Reporters all know this: The best work—yielding the highest pay—goes to reporters who provide realtime or expedited services. This is understandable since they require an advanced skill level and, in general, clients pay more for them. Also, many reporters work for firms or courthouses within which there are pay differentials; those holding specified NCRA certifications earn more. The Federal court system, for example, rewards reporters holding certain certifications with higher pay grades. Many private firms do something similar by paying a higher page rate or offering other benefits.

Only a small percentage of all reporters provide realtime services. A larger percentage provide expedited transcript delivery services but the numbers are still dismaying. The truth is that many more reporters could provide both—with the proper help and guidance. What’s holding you back?

  • Are you struggling with repetitive writing problems?
  • Do you hesitate when you hear certain words or phrases?
  • Do you consistently drag certain letters, such as the final -L
    or -S?
  • Are the wrong words or phrases mistranslating?
  • Do you struggle with words ending with “nd,” “nt” or other difficult fingerings?
  • Are you taking and failing the NCRA skills exams and wondering why?
  • Do you suffer from test anxiety?

If you answered YES to any of these or feel that better writing skills are within your reach—if you just had some help getting there—then you should read on!

Having better writing skills or being able to hang some letters behind your name are important, no question. You earn more money and enjoy more prestige among your colleagues; both very nice. But as important, you’ll reclaim huge chunks of your time.

When we talk to court reporters about their jobs and their lives, we hear one thing again and again, “I want to spend less time working and editing transcripts and more time enjoying life.” That’s something most of us can relate to, and truly a goal worth striving for. However, it often seems unattainable. Is it?

Nothing is ever easy, but it isn’t nearly as hard as you may think. Here’s why. In the past, if you wished to improve your writing skills you confronted two major obstacles. First, you had to find enough suitable material with which to practice. That can be challenging enough, but then follows the truly hard part: You must determine, on your own, what your problems are and how to resolve them. It is one thing to raise your speed using dictation drills, but quite another to increase accuracy and work out problems with your writing style.

So finding suitable material to write is the first challenge, but once you overcome that obstacle you’re then confronted with another. You must analyze your notes to determine where your errors are, what categories of errors you have, and figure out how to resolve them. Taken together and mixed in with the hustle and bustle of our personal and professional lives, these two challenges are more than most of us can overcome. The result is predictable: Reporters languish at a skill level that is, in many ways, a life sentence, condemned to a purgatory of back pages and endless frustration.

This webinar suite can help you escape that purgatory. Marybeth will explore a revolutionary technology that makes it possible for you to improve your writing skills, get better accuracy, and resolve issues in your writing style. It eliminates the need to continually search out appropriate dictation material and it analyzes your writing for you. That probably sounds too good to be true – but it’s not. This technology is called Realtime Coach™ and it’s so powerful it is embraced by the National Court Reporting Association and an unlimited trial version is available free to every NCRA member.

Like a phone call, it’s a two-way connection. As you are seeing, hearing, and writing all kinds of drills and exercises, at the same time Realtime Coach is also receiving and assessing your writing. It uses your CAT software and your dictionaries to assess your accuracy; it uses special analytical tools to point to problem areas, and it uses specially designed drills, called Barrier Busters™, to help you overcome problems that slow you down and reduce your accuracy. The content is so diverse it is always fresh. The service is available 24 hours a day so you can practice at your convenience, not someone else’s.

If you’re an NCRA member and haven’t tried Realtime Coach, you’d probably like to know how to do so. Marybeth will show you how to log on and obtain an account and a password. More important, she’ll also show you how to use it. Already have a Realtime Coach account, but would like to get more out of it? Whether you’re new to Realtime Coach or an existing user, instruction is the meat of this webinar suite.

You can work with Realtime Coach in so many ways: to assess your current writing status, to enhance your skills, to improve your translation accuracy, to spend less time editing, and, yes, to pass certification tests. Marybeth is going to show you how to get started, how to use the different kinds of content available, how to get the most out of them, how to use them to overcome problems that plague your writing, how to overcome test anxiety, and how to have fun in the process. She’ll give you an overview of all the different features and plans available, what they can do for you, and how to use them.

This is definitely a webinar you don’t want to miss. It could change your life!
