Upbeat Audio T613-BNC Boostaroo for All Audio Application

One of my favorite court reporting gadgets...and a necessity...is the Boostaroo. With bad acoustics in state court and unpredictable audio feeds in federal court, not to mention ventilation systems in office buildings, the Boostaroo will help filter out much of the white noise. #ncratechnologycommittee

The Boostaroo is a unique portable pocket amplifier for personal audio devices and laptops. It solves the problem of low volume from personal portables, including Mp3 players, Pocket PC's, laptops, portable DVD Players, CD and tape players.

Court Reporting in a Nutshell...Thanks to Jerry Kelley for sharing this.

Court Reporting Program is more than just learning to type
DMACC has a new courting reporting program that was launched in August, 2014 on the Newton campus.
Dr. Patricia Ziegler is the program’s professor and chair. She was program coordinator at St. Louis Community College before coming to DMACC.
According to Ziegler, students develop to write 225 wpm with 95 percent accuracy.
“Students learn to write machine shorthand (basically a foreign language) on a steno machine (23 keys). Multiple keys are used at the same time (much like playing a musical instrument),” she said.
Ziegler added in order to meet 225 wpm, students use a special technique of shortening words, briefs and phrases that is similar to writing text messages.
“For example, scene of the accident is written SNAX. The word ‘today’ is written TOD; the word ‘tomorrow’ is written TORM,” she added.
Ziegler said court reporting is different from other forms of reporting: it makes use of what is called a steno machine.
“Court reporting is taking down the verbatim, word-for-word transcript of a court proceeding using a steno machine,” she said.
According to Ziegler, official court reporters are employed as official court reporters, but they could also work as freelance court reporters or broadcast captioners.
“Freelance court reporters are often self-employed or work with a freelance agency to take depositions, or short transcripts of an eyewitness account, an expert witness, etc. Court reporters are also broadcast captioners, providing captions for all live television programs. CART providers provide transcripts for deaf and hearing-impaired students,” she said.
According to the National Court Reporters Association, the average salary for a court reporter is $62,000 and can pay up to $100,000. Jobs relating to the court is projected to grow by 14 percent through 2020, that is according to the U.S. Bureau of labor Statistics.
What does it take to be a good court reporter?
“Attention to detail, good English skills, discipline to practice, interest in law and language,” according to Ziegler is a great way to start in earning their way to become good court reporters.
She has a BA in Business Education from Augustana College, Sioux Falls, S.D., Master’s Degree in Adult and Higher Ed Administration from University of South Dakota, Vermillion, S.D.
She also has a Doctorate Degree in Education Leadership & Policy from University of St. Thomas, St. Paul, Minn.

Congratulations to Rosalie Kramm and Toni O'Neill for their new appointments. The court reporters of CA and everywhere could not ask for better advocates of our profession.

DRA CONGRATULATES GOVERNOR BROWN ON APPOINTMENTS TO THE CALIFORNIA COURT REPORTERS BOARD

Earlier today, Governor Jerry Brown announced that he was appointing Rosalie Kramm and reappointing Toni O'Neill to the California Court Reporters Board.

"The Governor is to be congratulated on naming such outstanding professionals to this important licensing board," said Vicki Saber, DRA President. "The board is charged with safeguarding the excellence, integrity and impartiality of our profession to the benefit of consumers. Rosalie is a brilliant choice and will be a terrific leader, and Toni has already proven herself to be an outstanding Board Member and Chair."

CONGRATULATIONS AND WELCOME!
Rosalie Kramm, CSR, RPR, CRR, CLR, has been reporting since 1981 and founded Kramm Court Reporting in 1985. Rosalie currently serves as President of the Society for the Technological Advancement of Reporting (STAR) and has been selected to be an ambassador for NCRA to Russia. She has served as President of the California Deposition Reporters Association (DRA) and as President of the General Reporters Association of San Diego. Rosalie is also a Certified LiveNote Trainer and a frequent presenter for advanced workshops on the use of interactive realtime software. Ms. Kramm is a registered Democrat.

CONGRATULATIONS AND WELCOME BACK!
Toni O'Neill, CSR, RPR, Board Chair, was appointed by the Governor to the CRB as a licensee member in 2010, to a term expiring June 1, 2013. For the last 20 years, Ms. O'Neill has been employed by the Riverside Superior Court as an official court reporter, and she currently holds the position of supervising court reporter. Ms. O'Neill is one of the first official court reporters in the state of California to provide realtime services for use by judges and attorneys during courtroom proceedings and has maintained an interest in the integration of court reporter technology into the judicial setting. Prior to 1990, Ms. O'Neill worked as a freelance court reporter, which included being an owner/partner of a deposition agency for seven years in the Riverside area. O'Neill is a director of NCRA and a past president of CCRA. Ms. O'Neill is a registered Democrat.
It appears as though the Governor elected not to re-appoint Board Member Reagan Evans, CA-TX CSR, RMR, CRR, CCRR, CLR.

"Reagan has been a tireless, dedicated and effective Court Reporters Board Member and champion of fairness and of consumers," said DRA President Saber. "We at DRA are so grateful to her and will always value her friendship and service. We all owe her our gratitude."
