Happy dictionary building!
Love, Speed & Accuracy,
This paraffin bath is very soothing on the hands.
Quite a while ago, I discovered that using a back brace made my extensive steno practice sessions quite comfortable. It also helps when I have to lug my heavy equipment around the city.
If you’ve used a back brace, or will use a back brace, during long hours of writing on your steno machine, let me know how it worked out for you. Leave a comment. Did you feel more comfortable using the brace, or not using one?

Here’s a video showing some of the edit features of Case CAT.
This video shows how to keep names that begin with the title of Mr., Dr., etc., together with the person’s actual name on the same line of a transcript. The sticky space feature is explained.
The video also shows how to create a new paragraph. In my dictionary, I personally have PRAF/PRAF defined as a new paragraph, and PAR/PAR defined as a new line. There is also a demonstration of how to all cap a phrase, or to uncap a phrase (highlight it, then press Ctrl + F5).
[NOTE: During the video, the reveal codes is on (Ctrl + Shift + R).]
“Abused, Confused & Misused Words” By: Mary Embree
In the course of interning, I’ve sat in on quite a few legal proceedings that involved an interpreter.
Like witnesses, interpreters must be sworn in.
Hear are some standard oaths that can be used to swear in interpreters:
“Do you solemnly swear or affirm that the interpretation you will give in this deposition will be from English to Spanish and from Spanish to English to the best of your ability?”
“Do you solemnly swear or affirm that you will interpret accurately, completely and impartially, follow all official guidelines established by this court for legal interpreting or translating, and discharge all of the duties and obligations of legal interpretation and translation?”
