Our program for Court Reporters and Stenographers offers some of the broadest coverages available and is written nationwide on Occurrence Forms.
Court reporters and stenographers create verbatim transcripts of speeches, conversations, legal proceedings, meetings and other events. Written accounts of spoken words or legal transcription are essential for correspondence, records, or legal proof, and court reporters provide those accounts. Court reporters play a critical role not only in judicial proceedings, but also at any meeting where the spoken word must be preserved as a written transcript. They are responsible for ensuring the accuracy of court transcripts and for providing a complete, accurate, and secure legal record. In conjunction with preparing and protecting the legal record, many court reporters assist judges and trial attorneys in numerous ways, such as organizing and searching for information in the official record or making suggestions to judges and attorneys regarding courtroom administration and procedure. Increasingly, court reporters provide closed-captioning and real-time translating services to the deaf and hard-of-hearing community.
Stenographer jobs are highly skilled positions that require extensive training in shorthand, as well as the use of the stenotype machine and related technology. Individuals in court reporter programs therefore spend a great deal of time working on achieving both speed and accuracy in stenography.

We highly recommend that you consider initiating a public liability insurance policy for word processing before beginning work since failure to have a policy in place leaves you open to liability claims which could have a very large effect on your business to the extent of bankruptcy. Having a public liability insurance policy in place frees up capital which would otherwise be retained for legal expenses and such like to cover any liability claims which may be made against you. For the small cost of a public liability insurance policy it just doesn’t make sense to leave yourself without a policy and open to receiving the full costs of a liability claim.
Employers liability insurance is a legal requirement if you have any employees, regardless of how often they work for you. Failure to have a policy in place could result in a fine or even a custodial sentence. An employers liability insurance policy for word processing would usually cover you for (among other things) employees who hold you liable for an injury which occurred while working under your direction. This is obviously one major item that an employers liability policy would usually cover you for.
