Note Takers

Our Note Takers

Note Takers are also known as court reporters, verbatim reporters, or stenographers. They are responsible for producing a precise and real-time summary of what is being said and can accurately write at speeds of around 200 words per minute.

How Do Note Taking Work?

Our Note Takers are trained to use machine or pen shorthand. They will bring their own equipment, to produce a word-for-word report of the spoken word at an appointment.

    When To Use

    Note Takers

    We can provide Note Takers across a wide variety of sectors including court reporting and speech to text reporting for those who cannot make their own notes. This might be where a client is focused on watching a lip speaker or a BSL interpreter, or for clients with visual impairments, dyslexia, or mobility problems.

    Speech To Text Reporters

    Electronic Note Takers

    Electronic Note Takers use an ordinary laptop which can then be linked to a client’s laptop to provide them with a real-time summary of the meeting taking place. For deafblind clients, the note taker’s laptop can be linked to a braille machine.

    The note taker will use a specialist note taking software which allows them to use shorthand language and type at a faster speed. It will also allow the client to type messages to the note taker or add their own notes. At the end of the meeting the note taker will provide a copy of the notes either as a hard copy or as a digital copy via email or on a memory stick.

    Speech To Text Reporters

    Manual Note Takers

    Manual Note Takers provide a clear set of handwritten notes for clients to read after a meeting. The notes will include a summarised account of all relevant information, this may include discussion, comments, and asides.

    With manual note taking it is much easier for the note taker to include annotations, diagrams and equations when needed. When required we can provide a typed copy of the notes for an additional charge.
