Dear Work- at - Home - Parent:

I am a professional voice writer and I am a partner at the World Wide Court Reporting School. No, this is not another work-at-home business opportunity with glamorous promises.

Never-the-less, have you ever wished you could really work from home? As a legal transcriber you can commute to the "office" in your jammies. Make 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 make.

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.

Good News!

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 Voice Writer!

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 classroom

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 education.
- You can train yourself in the comfort of your own home.
- There is a severe shortage of voice writers all over the entire United States.
- Large cities are experiencing a shortage of voice writers, and many small towns and rural areas often have no voice writers available.

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.

Introducing….

The World Wide Court Reporting School’s SIMPLIFIED and unique on-line seminar training course and membership site program. It provides for step-by-step training with experienced instructors with over 10 years of experience. It is one of the most inexpensive ways to train for the career in voice writing or court reporting

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 and consulting 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 home?

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 written directions.

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!

Court Reporting

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 to practice.

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 ballplayers.

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 persons.

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.

Broadcast/Closed Captioning

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 dramatically increasing.

Offline Captioning

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.

General Transcription

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 your training.

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 technology.

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 decision-making process.

Recommended Equipment

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.

Training Materials

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.

Questions and Answers

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 context.

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.
