Steno To VoiceResource Sheet (NCRA Annual Convention)
The national organization for voice writing court reporters is the NVRA, National Verbatim Reporters Association. Their website is www.nvra.org. NVRA promulgates educational materials and seminars, training and certification, as well as advocacy for voice writers. One of the CORE tenets of the NVRA is to be “the silent voice.” IN OTHER WORDS, you should NOT be heard as you dictate. This is not to say NO sound will come out – some sibilance and perhaps some breathy sounds may be heard, but reporters should NOT be heard as dictating actual words.
