The National Network Reporting Company (NNRC) is pleased to announce our informational page on how the shorthand machine (or stenograph) works. Out of all the work court reporters do, how the magic little machine operates that allows them to type over 200 words a minute is by far the most mysterious.

On this page, readers can learn more about it in a quick, concise read. The page discusses how the average shorthand machine is divided in three sections– the initial keys, the final keys, and the second level– , and what exactly those three sections entail. In just a few minutes, readers can come away with a more precise understanding of what their court reporter does during legal proceedings.

Court reporters are key to discovery and depositions. They are the only way for attorneys to come away from a legal proceeding with a clean transcript in exactly the format they need. While not legally required, these transcripts are crucial to developing a solid case. Attorneys always come away from the service pleased with the results they’ve garnered.
