When posting, would be helpful to know what software scopist uses.

Six-year Case CAT scopist available for work.  I use Morson's as a reference.  If you prefer a different source, I'm happy to accommodate you.  I am reliable, dependable, pay attention to detail, and have a great work ethic.  I strive for no more than a four-day turnaround.  I do work on weekends and some holidays.  My rates are definitely reasonable.  I'm happy to provide references upon request.  Please contact me if you'd like more info.

I've been a full-time scopist for 12 years, working with reporters for many years prior to that as a transcriptionist and proofreader.  Case CATalyst.  Reasonable rates.  Good turnaround times.  Dependable.

Hello! I am a semi-retired legal secretary (for over 30 years) who has been trying her hand at audio transcription, proofreading and scoping since 2011. So far I've been very successful and thoroughly enjoy the work! I'd love to work with anyone who is willing to put their transcript into Microsoft Word, as I do not have CAT equipment. I have a good command of the English language and an old fashioned work ethic. I would be pleased to work with you on any overflow transcription, scoping or proofreading assignments you may have. I can be reached at Have a great day and thanks in advance for your consideration!

My name is Meagan Jacobs and I'm new to the scoping world. I've received training from a close friend of mine who has been scoping for about 5 years. I am currently using Stenovations digitalcat, but hope to upgrade to a better software as soon as I get stable work. I'm a quick learner, and I always stick to my deadline!

Pay is negotiable and will take payments through PayPal.

My name is Julie Price.  I scope on Case CATalyst 13.  I am open to full-time, overflow, and proofing work.  I have done mostly depositions, and some family court, but I am open to anything.  I have good research skills, so I am open to technical transcripts.  I also have excellent grammar and spelling skills, and I am very dependable.

I am a graduate of BeST Scoping.  Please feel free to contact me at any time with any questions or for my rates.  I will give you a discount for the first transcript.

Oh, there you are Amanda!  Good luck with your ad.  This is a busy forum and the right place for your ad.

Very experienced reporter with some time on my hands!  I've been reporting depos for 22 years and pro-temming in court for a year.  I'm not getting a ton of transcripts in court (and pro-tem rates in court are not particularly high), so I'd like to take on some scoping.  My turnaround is lightning fast and my rates are reasonable :)  I prefer scoping your work to my own.  I don't know the ending in your story!  My normal habit is to spot check audio when something looks "off," and I will do full audio scoping when requested for a higher rate.  Please e-mail me at l y n p e n f i e l d @ c o x . net (you know  what it should REALLY look like) and help stop my Bejeweled Blitz addiction!!!  I'm on Eclipse V, but I can still accommodate Eclipse IV.

I have been a Case Catalyst and Premier Power scopist for around 18 years.  Timely, efficient and reasonable, I'm your girl if you need a great detail-oriented scopist.  E-mail me for rates and availability.

Hello ... I'm a Case scopist looking for a busy reporter who takes pride in her/his work and wants an ongoing working relationship with a conscientious scopist.  I am happy to provide references.  I look forward to hearing from you and being of help.  Thanks for reading my post.

Comment by Jody Rake on May 11, 2012 at 7:55

Hello, I am an Eclipse scopist (on version 5) with 6 years experience scoping and 20 years proofreading. I'm a certified technical writer; I do top notch work on all grammar components. I also have a bio-med background, so medical terms don't bother me. I am a veritable detective when it comes to finding spellings on the internet, but when in doubt I will flag it. I follow the specs and preferences I am given and have recommendations, references, and samples available upon request. My regular turnaround is about 75 pages per day excluding Sundays. I will make you look good!

Comment by D Sanders, RDR, CRR on May 10, 2012 at 13:14

Sure wish we could comment on specific posts......

I don't really want to do a "work request."  Those haven't worked out for me.  I am looking for an overflow scopist and a backup proofer who uses CC (they don't have to be the same person).  I thought I had found one, but when she "didn't hear from" me she took on other proofing work.  I specifically said I was looking for overflow and I would give her the next small job I had as a test job.  Anyway.  Moving forward.


I need someone who knows how to use the software.  Fields, Bylines, undestand how to insert text inside hidden text for indexing, global table management... I am a little braindead right now from yesterday's 350.  It's okay if you don't know it, you just have to be WILLING to learn it.  I was negotiating with a scopist yesterday and everything was fine until I asked those questions and then she decided that it "wasn't going to work out."  What a waste of time.  I am an Advanced User.  I do units, use DropBox.  Hate send this file or whatever it's called.


I have encountered 2 problems lately.  One.  Things have changed.  The days of taking your time to complete a transcript is Over.  I had a proofreader actually balk at anything BUT 5-day turn!  I have an 8-day turn at my office.   There may be parts of the country where that is okay but it's not where I work.  If you take the job, you need to turn it.  If you have appointments during the day, parties, funerals, where you can't work, you need to say that.  I have no problem with it.  If I ask you to take a job on Friday and you tell me that you have 2 doc appointments that day but can work on it in the afternoon, no problem.  But don't turn around and ask me if you can get it back to me by Monday or Tuesday bc you don't want to work on the weekend!


The second problem is quality.  Some scopists, bc they don't know, weren't trained, worked with other reporters who like to do half the work themselves AND pay a scopist, have issues with completeness.  The internet does work.  It's easy to research something.  Don't edit a job without looking at the app page!  It gives you lots of info.  I actually had a scopist scope a whole job w/out looking  and it was VIDEO and she scoped it as a reguar. 

Reporters are not giving scopists what they need.  Reporters, give your scopist a SPELLING LIST, the style or Notice, the exhibits, whatever they need for cripe sakes!!!!!!! 


So after all that ranting, if you would like to do some overflow work and have experience, please contact me with your rates at purchases2011 at yahoo.  I am very fair.  If I give you a crappy job, the next one will be good.  I will not use you as the backup who gets all the crappy jobs.  I don't do that, unlike firms that do that to overflow reporters.


The goal is to get out the best transcript possible.

Hello to everyone, I'm in need of a scopist asap!  I've got two jobs that I need someone to scope for me. I've got too much working going on right now.  They're PI depos.  They are a combination of 140 pages.  I've got case CATALYST 4.  Please e-mail me at for rates.  I would need these jobs back by Sunday afternoon at the latest!!

Hi, I have been scoping for over a year now and am currently working with a couple reporters. I’ve done depositions, trials, interviews and discovery jobs. I use The Record Player for my audio but I am happy to use whatever program is compatible with your audio/video files. I am a stickler for spelling and won't hesitate to look up facts to ensure the transcript gets back to you in the best shape possible. My turnaround for non-rush jobs is 3-5 days and I’m also available to do expedited transcripts. I will never leave you hanging for getting a job back in time!

I really enjoy scoping, so if you are in need of any help, please consider me. If you would like references, email me and I would be happy to provide them for you.

Thanks, Veronica

Hi, everyone.  I've been scoping for over 25 years.  I am also a retired reporter.  I worked in criminal court for 16 years.  I have Case Catalyst, Total Eclipse, and StenoCat 32.  I also used to teach court reporting at a local university.  Feel free to drop me a note if you need some scoping done.
