Court Stenographer Schools




If you are interested in becoming a court stenographer, it is important that you understand the requirements for the locations where you would like to work.  Regulations often vary from state to state so it is critical that you research the requirements for your area.  This will help to ensure you receive the education and training you need to begin to prepare for a career in court reporting.

The difference between a stenographer who uses a stenotype machine and one who is a voice reporter is the technique each of them use to report.  Voice reporting requires a voice recorder, a stenomask, and speech-recognition software.  At the present time, some states do not allow the voice reporting technique.  With developing technology, however, voice reporting is quickly becoming more recognized as an accepted method of stenography.  Stenographers using a stenotype machine create stenographic notes through a technique that requires high keystroke speed.  Consisting of a very unique keyboard, notes are made on the stenotype machine by stroking combinations of 22 keys and a long number bar.  

Whether you are considering training to learn to use a stenotype machine or a stenomask to become a stenographer, there are many career options available for someone with these skills.  Selecting the right court reporting program for your particular situation is a very crucial step in becoming a court reporter.  Think about the type of program that would best fit your lifestyle and then search through our school listings by state shown below to begin your search:
