Briefs and Captioning: What You Did Not Learn In School
Captioning briefs aren't a focus in schools or the court reporting industry. Frequently spoken words in captioning are quite different from frequently spoken words in testimony and may even be different depending on the captioning job, whether it's academic CART, sports captioning, or news captioning. In this session, attendees will learn how to create captioning briefs that work with your theory, your fingers, and your brain. Bring your machine and participate in the Dictionary Challenge!

Kelly Linkowski has been captioning since 2003 from both the comforts of home and around the world. She believes passionately in communication accessibility, with captions being a part of the universal planning of all events, conferences, and entertainment not as an accommodation but as equal access. Linkowski has been a stenographic reporter since 1993. She says: "Our career has offered me the opportunity to schedule work around our family's schedules and needs, never having to figure out how to schedule things with work as the epicenter. I love this profession." She served as the 2019-2020 Ohio Court Reporters Association president and volunteers in caption-related committees with NCRA.
