The JRC program offers distance learning opportunities through Web-based education.
Scopists are hired by court reporters to edit and proofread transcripts while the reporters work in court or take depositions. Scoping is an ideal career for a person who prefers to work at home and provides flexibility in choosing how many hours you want to work.
You’ll learn to edit the stenograph-to-English translation of the trial proceeding recorded by the reporter and check for any mistranslations to correct words such as proper names and technical terms. You’ll also use specialized reporting software to review, edit and proofread the court transcript that can easily be transferred via online services. This program offers distance-learning options.
