Hi! I was a legal secretary for over thirty years. I am now working from home transcribing audio tapes and of late, I am doing a little scoping and proofreading for court reporters who are willing to send me documents in Microsoft Word, since I do not have CAT equipment. I use Dropbox, Start Stop, Microsoft Word, Windows 7, Paypal and an Infinity foot pedal and headset. My rates are reasonable for both audio (per minute) and scoping/proofreading (per page). My turnaround times are good. I can guarantee a perfectly proofread, formatted and spell-checked document. Please consider my services by emailing me at Thanks!

Hi Skip-

Would you be willing to send PDFs and receive scanned corrections in PDFs?

Comment by Skip Olivares on July 28, 2012 at 14:35

Hey all.  I'm a new court reporter looking to hire a proofreader long-term -- I'll need one for my career, after all.  That being said, I'm looking for a proofreader who can handle DigitalCAT (I'd like to switch but can't afford to right now), and who adheres primarily to Morson's English Guide for Court Reporters.  I've been having trouble finding a proofer who can meet those criteria and do a reliable job, but if you can, then please contact me.

Some general observations regarding several posts on this forum:

1) If people receive "duplicate" e-mails regarding posts from CSRNation, it might be a result of the same post being posted in multiple forums.  I didn't even realize (or forgot) there was this specific forum for placing proofreading "ads" which often end up on being posted on the Proofreaders forum.  I believe the Proofreaders forum was probably designed for general proofreading discussion and this "ad" forum is more for solicitation, but unlike Eclipse Forums, the folks who run CSRNation don't appear to be strict about where the information gets posted, which is a good thing.

2) Regarding clients who might be slow pay or no pay; I have a policy not to exceed a $200 balance for new clients prior to my invoicing them (which is generally weekly anyway).  This has worked well for me.  When I recently made an exception with a client I had no history with who wanted to pay twice each month, she ran up an $800 bill.  Sure enough, it took a long time to get paid and I wasn't a happy camper.  Stick to policies and these types of problems can usually be avoided.  When  reporters said they were not happy with my work and claimed that I made lots of mistakes or whatever (and hundreds of dollars is not at stake), I just tell them "no charge, have a nice day."  Isn't worth the negative energy to deal with that type of thing.  If it is involving a considerable amount of money, I simply offer a discount, take the loss and move on.

3) Another good policy (and this goes for reporters, scopists, proofreaders, transcribers, etc.) is to conduct 20-minute telephone interviews (or an email interview) to find out about compatibility BEFORE entering into a relationship.  This will narrow down the playing field for BOTH parties.  No sense to "get in bed" with folks that aren't going to be a good business marriage.  Again, when I slack off and don't take that extra steps, both of us often end up to be very unhappy.

Any reporter needing proofreading services can contact me via phone (866-925-8020) or via my website:

I also am happy to hear from other proofreaders who need help collecting money owed to them (or any other aspect of the proofreading business).  Sometimes it is as simple as contacting the agencies the reporter does work for (or the court administrator if the reporter is an official) and you'd be amazed how quickly an outstanding invoice is taken care of!  In ten years, I only had to result to that method once or twice, so I have been very fortunate in that regard.  Threatening collection activity can also do the job (which I have had to do about five times in ten years), but did receive prompt payment after that.  Be professional; we don't want to alienate folks, especially during the Great Recession.

Glad to help in any way I can.

Thanks, Janet. That makes sense.

Comment by Janet on July 17, 2012 at 17:32

That normally happens if someone edits their ad and posts it again.  I'm assuming that's what happened with the ad Chris placed.  

Comment by Tracy McKeon on July 17, 2012 at 17:17

I am also getting duplicate e-mails.

Comment by Barbie Clifton on July 17, 2012 at 17:09

I wonder if something is wrong with CSR website - I've gotten the same e-notice three times now.

Comment by Chris Renegar on July 17, 2012 at 16:49

Hello, everyone!  I have been proofreading exclusively for court reporters for 20 years now and have many recommendations from CSRs on this site under the "Scopists & Proofers Recommended by Reporters" discussion.  (See link:  Due to the summer slowdown I would like to add a couple of "heavy hitters" or several part-timers to my client roster.  My corrections process is very user friendly; you receive a PDF back from me with your corrections integrated into the transcript so you can see them in context without those dreaded errata sheets!  Corrections are searchable in the PDF and set off in red.  I offer competitive rates, reliability, flexibility, and same-day/overnight turnaround (with little notice in most cases).  I have a couple of different billing options for your convenience including prepayment at a discount.  Payment is handled exclusively through PayPal.  You may message me on this site for more information or contact me directly at and I will promptly send out my bio, introductory information, and a rate sheet with a sample transcript attached.  I'd love to hear from you!  :-)

Comment by Ashley Kelley on July 17, 2012 at 9:16

I am an experienced proofreader looking for reporters who could use my services.  I am new to the court reporting world, but I have been proofreading for years and I am excited to get started. I am willing to proof 15 pages and supply an errata sheet for free so you can see the quality of my work. I can work with PDF files and Word documents. To view my rates and turnaround times please email me at aak dot proofer at gmail dot com. I’m really excited to start working with you.

Proofreaders and reporters alike, beware of a reporter D.B. from Topeka, KS.  You will never be paid whether you're a reporter asked to take a job for her or to proofread for her.  Steer clear.

Comment by Barbie Clifton on July 6, 2012 at 9:47
I am an Austin TX proofreader and have been proofing for an Austin reporter who is so bad about paying me that at one point she owed me over $1,500! She never confirms my requests for confirmation of receipt of my invoices. I have to contact her several times before she acknowledges receipt. I usually get these harsh emails back in response to my invoice pointing out things I missed. When I try to go over them with her she never responds. She sends files very late and gives me a short turn around, which I always make, but she claims she takes responsibility for the work being late, insinuating it's my fault!
I now have several reporters who are SO awesome that I can drop this one after I get the rest of my money. None of my other reporters have ever complained or not paid me and I always ask for constructive criticism.
Be wary!
