The NCRA New Professionals Committee is submitting a proposal to Google to get a stenographic-related doodle during Court Reporting & Captioning Week, and they need your help! Members are encouraged to submit their own proposal. A template is below:

O-BG TKPWAOLG (OK Google)

On behalf of the 16,000 stenographic court reporters and captioners we represent, the National Court Reporters Association requests a court reporting doodle while we celebrate Court Reporting & Captioning Week 2017 (Feb. 11-18).

Court reporters and captioners are grammar geeks and tech wizards. They can write 225+ wpm with 95% accuracy in phonetic shorthand using a keyboard with only 24 keys and a number bar. They are responsible for creating the official transcript of a trial or deposition and ensuring communication access to people who are deaf or hard of hearing.

[Court reporters and captioners: Feel free to insert 1-3 concise sentences here about why you personally think Google should have a court-reporting doodle.]

A doodle would be a great way to celebrate people in a unique profession who are largely working behind the scenes but whose work touches millions of people every day. Please send questions to pr@ncra.org.

Court reporters and captioners can submit the proposal to proposals@google.com.
