What's the difference between a court reporter and a stenographer?
A stenographer is a professional who has been trained to use a stenograph for the purpose of reporting. A Stenograph machine (also known as a 'Steno') is used by stenographers to take shorthand notes during court proceedings. The notes are taken phonetically and then edited post hearing to produce a more comprehensive transcript.
A court reporter is a professional writer who attends court with a laptop or writing pad and manually takes notes in shorthand which are then edited to create a more precise report post proceedings.
