  1. Thanks for adding this to your FAQs (not sure how long it’s been posted). It’s a very good explanation of how digital reporting/recording will affect proofreading. This perspective is encouraging.

  2. You said: “If digital technology were to ever replace steno reporters entirely, it would probably cause the transcripts to be in terrible shape… so they’d need proofreaders MORE, not less.”

    In this type scenario, though, wouldn’t the corrections be more the responsibility of people like scopists versus “just proofreaders”, since the person cleaning up the file would, more than likely, need to listen to audio and make corrections and have to fill-in-the-blanks…and also perform true editing functions?

    Thank you for your thoughts on this…

    1. Even well-scoped transcripts may not be completely error free. That’s where a well-trained proofreader comes in — to be that last set of eyes and catch any stray errors!
