As a former court reporter, I understand how important it is to turn in a clean and accurate transcript that reflects your professional skill. Your need for a reliable proofreader is extremely crucial in this business, and you need someone you can count on to be available at a moment’s notice to get the job done in a timely manner.

I'd love to be that proofreader you can count on! For information about my rates and more, check me out at For any other questions you may have, contact me at I can't wait to hear from you!

I want to offer my thoughts and prayers to everyone affected by Harvey and Irma.  For a reduced rate and quicker turnaround, I want to help you while you focus on preparation, evacuation, and reaching loved ones.  Please don't hesitate to contact me at  Stay safe!

Busy? Overwhelmed? Exhausted? Need five extra minutes to maintain your sanity? I can help!

Instead of taking the time to proofread your transcripts yourself, send them to me. I will go over them, fact checking dates and addresses, correcting punctuation for readability, and catching those sneaky typos that slip by. When you give your transcript to me, I'm a set of fresh eyes. I'll do my best to make sure you have a clean, accurate transcript. I work by marking on PDF. Audio is available upon request at a different rate.

For references I use:

  • Lillian Morson's English Guide for Court Reporters
  • Bad Grammar, Good Punctuation by Margie Wakeman Wells
  • Gregg's Reference Manual
  • The best punctuation book, period. by June Casagrande
  • The Merriam-Webster Dictionary
  • Various Internet sources (e.g.,, etc)

And most importantly:

  • Your preferences.

I will take your preferences into account when proofreading. Like the Oxford comma? Great! Hate it? Ok, that's fine too. I'm here to help YOU.

Please don't hesitate to e-mail me with any jobs, questions, or just to chat! Please visit my website here for more information or e-mail me at

Looking for a reliable proofreader?  Maybe not right this exact second, but perhaps you'll find yourself back to this page when you are swamped or in need of someone on a random Sunday evening to meet deadline when no one else is answering your emails.   

I offer competitive rates and availability (no extra charge for weekends).  Your work is important to you; your work is important to me.  Check out to learn more and potentially contact me regarding your next job.

PS: New clients receive their first 15 pages for FREE.

I'm Francine Jackson, the one Christine said was having a problem signing in.  I've been a proofreader for almost 20 years, starting when, as a person putting together a program book for kids' science studies, I noticed there were too many errors to allow the public to read.  I have been freelancing for a court reporting office for many years; also, I'm a professional informal science educator, with emphasis on astronomy.  And, yes, I'm looking forward to the upcoming total solar eclipse.

Comment by Emily Sather on August 7, 2017 at 13:36

I’m a proofreader with over 11 years of proofreading and editing experience. I've been working as a transcript proofreader for the last two years and I would love to add a couple more court reporters to my current circle of regular clients.

I proofread in PDF format and am available for both regular and rush/weekend work. More details are listed in my profile. One-time or long-term clients welcome!

Resume, rates sheet, and references available upon request. You can email me at I'd love to discuss how I can help save you time and frustration!

Hi there!

Picky, picky, picky – that’s me, but in a good way! My obsessive attention to detail will help you produce outstanding transcripts.  I pledge to read every word and do extensive research to make sure all names, terms, locations, etc. are spelled correctly. And I seem to have a knack for figuring out a puzzling word or phrase when you say, “It sounded something like this…”

I have found that my paralegal background and hands-on training in court reporting school makes me a more well-rounded proofreader with a better understanding of the challenges you face in recording verbatim proceedings.

My longtime (since 1996) court reporter client is taking an extended hiatus, so I am now available, with red pen in hand, to take on your most challenging  depos.

The details:

                        Paralegal Certificate (Honors) – Roosevelt University, Chicago

                        Court Reporting School – Merit College (2 years)

                        BA (Sociology)-- University of Illinois

                        Proofreading experience - 21 years

Please contact me at: to discuss your project or chat about rates and turnaround times. I’m looking forward to partnering with you in a long-term relationship!
