Who We Are
A Reporter's Paradise is a Case Catalyst scoping and proofreading team that includes a former court reporter and scopist – the perfect team! Together, we are dedicated to producing accurate transcripts in a timely manner to make YOU shine.
Accurate and Timely Transcripts
We offer court reporters security, knowing their work will be completed efficiently and accurately. Being a former court reporter, I completely understand the difficulties reporters face on a daily basis in the performance of their duties.
Maintaining an updated dictionary is of the utmost importance to a court reporter. Having a scopist that is proficient in reading steno notes will be able to assist in maintaining a dictionary.

Back To Top
We will edit your transcript verbatim, correct mistranslates and untranslates of steno notes, use proper punctuation, English, and formatting.
We read steno and also read for contextual sense, continuity, and detail. We will help you build your dictionary by sending dictionary updates to you.
We have excellent research skills and will research spelling and terms closely.
Your personal preferences will be followed. We will make every effort to streamline your job by returning the transcript so it is ready to go. Our goal is to do all the legwork for you. All you have to do is concentrate on your writing skills.
Proofreading Includes: Punctuation, spelling, reading for context, and spot-checking with audio. We will flag areas for you to check by using Hidden Text right inside the transcript. We will also point out problem areas or consistent mistakes and suggestions on how to avoid them.
We will automatically make corrections to punctuation, spelling, missing words, etc., to save you time from having to go back and change something like it’s to its.
Have More Time for Yourself
We view the court reporter-scopist-proofreader relationship as a partnership, and we will do everything in our power to ensure that it is an experience in which we both benefit. As a court reporter, you will be able to spend more time reporting and thus increase your income. And the money you spend on scoping fees is a tax deductible expense. So you win both ways.
I’ve searched for years for a good scopist. I honestly was about to give up until I found Carol. If I’m in a crunch, last-minute notice, she’s there and always turns jobs in early and clean. Not only did I find a good scopist, I actually found the best scopist.
Michelle S., Court Reporter
I have known Carol for 30 years, first as an outstanding court reporter, and for the last six years as my proofreader and scopist. Carol is very adept at extremely difficult expert testimony, especially medical and engineering. She is always there waiting for that unexpected expedited or daily copy order. Just knowing Carol is there when I make that call to see if she can help me meet those sometimes overwhelming deadlines is so comforting. She just extinguishes the stress and anxiety away immediately. Her expertise with punctuation is beyond compare. Bottom line, she makes me shine!
Cheryl F., Court Reporter
