Your job as a Scopist is to read and edit computer-generated machine shorthand notes taken by court reporters. Using a computer program called computer-aided transcription software (CAT), you will edit written text for transcript production.
Scoping provides flexibility in choosing how many hours you want to work. You can work out of your home, in a Scoping freelance firm or in a Court Reporting firm.
Scopists are independent contractors and paid by the page and receive an average of seventy-five cents per page. Depending on the density of the material and the clarity of the court reporter's shorthand notes, A public study shows scopists can edit between 15 and 30 pages an hour.
