What equipment do you use?
Case CATalyst Edit, latest version; high-speed internet access
Is scoping the same as proofreading?
Scoping is not the same as proofreading. Proofreading occurs after the transcript has been scoped and sent back to you for review.
I will always strive to produce the cleanest transcript possible for you, but anything that gets missed should be caught by the proofreader.
Do you add the title, indexes, and certificate page?
Of course! Just send me all the necessary information, and I'll take care of it for you.
How are flags used?
If I come across something I have a question about or something I cannot resolve, I will flag it for you using the Case CATalyst caret symbol (^). Flags are highlighted in blue and easily searchable by utilizing scan search.
Do I have to fill out the Reporter's Preference Sheet?
Knowing a reporter's preferences beforehand is invaluable in producing the cleanest possible transcript for you. The sheet only needs to be filled out once; after that, you can email me any changes, and I'll make the updates for you.
What reference materials do you use?
I use a wide variety of reference materials including various online resources, pharmacy lists, legal and medical dictionaries, StenEd Realtime dictionaries, and Morson’s English Guide for Court Reporters.
