The “Backing Up” Lady

This is an eyewitness account of a convenience store robbery.

Get out your steno machine. Open a realtime CAT file. Create a Job Brief for “backing up.”

As a reporter, it is your job to report the proceedings. This video is very funny. Can you work your steno magic and not get distracted by the witness’s mannerisms and personality?

    • She is fast. That’s for sure. The reporter’s secret weapon is the ability to slow down the witness. Captioning is another story. They can’t stop the speakers; so they have to learn how to drop in such a way that the story is still understandable to the viewing public.
