Find Freelance Stenographers for Your Projects
Stenography or shorthand is the usage of abbreviated writing to capture entire text or speeches. Other terms used to describe it are Tachygraphy (swift writing) and Brachygraphy (short writing). The process of writing in shorthand is called Stenography and the person who accomplishes this is a Stenographer.
When you hire a freelance Stenographer, they use different techniques to accomplish the task. The most common one is called The Pitman method. In this, importance is given to sounds of speech or phonetics rather than spellings. The said method employs a separate set of symbols such as thick lines, slashes, and dots for consonants and vowels. Thus with their expertise, Stenographers will help you to capture the speech, lecture, or address in verbatim. You can find the services of a Stenographer for hire from one of the best freelance marketplace websites like Guru.
What Does a Freelance Stenographer Do?
A Stenographer specializes in taking dictation in shorthand. With accuracy and speed, they can quickly understand words that are spoken and convert the same into a written transcript. Most of them can type up to 300 words per minute (wpm). They also have an excellent grasp of the language, with respect to grammar, spellings, and punctuation. This is helpful while proofreading and then compiling the documents for records or printing. Thus, their services are very valuable when you want the proceedings of meetings or lectures to be captured. Professionals who offer freelance Stenography services may use devices such as stenotype machines, recording devices, microphones, audio, and video equipment, etc. for doing their work efficiently.
Stenographers generally have a certificate or associate's degree in this art. In addition, they may have cleared external examinations and hold valid licenses from reputed authorities. For maintaining official written transcripts of legal proceedings you may employ the services of Freelance Court Reporters. These experts attend trials and hearings and write an accurate, unbiased record of these events that can be further used as a reference by lawyers, judges, plaintiffs, defendants, and the jury as needed.
