transcriber you can commute to the "office" in your jammies.
every day casual Friday. You can set your own hours, be your own
boss, work as much or as little as you desire. You can be home with
your children when they are ill or just when you want to be with
them. With a voice writing career you can have job security you never
thought possible going with you wherever you may move.
Is working from home for you? Well, it's never been easier to do
just that these days. Almost any kind of job, from accountant to
writer, can be done from the comfort of your own home.
Also, with a court reporting career you can work as little or as much as
you want. You can set your own days and take the time you need for
family. How much you work depends on how much money you want to
However first you must first understand this. Can we all agree that
to be successful in anything in life requires the proper skill in
that one area? From hitting a baseball to making money requires
learning the skill to do those activities.
Any genuine marketable skill is developed over time either
through deliberate action or painful trial and error by learning
from the school of hard knocks. Also, it’s developed by applying
consistent time tested methods used in the past by others who are
successful in your endeavor.
I have a tremendous opportunity to share with you. It's happening!
Voice writing using speech recognition technology is entering court
reporting and related fields. Voice writers are the future!
Voice Writing School
I Am A Professional
I have been a court transcriber and voice writer for over 20
years! My course is simple and easy to learn. It also provides the
working person, such as a single parent, spouse or student the
flexibility of not having to attend a classroom but rather as an
online course format you can work out your study time around your
job, family or any other situation.
But You've Never Heard of Voice Writing?
The word was 'coined' a few years ago when speech (or voice) recognition technology became sophisticated enough to be used by voice writers working in the fields of court reporting, closed captioning for television/broadcast work, CART (Communication Access Real time Translation) Providers working with deaf or hard of hearing students in college classrooms, open captioning working with businesses/corporations web-casting events where streaming text is needed to be added to the audio/video, and general transcription work in a variety of environments.
I will go into much more detail how to successfully train to
become a real time voice writer from the comfort of your home in a
distance learning format. But let me make a few points first. Yes,
the World Wide Court Reporting School’s home-based method is a
self-training program designed for individuals who:
-Want to earn a great living;
-Want to eliminate worry of their job being outsourced
-Want to use cutting edge technology
-Want to train for a new career without having to travel to a
Voice writers are people who make verbatim records in the courtroom
settings for trials and hearings. They report depositions at
locations like, attorneys' offices, doctors' offices, stores,
business locations, airports, private residences, almost anywhere
you can imagine. They report at conventions, conferences, the
Congressional Record, and write closed captioning for the hearing
impaired through Movie and T.V. broadcast captioning.
Did You Know …?
- A recent survey showed the average annual income of court reporters and voice writers to be $61,830.
Voice often earn up to $100,000 a year and more.
- You can learn the career of voice without having a formal
- You can train yourself in the comfort of your own home.
- There is a severe shortage of voice writers all over the entire
- Large cities are experiencing a shortage of voice writers, and
many small towns and rural areas often have no voice writers
Did You Also Know …?
-It is NOT
necessary to have a college degree.
-It is NOT necessary to invest a large amount of money in equipment
to begin working as a court reporter.
-It takes less time to learn than stenography but pays as well.

inexpensive ways to train for the career in voice writing or court
Who Are You and What are Your Qualifications?
I am a partner at the World Wide Court Reporting School. Our school
provides an on-line at home training program that has been developed
to allow you to attain the 225 word per minute speed level and gives
you practice material to perform at 240 words per minute in the
comfort of your own home.
I developed this course as a career voice writer/court reporter with
over 20 years of experience and research. I personally have worked
on Capitol Hill, SEC, DOL, DOD and Pentagon. I have worked many long
hours as a result of a shortage and realized there is a growing need
for voice writers.
I’m providing you this opportunity because of the growing need in
the field and the income one can obtain. Again, this will depend on
how much or little the reporter works. By-the-way the Department of
Labor with the American Disabilities Act has mandated the need.
I also want to move into a different field myself such as teaching
which is something I truly believe in. This is not only a good
service to the public but a challenge for me.
I designed this program specifically for the people interested in a
voice writing career who truly need a COMPLETE TRAINING SOLUTION from
beginning to end.
I furnish you this information about myself so that you may feel
confident the voice writing at home online-training method which is
backed by many years of professional court reporting experience and
court reporter education. I KNOW what is necessary to become a voice
writer as soon as possible and as easily as possible. It has been my
experience that voice writer students require a great deal of
explanation and guidance about their lessons and motivation from
experienced court reporting instructors. Because the voice writing
training and membership program was developed specifically for home
study students, and the World Wide Court Reporter School provides
SIMPLIFIED theory, in a simplified online support format allowing
the student to become successful.
Are You a Candidate to be a Voice Writer?
- Do you desire a professional career with a salary range of up to
$100,000 and more without having to attend college?
- Do you have good English skills?
- Do you possess a good vocabulary?
- Are you motivated and dedicated?
Do you have the initiative and self-discipline to study at
Distance-learning voice writing students must have a good understanding of how to use a computer, how to solve problems with a computer and use technical assistance, how to use the Internet, how to install and use Windows, IBM Via Voice software, and other possible software programs.
Online-learning requires students to be able to know how to download software from the Internet such as Windows Media, Real Player, Flash plug-ins and Adobe Acrobat. You must know how to easily use search engines such as Google, how to download software from the Internet, and how to navigate through a website using provided links.
Distance-learning courses give students greater freedom of scheduling, but they can require more self-discipline than traditional classes. Successful students
should have at least 10 hours
a week to devote to focused learning to make the necessary progress.
Let’s Face it!
Some people learn best by interacting with other students and
instructors. Others can learn better by listening, reading and reviewing
on their own. Distance-learning courses provide less opportunity for
group interaction than most typical on-campus courses.
Some students prefer the independence of Distance Learning; others
find the independence uncomfortable and miss being part of the
classroom experience. Distance Learning requires you to work from
Students who do well in distance-learning courses are usually
comfortable contacting the instructor as soon as they need help with
the course Print materials are the primary source of directions and
information in distance-learning courses.
Most people who are successful with Distance Learning find it
difficult to come to campus on a regular basis because of their
work, family or personal schedules. But setting aside specific time
for assignments, discussions, IM discussions etc. are important.
Check Out The Current Opportunities In This
Field.....They are Everywhere!
If court reporting is the goal, student voice writers will practice
additional jury charge material up to 200 wpm and testimony up to
225 wpm. Academic courses will be added in English, Medical
Terminology, Legal Terminology, and Deposition Procedures. Students
will be asked to arrange to intern with local court reporters. World
Wide Court Reporting School may assist in arranging this. Some
students may live in states that require testing to become certified
In their traditional role as the guardians of the record of court
proceedings, a voice writer court reporter is at the front and
center at controversial and highly publicized cases - criminal
trials, millionaire divorces, government corruption trials, law
suits against everyone from rock groups to elected officials to
Most of the estimated 50,000 court reporters in the United States
work in court or as freelancers hired to report pretrial
depositions. Their job has two parts. First, reporters capture the
words spoken by everyone during the proceeding. And second, they
prepare a transcript of the proceeding. The transcript helps
safeguard everyone's rights in the legal process. When litigants
want to exercise their right to appeal an unfavorable decision, they
will rely on the transcript to provide an accurate record of what
transpired during their case.
Court reporters are taking their skills and technology to another
level by providing instant transcripts on computer screens as the
trial or deposition is going on. Known as "real-time voice writers,"
this process allows court reporters using speech technology to
produce English text instantly. The text is then displayed on
computer monitors or projection screens for viewing by larger
groups. It is especially helpful in providing deaf or
hearing-impaired people with the same legal benefits as hearing
Court reporters - including deposition reporters and broadcast
captioners - earn an average of more than $60,000 a year according
to statistics provided by the National Court Reporters Association.
The U.S. Department of Labor projects that court reporting job
opportunities will grow as faster than court reporters themselves
for all occupations through 2012.
It must be understood that this is a field most difficult to enter
as a graduate of the program without experience in these other
careers; however, the exceptional voice writer may be accepted.
Advanced students may prepare for this career by practicing material
from actual broadcasts or archived audio from various websites. The
World Wide Court Reporting School will provide additional
information on other skills needed in addition to accuracy in
translation. Upon demonstrating voice-writing proficiency of 180 wpm
and above on unfamiliar literary material, the instructor will
assist in arranging intern work with a captioning company.
A skilled voice writer operating as a broadcast captioner monitors
newscasts or television programs and captures the words of the
speaker(s) by repeating (parroting) into the speech recognition
technology software resident on his/her computer. The training to
reach the accuracy demanded in this field is extensive and
difficult, but the financial rewards are attractive. The field of
captioning expanded because of the Telecommunications Act of 1996,
which empowered the Federal Communications Commission to regulate
closed captioning. In August 1997 the FCC implemented Section 305,
which requires that by January 1, 2006, 95 percent of all new live
programming must be captioned.
To accommodate this change in government policy, captioning
companies and broadcasters will need qualified voice writers to
caption tens of thousands of hours of live programming every week.
The speech recognition software is available in the major foreign
languages and the demand for these skilled professionals is
Usually this type of work entails captioning pre-recorded material. Most work in this area must be done at the offices of the company providing the service due to extensive amount of equipment needed to produce the final product.
The voice writer captions pre-recorded video programming such as movies and television programming. They must possess good English and computer skills in addition to learning time codes and how to synchronize them with the captions. Most of this work must be done in the offices of the employer due to the extensive equipment needed to perform these operations.
Open Captioning - CART Providers
Voice writing students interested in providing this service to deaf or hard of hearing students in college classrooms will be expected to demonstrate a literary skill of 180 wpm. Recorded classroom lecture material will be offered to familiarize the student with this environment. CART Guidelines will also be studied. Employment opportunities may require the student to be on-site, but remote work allowing the graduate to work from home may also be available.
Deaf and hard-of-hearing students in colleges and universities all over the country have the right, under the Americans with Disabilities Act, to request the accommodation of a real time voice writer to assist them in their classes while attending school. One of the marvelous advances with emerging technology in the last decade is that we have eliminated distance as a barrier to access. Regardless of where you are, if you have access to telephone lines or the Internet, voice writers can provide this service. In some areas, these providers are called Remote CART (Communication Access Real time Translation) providers.
These trained voice writers can now perform the same tasks as those
using word processors, but instead of stroking one key at a time on
a keyboard, the voice writer can now speak into a microphone to
accomplish the task in a much shorter time. Employment opportunities
here are endless, but the user will likely need to provide his/her
own computer system and microphone in the workplace. Again, some
work can be done from the home. (Note: Most legal transcriptionist
work from home.)
Now There is a Wonderful Way to Bring the
Career of Voice Writing Right Into Your Own Home
Two unique concepts distinguish a voice writing
a membership on-line training program. The World Wide Court Reporting Program is the
ONLY home study/membership self-training program offering
step-by-step full motion video and screen capture video training
technology in voice writing.
This concept is the next best thing to having an experienced court
reporter trainer in your home. We provide videos that cover all
aspects of your training from setting up the computer through
instruction on how to master each lesson and unique speed building
concepts that have shown to be extremely effective! In conjunction
with the Online Support, your online virtual tutor will take you through
This program in voice writing training operates under the name World
Wide Court Reporting School. Our school developed this distance
learning program membership program when inquiries were received from all parts of the
United States indicating the difficulty in finding training
facilities in their geographic area using speech recognition
Our membership site has skillfully designed this program to minimize the
student's total financial commitment. This basic software is the
foundation of more sophisticated and expensive software programs
used by court reporters and captioners, but our school prefers to
help the student master good translation accuracy at the higher
speed levels with this basic software first. Even with using the IBM
Via Voice software alone, there are employment opportunities
providing classroom captioning, offline captioning. webcasting, and
other specialized transcription services. At the time when someone
decides to take the next step to court reporting and/or captioning
careers, the more sophisticated software needs to be purchased. The
World Wide Court Reporting School can help you with that
Student voice writers will need a computer on which to load the
software. A notebook computer allows the most flexibility in the use
of your skill once you are ready for employment. The computer must
have Windows XP and a processing speed of at least 2 GHz. RAM of 1
GB is acceptable; 2 GB is ideal. Before starting to train, it will
be necessary to purchase either a headset/microphone or speech
silencer mask. The headset/microphones can be purchased at any
computer store ranging from $40 to $70. The steno mask which is
necessary for voice writing can be purchased at a website which will
be provided for about $350.00 Since captioning, webcasting, and CART
providing can be done from home, you could train for that career on
the open microphone. The mask (with dual microphones, volume
sensitivity, and USB adapter) can be ordered directly from The World
Wide Court Reporting School at an approximate cost of $270. Speech
silencer masks are needed for the court reporting environments.
Training with both the mask and headset can be done, but in that
case the software must be trained under two different usernames.
Once enrolled in the training program, the voice writer will have
access to on-line screen capture videos and/or MP3s which can be downloaded with
the training materials in
both text and audio format. The training material is dictated in
5-minute segments beginning at 140 words per minute and progresses
in 10-word increments up to 180 words per minute literary with one
speed level per CD. Each audio contains from 12-15 selections. The
voice writer will be given a study guide with instructions on how to
proceed through the material and email graded tests to the
instructor for evaluation. Three tests graded to 95% are required in
each speed level. When reaching the final speed level, unfamiliar
testing material will available to be downloaded to the student in
mp3 format and the student will be expected to voice writer the
material and immediately email the unedited, uncorrected test to the
instructor for grading. Students will also email weekly assignments
in vocabulary building and current events.
Is Financial Aid
Assistance Available For Students?
Any school offering the
federally funded financial aid programs incurs many added costs to
be able to offer that assistance, plus having to be nationally
accredited. Those costs are added on to the tuition costs for
students. Voice writing students who choose to receive financial aid
assistance are obligated to pay that debt whether they graduate or
not, and the payback time can be as much as ten years. Therefore the
World Wide Court Reporting School has chosen not to provide federal
aid assistance to students at the present time.
Q. What are some Other
characteristics needed in order to be a successful voice writer?
A. The obvious ones are determination, thus making learning this
skill a high priority. Anyone with lazy speech patterns will be
discouraged from beginning. The software must be able to recognize
clearly enunciated words with a minimum of slurred words of phrases
that are run together. The voicing technique needed has been
described by some as being almost robotic in sound, and not the
normal conversational speech pattern. Prospective students are
encouraged to have a phone conversation with the director, so the
director can make an informal evaluation.
Q. Who are good candidates for this training?
A. Some successful candidates are those wishing to re-enter the
workforce, or someone with the desire to increase their earning
potential. Dropout students from traditional steno training schools
would likely be able to reach their original goal through this
method. Court reporters who suffer from repetitive stress disorder
or carpal tunnel syndrome would find learning this skill does not
require a lot of keyboard usage that may have caused the problem in
the first place. Anyone with a physical disability that doesn't
impair their speaking voice could benefit from this since skill
development and employment can be operational from home
Q. Isn’t it fairly simple to just talk into the
speech recognition program?
A. Developing good voicing technique is a learned skill
especially since mastery of speeds of 200 wpm and above is needed in
these professions. It is different from conversational speech. Some
people take longer than others to master the skill of listening,
repeating, and enunciating clearly at increasing speeds. The program
starts students at about 130-140 wpm allowing them to develop that
skill, then push them along as fast as possible when they
demonstrate the real time accuracy of each speed level.
Q. How is ‘realtime’ voice writing different from voice
writing or mask writing?
A. When adding the word “realtime” we are establishing that
speech recognition software is being used so the text can be
displayed instantly, as opposed to voice writers or mask writers who
record the spoken words into recorders for later transcription.
Q. Do we have to voice homonyms differently in order to
get the right translation?
A. Speech recognition software uses artificial intelligence to
determine which word is appropriate in the sentence. As each word is
translated the software has analyzed the previous two words for
Q. How large is the resident dictionary in most speech
recognition software programs?
A. The speech engine we prefer is the IBM Software that has been
incorporated into the expanded speech recognition software. It
contains a huge dictionary including most geographic locations, many
proper names, and some medical terms. Additional words can be added
as needed, especially when encountering foreign names.
Q. Why is it recommended that students start training
from the beginning on the speech recognition software?
A. The focus must always be on developing the real time skills
that are needed in most careers. Professional voice writers have a
distinct advantage when producing the end product in real time.
Beginning from the beginning on SR software actually shortens a
student's training time.
Q. Is there placement assistance for graduates?
A. The partners at World Wide Court Reporting School have many
years of experience in the educational fields of these various
fields, thus has many contacts. Once a student has acquired the
skill that the school feels is acceptable, assistance will be given
for the student to intern with certain companies or individuals, but
students are encouraged to develop their own resources in their
geographic area. Placement cannot be guaranteed.
Q. How soon before unmanned speech recognition software
replaces human voice writers?
A. It is not likely for several more decades. Humans are needed
for instantaneous insertion of punctuation and speaker
identification at the appropriate places to attain accurate
translation and readability. There will always be speakers that
mumble, or do not speak loudly, or clear enough for the microphones
and computer to pick up his/her speech and convert it to text
accurately, or people who talk over each other. In those scenarios
it would be impossible for a speech recognition system to separate
out the words or accurately translate the speech. The World Wide
Court Reporting School Self-Training Program is the ONLY complete
home study, self-training program written and produced specifically
for on-line self study with ONLINE SUPPORT.
