Arlington Career Institute’s Court Reporting Voice Writing Program is an online program only and offers the freedom and flexibility gained through online learning.
The Court Reporting Voice Writing Program at Arlington Career Institute will prepare you for a career as a court reporter, closed captionist, CART provider (Communications Access Realtime Translation), or official judicial reporter.
Arlington Career Institute’s comprehensive program trains you in courtroom and deposition procedures, computer-aided transcription, word processing, closed captioning, and realtime reporting.
A voice writing reporter speaks directly into a handheld stenomask recording device. The reporter repeats everything that is said and can identify speakers, insert punctuation, and provide readback.

“I could not have better things to say about this school. This is my third court reporting school, and I absolutely LOVE it! It has a much more personal and family feel to it. It's a smaller school, so everyone actually knows everyone, and the staff and the teachers really care about the students and making sure the students succeed. I am almost done with my studies here, and I will miss this place so much! I know I have succeeded because of this school, and if you are thinking about getting back into school, or into school for the first time, I highly recommend giving Arlington Career Institute a call.”
“I absolutely love my school. I feel like the instructors truly care and want to see us succeed when we leave. I am in the court reporting program and have a long ways to go but I have had to take academics with teachers from other programs, medical and paralegal. I have made many friendships that I know will last forever! If you want to go to school in a specific field and do not want to have to take a bunch of prerequisites I HIGHLY recommend giving ACI a shot!”
