Scoping involves reading and editing computer-generated shorthand notes taken by court reporters. Using a computer program called computer-aided transcription software (CAT), you will edit written text for transcript production.
Scoping provides flexibility in choosing how many hours you want to work. You can work out of your home, in a Scoping freelance firm or in a Court Reporting firm.
Many students work as scopists while completing their Judicial Reporting/Court Reporting & Closed Captioning program.
Certificate of Completion in Court Reporting-Scoping/Transcription: $2,281*
