WHAT COURT REPORTERS DO
Court reporters create word-for-word transcriptions at trials, depositions, and other legal proceedings.
Most court reporters work in courts or legislatures. However, some work from either their home or a central office providing broadcast captioning for television stations or for hard-of-hearing individuals.
Employment of court reporters is projected to grow 7 percent from 2018-28, faster than the average for all occupations. Those with experience and training in techniques for helping deaf or hard-of-hearing people such as real-time captioning and communication access real-time translation (CART), will have the best job prospects.
