Resource Sheet (NCRA Annual Convention)
This is not a comprehensive list by any means, but it’s a start for you should you desire to research making a transition – whether due to injury or flexibility. This handout is meant to assist you in starting your research and for you to take notes on during the presentation.

The national organization for voice writing court reporters is the NVRA, National Verbatim Reporters Association. Their website is 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.

Learning to dictate quietly is KEY!

"I have employed Tori as a transcriptionist to prepare court transcripts for me for appellate work on at least a dozen occasions since 2001. Her work is great, and I highly recommend her."

Mike H.

"Tori never fails to go above and beyond the call of duty for her profession, her clients, and her mentees. Her leadership, skill, and dedication to the profession are admirable qualities."

Crystal J.

"I have worked with Tori as both a mentor and scopist extraordinaire. She comes through in a crunch, saves you time, and does impeccable work. The edited file is sent back and easy to search and check spots. The dictionary she makes with each job as she sees how you write has helped me grow my main dictionary and have better translations with each subsequent job."

Aimee E.

“I have worked with Tori and The Last Word, Inc. on numerous depositions. She is a consummate professional, both in a deposition setting and in all dealings with Carolina Custom Video. Her firm is one I recommend to other legal professionals when they are looking for court reporting services in North Carolina.”

Bob C.

"Tori’s work is always accurate, timely, and complete. It’s an added bonus that she’s an absolute joy to work with. I highly recommend Tori for any reporting project."

Chris G.

“I have three basic expectations of stenographers – accuracy, invisibility, and punctuality. Pittman Stenography routinely accomplishes all three. Tori also ably and constructively works with attorneys on all sides of a case to meet their needs and is pro-active in her approach to evolving technologies in the stenographic field. A true professional.”

Todd S.

“Tori is always professional and conscientious! She helps me edit my realtime using Connection Magic, which makes my jobs that much less stressful. Even with the most difficult of jobs, she has a smile on her face!”
