    The National Court Reporters Association (NCRA) is launching a new campaign to promote "awareness of captions and advocate for the increased need for accurate, understandable, and timely captions." The movement will not only help those in need of captions but also protect the industry that provides them.

    For those of us who hear well, it's easy to forget about why closed captioning matters. On the other hand, individuals with hearing impairments and language barriers know why strong court reporters and accurate captions are necessary.

    Kay Moody and studentHobart, IN—College of Court Reporting (CCR) is about to reach its 30th year of operation. Kay Moody (pictured standing with a student to the right), founder of the college, never dreamed that what started as a small school in her home could have turned into the online innovator CCR is today. With over 250 online and onsite students, CCR would now like to invite the community to see what their support has allowed the CCR family to contribute to education.

    Over the years, the college has revised its curriculum to meet the high demands of today’s technology. CCR teaches all the courses necessary for a court reporting career, and students also have the opportunity to enroll in additional courses for broadcast captioning or communication access realtime translation (CART) reporting, which aids the deaf and hard-of-hearing. The school’s growth is largely attributed to its ability to innovate and develop instruction with technology in mind.
