Court workers transcribe speeches word-for word at legal proceedings. They are detail-oriented professionals with an exceptional hearing and great writing skills. In order to make sure that all the words are recorded effectively, they employ several methods like stenotype machines and digital/audio recording systems. At the end of legal proceedings they have to proofread their own transcription to make sure that this document is free of grammatical and spelling mistakes. Likewise, they have to create a terminology database of all terminology used at court hearings and use them to make transcribing a little bit easier.

A training course in reporting techniques is necessary to apply for this position; however, some states require a Registered Professional Reporter accreditation from the National Court Reporters Association, so if you have this accreditation make sure you highlight it in your Court Reporter resume sample.
