THE IDEAL CANDIDATE SHOULD POSSESS THE FOLLOWING SKILLS:
Stenography Skills; Court reporters use a steno machine to transcribe the spoken word into text. A stenographer is capable of transcribing text at rates far faster than even the fastest typists. Detail-oriented, excellent English grammar skills, excellent listener as well as stenographer
Real Time Reporting Skills; Technology has progressed to the point where "real time" court reporting is a reality. With real time court reporting the reporter's steno machine is connected to a computer and real time reporting software. Other legal participants can connect to the real time feed and view the transcribed text as soon as it is transcribed by the real time reporter. A real time reporter must be a skilled stenographer who is also comfortable with technology. Not only must the transcription be set up properly amongst all participants, the real time reporter may also need to package the transcripts for distribution.
Communication Skills; Whether a reporter specializes in traditional stenography or real time reporting, excellent communication skills are a must. In order to transcribe the spoken word into text, a court reporter must be an attentive listener. In addition to being able to hear the words being spoken, the court reporter must also know how to properly punctuate the resulting sentences so that the sentences accurately reflect the speaker's meaning.
