt) file submitted by the client and ending in a PDF returned to the client.  All of my suggested corrections are searchable, made in context, and visible in red. 

I am extremely reliable, thorough, and have a superior eye for detail and inconsistency.  I am often available at a moment's notice for same-day turnaround when requested and expedites are rarely a problem.  I offer competitive rates and competitive turnaround, working seven days a week if need be, and treat weekends and most holidays as any other day.  My goal is to always place my clients' convenience above my own.

Payment may be made easily via PayPal, as this is the most convenient billing method for both my clients and myself.

I am currently building a roster of new clients and have several slots still available, whether you're full time, part time, or only interested for now in a one-off.    

Please contact me directly at, and I will promptly send you my rate sheet and policies/practices along with an exemplar transcript. 

I greatly welcome the opportunity of becoming a valued and dedicated part of your team!

Hello Everyone,

I am a NEW proofreader looking for my first client. Please take a chance on me. I will give you a discount and offer 100% satisfaction guaranteed. I just completed Proofread Anywhere: Theory & Practice with flying colors. I have taught high school English for 38 years and am a veritable word nerd. 

I have retired to a beautiful island in Lake Champlain, Vermont where there are no distractions. Just your work ... and a few honking geese. Island Proofreading is my encore act and I am oh so excited to get started.

Thanks for your consideration.


Diane Bahrenburg, Island Proofreading

Glad I could help, Terence.  I never even thought about that issue either.  

Comment by Terence D. Skelton on October 8, 2016 at 8:00

Kelli, thank you for sharing this.  I have a Stentura 8000LX, and I am considering getting a new writer in the next year or two.  I have a possibility of a used Elan Mira A3, but was thinking of perhaps getting a used Diamante, if one comes available, but if I got a new machine, getting an Impression.  I didn't even think to look at the spacing of the keys.  I was so focused on the size of the screen and the weight of the machine.  I love reading back from paper, so how I read back me steno was a big focus for me, and of course, my aging shoulder forces me to take into account, the weight of the machine.  No matter what writer I decide on, your post has alerted me to also concentrate on not just touch of the keys, but spacing of the keys.  Thank you so, so much for bringing this to my attention.

I have an Impression ProCat writer that I bought about three years ago and I do like the writer. I talked a friend into buying the new Impression this year. Well, apparently there have been some tweaks and things are not the same. I even tried to write on the writer and the keys are way too close together, which makes you have more mistakes. I was thinking of buying it from her because I felt so bad, but my writing was terrible on the new machine. Procat has blocked me from posting any feedback about their writers; guess they only want positive reviews. Here is my friend's post to me today about the new Impression, which I feel so bad:

I have decided to sell my writer. I just can't even bring myself to work on it. It's just crazy. I started to set it up the other day after the company tweaked it for me, and as soon as I started to play with it, I just couldn't do it. I don't want the learning curve. My wrist still bothers me from the first time I wrote on it for those two days. I really don't want to put the time in on it. I probably should, but I have this mental block about it. I don't like how the screen doesn't drop down, I don't like how I just don't feel I can ask questions to the company about it because I always have to go through the lady that answers the phone who was down right nasty to my in an email, and I just have such a bad taste in my mouth over everything that went on with this writer Anyhow, just wanted your input on ways to sell it. I noticed on Ebay they sell writers, so will probably post there. Do you have any other suggestions. It is brand new, I wrote on it twice (oh, yeah, you wrote on it once too).

Lori, sales rep, reached out the other day in an email and asked me how it was going and if I was using the machine. I told her no, that I wasn't going to use it and did she have any suggestions on selling it. Hmm, never heard back from her again. I bet her nasty boss told her to not reply back and just leave it alone. Not sure why she didn't get back to me, really, but expected her to reply if only to say sorry to hear that and I really can't advise you on selling or some such thing, but anyhow...
