Court Reporter Services


A certified shorthand reporter does not take down minutes, but rather provides a verbatim transcript.   In order to provide the most accurate record, there may be instances where he/she asks the speaker to speak up or repeat themselves.   The reporter must be seated in a location at the venue where he/she can see and hear each speaker.  If this meeting is open to the public, anyone speaking must state their name before speaking.

The reporter will also need:

  • Meeting agenda, if available
  • List of any scheduled speakers
  • Copy of slides, if applicable
  • A desk/table on which to place equipment
  • A power outlet
  • A direct audio line, if possible
