Steno Resources: Trial Transcripts

I Love Stenography Logo (Cropped)It’s a great help for students and new reporters to see what an actual transcript looks like. Being able to get a view of how all of the components of a transcript is compiled and presented is a necessary part of the court reporting learning process.

A Google search of “trial transcripts” will lead you to a variety of downloadable transcript PDFs. If you do this search you will find some pretty interesting and notable transcripts that can serve as a great study guide for you.

Happy searching!
