The Amazing Power of the Court Reporter
The only one capable of translating the spoken word into written form instantaneously, the only one who gives the hearing-impaired access to the world in realtime, the only one who is entrusted with the words of the Supreme Court, the House of Representatives, and the Senate, is a court reporter.
Court reporters record history. Period.
200 words per minute, writing on 22 black keys with the skill of a concert pianist, the court reporter combines the knowledge of law, medicine, anatomy, and grammar to produce a verbatim transcript.
Excellence is the minimum.
