Intersteno’s 2018 Internet Keyboarding Competition being held April 23 through May 9 via its website allows steno machine writers and other keyboarders to test their skills and find out how they rate worldwide. Registration for Intersteno’s Internet Keyboarding Competition closes April 22. NCRA members who place in the contest will be listed in upcoming issues of the JCR and JCR Weekly.
“Please participate. It’s fun and only 10 minutes of your time,” said Tori Pittman, FAPR, RDR CRI, a longtime participant of the contest and chair of NCRA’s Intersteno Task Force. “You can write in steno or just type on a 101-key standard keyboard.”
Pittman is a 2017 Intersteno Bronze Medalist in the category of overall Speech Capture and a three-time Intersteno Gold Medalist in the category of voice Speech Capture. She is a freelance court reporter and agency owner from Wake Forest, N.C.
Competitors will use the Taki software, which is a free download on the Intersteno website, and can participate on a day of their own choosing between April 23 and May 9. It’s up to the individual to decide how they want to enter the competition.
Court reporting programs can register groups of students and host a competition for a class or entire school in conjunction with the event. Court reporting students who are interested in participating should contact their instructor about registering.
