The Court Reporting/Closed-Captioning curriculum prepares students for a variety of careers that utilize computer-aided real-time translation. These include judicial reporting (city, state and federal court systems, as well as legal depositions and arbitrations), the closed-captioning industry and other venues requiring real-time translation for the hearing-impaired, such as educational environments, conferences and conventions. Students are prepared in computer-compatible machine shorthand at 225 words per minute and transcribe regularly on professional computer-aided transcription systems. Upon graduation, they are expected to be computer proficient. This program includes an internship, which is served in both judicial and non-judicial settings.
