Have you ever wondered how we know about things that happened in a closed meeting or court proceeding? Or exactly how the television knows what to display when closed captioning is in use? Project Steno is providing a window into that process, as well as a doorway into the profession. On today’s podcast, our host spoke with Nancy Varallo and Jim DeCrescenzo, executive director and president of Project Steno.
They discussed the reasons for the longevity of the profession, a few of the benefits of court reporting as a career, the unique viewpoint stenographers possess, and how Nancy and Jim were way ahead of the curve on “text speak”. “Court reporting offers a view into all the courtrooms throughout the country, the halls of Congress, Hollywood, Camp David. There’s no glass ceiling. We have a ringside seat to history,” DeCrescenzo said.
