    Kathryn Dittmeier, CRI

    Kathryn Dittmeier, CRI, has worked as an educator in the court reporting field for over 30 years.  Her passion for stenotype history was ignited while working for Stenograph as an Education Program Manager in the early 90s.  She had the opportunity to attend various conventions with Robert Wright, past president of Stenograph, who told her stories of the early days of the company and the development of the machines.  In the mid-90s she acquired her first machine, a 1911 Stenotype designed by Ward Stone Ireland.  Collecting of machines and information began in earnest after that.  While working as a Stenograph Training Agent on Long Island, New York, she met Dominick Tursi, founder of the Gallery of Shorthand.  A life-long friendship was established and she assisted with patent research and data acquisition for the museum.  Kathryn established The Stenotype Collectors Club group on Facebook and invites anyone interested in stenotype history to join.

    More and more lawyers and other legal professionals are using electronic trial presentation software to present evidence in court. If done well, electronic documents can improve the efficiency and effectiveness of a case. Poorly presented evidence, however, can risk both the case and the trial presenter's reputation.
