Why not just pick up the phone and start calling the agencies in your area and asking if they have an overflow list.  Ask if you can put your name on their list.  Most agencies will ask for a resume and possibly rates.  That's what I did when I left my full-time agency and went totally independent, working for whoever calls me.  I'm busier that way than I was working for a single agency.

I'm a court reporter who has been reporting for almost three years.  I work for a small, reporter-owned agency.  I also have one big agency I freelance for.  I love my agency, but there are times I only have one job a week or nothing at all.  I'd like advice about getting my name to other agencies.  I live in Southern California and take depos in personal injury, employment, family law, medical malpractice, work comp. 

Any suggetions will be helpful.

It's included in the dictionary portion of the software, Angela.  Why do you think I made a banana mouth when it picked up a good portion of my writing - - like about 85% on the first run!

This is great.  I will let her know.  We were both thinking she would need a Bryan College specific dic. in order to get going.

Does she need to ask Stenograph for it, or does it come with the software or machine, if you know?

Angela:  This should not be difficult at all.  CaseCatalyst starts out with a great dictionary and she will be pleased just how much it already knows.  She can go through it and edit it at leisure and won't take long to restore.  I was even shocked how much it could translate, and, mind you, everyone knows my notes come from Mars!

Bryan College dictionary needed

Hi everyone.  I've got a good friend that's been out of court reporting for the past year and is just starting back up.  She has switched to Case Cat and the new Diamonte but has lost her dictornary after 12 years of working.  Does anyone have a copy they'd be willing to share?  If not, any advice on how to get one? BC has not been cooperating with her and will not help her.....after all that school and MONEY spent.

Please help

Kelli, I really think most people in our business come across over-reacting people quite often and so will understand completely.  I would.  Don't let it affect you!

Comment by Janet on October 2, 2012 at 12:40

I don't think it reflects on you, Kelli.  It reflects on her.  She's obviously dealing with other issues.  They know you're not late paying her since the job isn't late.

Comment by Janet on October 2, 2012 at 11:55

Thanks for the warning, Kelli.  What she did is wrong on so many levels.  Not only were you not late with payment, but to involve the agency you work for when they have absolutely nothing to do with your business relationship with your scopist is so inappropriate and unprofessional.

Comment by Wynne A. Pauly on October 2, 2012 at 11:45

A reporter friend of mine had something similar happen to her as far as an over-reaction on the part of the scopist.  It's really a shame because you're working to establish a good relationship and then some of them over-react.

Some (not all) scopists don't seem to realize that, if they get in sync with the reporter on things the reporter considers essentials, they can then get more work, that their role is to make the reporter able to take on more work and then they, as a result get more work.

I find it most discouraging that many don't realize this.
