I have been scoping/proofing for court reporters for over 30 years. I actually started typing for them in the ‘80s. In between that time I earned my degree as a paralegal and worked for attorneys for several years and then returned to full-time scoping in 1990. I have experience in all areas of law. I have fast turnaround time and competitive prices. I am on Procat.
Hi, Pam. For transcription, I no longer use a set rate chart. I've found that people are paid so differently depending upon area/region of work. I would rather discuss what we both can afford and go from there. I have turnaround as quick as 24 hours. Right now I can handle quite a bit of transcription work. Feel free to e-mail me with any other questions you may have: firstname.lastname@example.org
Yes. Everyone swears by Magnum Steno. I was considering giving it a try too before I had to put things on hold. When I save up a few $$, I'm going to see about trading in my writer for some sort of upgrade. But as slow as it's been, that might take a while. Which writer and CAT do you have?
Hey, girl. It's nice to hear from you. Work's been kinda slow lately. Lots of cancellations. I'm hoping things will start turning around soon and jobs will actually stay on the books. I was doing really well on my machine, but I had to put it down for a while because I have too many problems with my wrists and arms. My machine is a manual student writer. I keep thinking if I had a better one that it would be easier, but those things are just too darn expensive, especially if my wrists won't cooperate.
How about you? How's it going over there? I hope you're busier than I am right now. Although I'm glad my job canceled this morning 'cause it's just too dang cold to go out :-)
