So I said "gun" about a thousand times in this trial, and I don't think it translated right once. Ugh. Does anyone have a suggestion for a voice steno for "gun"???
I recently posted a photo of a captioner dressed in what I considered to be inappropriate attire for the occasion. I took some criticism for it, rightfully so, (1) because I posted a photo of the individual, and (2) because I was ignorant of what appropriate dress was for that occasion. Lesson learned. Spring forward a few months. I ran across a reporter in court the other day wearing a nice navy-blue suit, casual shoes, and no socks. I thought about it -- not too long -- and decided it too was inappropriate for the occasion. We were in a courtroom; he was reporting a hearing. This is something I have a little experience with. I'm not a member of the proper-attire police, but I do believe how I dress and how fellow reporters dress in the professional arena reflects on all of us. I would like to know how others feel about this. I may be reflecting my age and my preferences of proper dress, and perhaps times have changed and fashion has changed, and what is unacceptable to my generation may be acceptable to younger generations. Perhaps my edition of "Rules of Men's Dress" is outdated. If I'm wrong, please educate me The photo is a stock photo, and not one of an actual court reporter -- to my knowledge.
Anybody else not able to get to the website?
What topics would you like to see covered in our monthly chats?
Having an issue and I'm getting mixed answers. I've already paid for my certification test. I paid for the dictation and the written test. I'm being told from different people that I have to pay for some workshop, which is another $125. The workshop options on the application say optional even for a first time. Am I missing something here?
