Doing Depositions in Japan

Recently, I responded to a call for an independent court reporter on CSRNation who may reside in Japan or be in Japan on a visit to engage in a deposition in Tokyo.  I sent a note to Kelli Combs clarifying the situation in Japan for depositions.  I thought I would share this with others on this site.

Why doesn't my audio sync up with my notes after in-chamber conferences?

I've been a deposition reporter for 23 years, was out of reporting for almost two years, and now am an official for the first time in the courtroom.  Let me just say I have great admiration for all of you officials.  Holy Cow - the speeds, especially on L&M days.  :)   I'm also just learning CaseCatalyst.  I will be getting training in a few weeks but have a couple bells and whistles I'm concerned about till then.…

Electronic Signature

Hi everyone.

I am on Digicat software which does not support electronic signature.  Does anyone know how I can apply an electronic signature to my certificate page using a free software?  I hear Adobe Acrobat will do the trick, but at a cost of $395.

Thanks,  Maura

Writer mic or laptop mic?

Best way to get to work?!

Hello all,

I've posted once before and received very positive feedback. I am a new reporter, I've done about 7 jobs, but I would like to start working more. As of right now I'm working with one firm. I was wondering if you all could give me some advice on how to go about getting on calendar with other firms? I've made a few calls, but it seems to not get me anywhere. All feedback is much appreciated.

Suffix help please

Hi, all.
I have endings defined as:

Yet when I write them, occasionally I get them not attaching to the root word, particularly if I pause on that second stroke. Is there anything I can do to get them to attach to the root word even with the pause?

Thanks for your help in advance.
