Join us for “I Love Steno” Karaoke (Stenographers writing to their favorite love songs) in celebration of 2023 Court Reporting & Captioning Week (Feb. 4-11, 2023).
Are you a student who loves music? Do you like writing on your steno machine to music? If so, here is your time to shine and have some fun doing it.
Margary Rogers, RPR, CRI, an official court reporter from Washington, D.C., will once again host a steno karaoke night. She first dazzled students with Court Reporter Holiday Karaoke back in 2020, a virtual session where attendees wrote lyrics to songs such as “Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow” by Dean Martin and “Christmas Rappin’” by Kurtis Blow. The event was such a success that she reprised it with Court Reporter Karaoke nights for Court Reporting & Captioning Weeks in both 2021 and 2022. This year’s event, “I Love Steno” Karaoke, takes place on Friday, Feb. 10, from 7-8 p.m. Eastern.
Who: Steno writers will write to their favorite love songs. They will share their realtime screens and steno outlines so students can view the way each reporter writes and also enjoy the music at the same time.
Why: To inspire students to feel comfortable writing in realtime and have fun doing it. We also encourage students to practice to music that they like and to add new words to their dictionary. Steno Karaoke is also a way to bridge the gap between the students and the stenographers, letting students know that we all are human, that we all make mistakes, but we strive to write our best.
Participants must register in advance for this free karaoke event. After registering, they will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
