Court Reporters Compete For the Fastest Fingers in NYC

Posted on: February 17th, 2020 by Sfl Media No Comments

We at Courtscribes.com always find that when there are competitions to show off the amazing skills that court reporters possess, we will always post it. A group of 15 nimble-fingered students from Plaza College in Queens, NYC, will put their court reporting skills to the test in a competition this evening.

Over 100 students from across the city will compete in the National Court Reporters Association Student Speed Contest.

Plaza College’s court reporting program is led by Karen Santucci, and prepares students for careers in the court and beyond. As you know, stenography training leads to jobs in captioning for broadcast and live events.

As part of National Court Reporting and Captioning Week, the event highlights the importance of both speed and accuracy in the field. Students will be given five minutes of Disney-themed dictation. Their transcription will need to be 96 percent accurate to notch a victory.

The event will take place at Plaza College.
