Professional Court Reporter

Teri Gibson began her career as a  Certified Shorthand Reporter and began her profession as a Freelance Court Reporter in 1981.  The shorthand skill that she used is called stenography.  She has worked as a Court Reporter, CART Provider/CART Captioner and Total Eclipse Trainer.   

Through the years, the technology of the Total Eclipse Software has continued to improve and has allowed Court Reporters to work also as a CART Provider (also known as CART Captioner).  In 2001, she expanded her services to include CART Captions as a CART Provider for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing.

In 2016, she saw a need for basic training and became an Authorized Total Eclipse Trainer and created a program to give students an opportunity to create a strong foundation using the Total Eclipse Software. 

Teri Gibson has used the Total Eclipse  Software as a Court Reporter in the Federal Court, State Court, and deposition reporting.  As a CART Captioner, she has also used the Total Eclipse Software as a CART Captioner in Superior Court, community events, church services, funerals, colleges, universities, etc.

This trainer will help you build a firm foundation using the Total Eclipse Software, so that you can produce transcripts efficiently, on an expedited basis and daily copy.  You will learn how to use Connection Magic in the Total Eclipse Software and learn how to work in teams using the Total Eclipse Software.
