From The Author

Everyone can agree, no matter what side you're on, that these are exciting but controversial times we live in, where many critical and pivotal issues with immense and lasting consequences for our country and the world are playing out in our courts of law, our news media, and our legislative government.

With the advent of the "fake news" era, at no time in history has it been more important that events and speech be recorded accurately and protected assiduously.

As the impartial verbatim reporter, the official "keeper of the record," you have a ringside seat to the history of now and also the honor and responsibility of preserving exactly what you witness.

It is crucial that you are a highly skilled realtime writer and that you possess a strong moral character. You should have the best foundation upon which to build your speed and accuracy. StarTran Online will give you that and more.
