For Experienced Legal Transcriptionists. The Digital Scopist course will quickly train skilled transcribers to efficiently edit and proof AI produced rough-draft legal transcripts into a final or near-final-ready legal transcripts. The course is designed for experienced legal transcribers and scopists who want to expand their knowledge and skills in order to utilize the latest technology to produce legal transcripts faster and more efficiently.  If you already know how to produce a legal transcript, you do not need to take the “Basics of a Legal Transcript” module and can go straight to the technology and practical training modules.  Most participants are able to get through this part of the course within 15 to 20 hours including practice sessions and exams.

For Experienced General Transcriptionists. The course is also perfect for individuals without direct legal transcript experience. If you are already a proficient transcriber, and have good listening skills, can type 40 or more words per minute, have a good command of English and grammar and are attentive to detail, then the Digital Scoping course will prepare you to be a qualified digital scopist, ready to start working in the legal and court reporting industry. In order to succeed in the course, you will need to start with the Basics of a Legal Transcript module prior to starting the technology and practical training part of the course.  The average non-legal trained transcriptionist can typically get through both the knowledge based and practical modules within 30 to 40 hours.

In only a few hours of self-paced online learning and practice, you will significantly improve your transcription efficiency.  Many digital scoping course participants are now able to produce legal or general transcripts 2 to 4 times faster by leveraging the methodologies and tools learned in the course.
