Court Reporting is a sector of the business industry and is licensed in Texas by the Judicial Branch Certification Commission (JBCC). Most court reporters work in courts or legislatures. However, some work from either their home or a central office providing broadcast captioning for television stations or for hard-of-hearing individuals. A court reporter makes a verbatim record of legal proceedings in a courtroom or deposition setting and provides a certified transcript for use by the legal profession. Simultaneous captioners provide similar transcriptions for television or for presentations in other settings, such as press conferences and business meetings, for people who are deaf or have hearing impairments.

The Court Reporting Machine Scopist Certificate is designed for dual enrollment, providing high school students the preparatory education and experience in the court reporting industry. The certificate is to be used as a stackable credential in the Court Reporting Program.
