How's work going?
Congratulations for you - what specialty is your attorney? Where you living? When's your exam?
I changed schools to College of Court Reporting and I'm happy as a clam and doing really well - much better! Quit my job, sold my house, sending my son to university - moving to Lubbock, Texas tomorrow - I'm the happiest I've been in 11 years - no kidding! Can you see me doing my Snoopy dance?!!!!!
Write back and tell me all!
Around here most are mask writers. I started out on the machine (school) and didn't want to stay in school 7 years (like the norm).
Today, the stenomask industry has advanced to using CAT voice recognition software, and then their transcripts are scoped. I don't do that, but I have a few friends who have invested in the voice recognition software. Years ago, it cost almost $10,000. I'm sure it's come down in price today. You have to develop your own dictionary to make it effective.
Check out this website for speech recognition software that some stenotypists use: Speechtek
Also, here is a forum for maskers: VoiceRecognition Forum
There will be an upcoming Stenomask Convention in August at Opryland in Nashville, August 26-29, 2009. You should go and network with other stenomaskers. I think you may really enjoy it. Also, check out the stenomask forum: NVRA Forum
I think I gained the best experience working in-house for a busy court reporting company, learning from seasoned veterans in the industry. Being in the trenches with others helped me gain the skills set I needed to be a proficient transcriptionist. It was exactly what I needed to move forward.
