Real-time Stenographer

As a BBC-trained Speech-To-Text Reporter, I help to limit the barriers faced by those who are deaf, deafened and hard of hearing. Using the latest technology by Stenograph (the Luminex machine), I sit in on meetings and as they progress, type what is being said. This allows my clients are able to be part of the ongoing conversation.

With more than 11 years’ experience, I am confident in delivering this type of invaluable service in both formal and informal situations. In my career I have helped with everything, from people concerned about the background noise in their coffee shop catch-ups, to providing concise real-time speech-to-text translation for the UN.

I greatly enjoy my work and my passion for helping others continue their lives has earned me the reputation as a friendly, reliable and hard-working Stenographer.

Delivering great service is important to me and so I specifically tailor my services to each client’s needs. If you are interested in hiring me or finding out more about what I do and how I may be able to help you, please get in touch. I’d love to hear from you.

“Amanda truly cares about the people she works with, and this is reflected in her work and in the relationships she’s built with her clients. Her skills and experience as a writer, coupled with her knowledge of the hardware and software unique to stenographers, positions her as a leader in the industry, but it’s her desire to help others, that really sets Amanda apart.” – Fellow Stenographer, Laurie Vanasse, October 2015


How does it work ?

The steno machine is used to transcribe speech into shorthand, which is then translated into standard writing.

Computer software translates the shorthand to ordinary writing shown on the screen.

The machine consists of 22 keys plus a space bar. Multiple keys are pressed to spell out words much like written shorthand.

"I am a Cochlear Implant user prior to which I was partially deafened at the age of seven. I first met Amanda when she was recruited to STT as a stenographer for me where I was on a Disability Panel at a level which I could not cope without interpretation. Amanda has a high standard of language efficiency and accuracy and is easy to get along with." - Client, June M Neale (Mrs) BA (Hons), March 2012
