"My dad was a court reporter from the late 1960s just before I was born up until he passed away in 2007. He worked in district court, state court, federal court in both Atlanta and Miami and even owned his own court reporting firm here in Atlanta. I remember as a kid his transcribing notes to type up the transcripts. We were not allowed to go downstairs and make noise during the process. I saw the changes over 40 years in technology and efficiency. I even made money working for him formatting discs and proofreading transcripts. He would have loved to see what you have put together here and in your gallery there in New York!"

Angie KerschenGA

"I wish we could clone the Gallery of Shorthand and place it in every courthouse. Such a complete overview of the profession from top to bottom - past to future - it shares so much information in such an effective manner. Bravo!"
