Just got off the phone with Case Catalyst tech support. I use their editing software as a scopist. Tech support tells me that, yes, Case does have the capability to let scopist do realtime scoping. It creates a "work unit" approx. every half-hour on the job and the reporter sends it to the middleman website to transmit to the scopist with audio. They tell me no special setup required in CaseCAT. Just thought I'd let you know, in case anyone else is on CaseCAT. Haven't seen any comments here, good or bad, yet about doing realtime scoping on CaseCAT. Comments, anyone???

It is great to see a group interested in this! I've worked onsite with scopists many times throughout my career, and it's my favorite way to do it. Online instant scoping is also great ... and I'm looking for a part-time scopist to do online instantaneous scoping with me. I travel for all my work these days, and do mostly next-morning transcript delivery. I remember several times watching the scopist run to the bathroom during a same-day delivery deposition and being jealous that he could just leave the room ... but other than that, I'm easy to get along with. My last scopist/proofer team just had too many kids to work through several days in a row. Anyone interested in part-time online scoping work? I'm a Total Eclipse freak ...

Good morning!
Linda, I see that your post was back in April. Well, how'd your hourly copy go? Please share. I am very interested in providing realtime scoping! : )

This is something I would really be interested in. I would love to be on site with the reporter scoping their realtime translation. I look forward to hearing more about it through this group!

Hi Linda,
I haven't had the opportunity to do realtime scoping yet, but this information will make it a lot less intimidating when the chance comes up. Thanks!

Hi, Linda.

This is great -- one of your many good ideas!

We've heard for a long time about this being theoretically possible, but now it seems like it's an idea whose time has come. It seems that maybe machines really are taking over, since now a computer can do what the reporter used to do at her first break, and then again at her lunch break, and so on: Run to her office, quickly translate and e-mail to the scopist, and get back to the hearing, with nary a bat of the eye! This sounds a lot easier.

We've come a long way, Baby, since the days when I used to wade through dog hair in a dog grooming shop because that's where the reporter's husband used to pick up and deliver transcripts as he headed to work. The dog groomer was a friend of the reporter.

Everything's up to date in K.C., for sure! I look forward to learning more!

Hi Linda, great idea to set up a group like this. I work with a realtime scopist, have done for the past five years. Sometimes she works on site with me and others she works remotely, we both love the freedom.

If anyone has any info on Realtime with DigitalCat, I'd love to hear it. We really want to get this going with audio capabilities.

Hi all, My reporter just found out (after trying to use it) that GoToMyPC doesn't work with DigitalCat for the audio. So It will work but the scopist is unable to get the audio. He has spoken to Stenovations and they are working on it.

Thanks for setting up the group, Linda. I look forward to chatting with other members regarding this exciting new technology!
