How it works

The Process

After confirming availability, e-mail your transcript in PDF format to

Need help converting your file to PDF? It's easy! Click here for instructions. 

I will confirm receipt of the transcript, as well as rate and deadline, via e-mail.   


I will edit directly onto the PDF using red ink and yellow highlighting.

My standard resources are:

  • Morson's English Guide for Court Reporters

  • The Gregg Reference Manual

  • The works of Margie Wakeman Wells

  • Merriam-Webster dictionary

  • NCRA guidelines

I strongly encourage all of my clients to fill out the Reporter Preference Sheet. This will guarantee that I am proofing to your standards right from the beginning, as well as proofing to your preferred resources. 

Receive it

I will email you a PDF file of the annotated pages only. 

Please make sure you have the latest version of Adobe Reader to see the corrections. If you do NOT see both yellow and red corrections, make sure your Adobe Reader is updated or contact me. 


What I Look For


Spacing//Alignment//Specific state formats//Address formats//Names & Numbers//Listing and formatting of exhibits


Light research to confirm spelling of names & places//Spelling consistency throughout//Homophones


Ensures maximum readability//Correct usage of parentheses, commas, semi-colons, quotation marks, hyphens, etc.


Proper nouns//Generic vs. brand name medicines//Legal titles (Court, Defendant, Plaintiff, etc.)

Word usage

Dropped words//Swapped words//Incorrect words


Title page matches the notice//Exhibits correctly marked//Inclusion of Certificate of Oath & Reporter's Certificate//
