Stenograph and Project Steno Partnership

In December of 2022, Stenograph announced a partnership with Project Steno that provides CATalyst Student software to court reporting students who complete Project Steno’s Basic Training Program and are enrolled in a stenographic reporting program. Stenograph has been a supporter of Project Steno for years and is excited to partner with them for this incredible opportunity. You can read the Press Release here. 

What is Project Steno? 

Project Steno promotes stenography through community outreach, with the goal of building a robust pipeline of students into schools and more stenographic reporters into the industry. Their free online Basic Training program provides a hands-on opportunity for potential students to learn about court reporting and captioning before making a financial commitment to school. 

Why is Stenograph partnering with Project Steno? 

Stenograph recognizes that there should be an educated, certified reporter in every deposition or courtroom, remote or in-person. To meet the market demand, we feel a responsibility to help support and grow the number of students graduating from school and entering the field. Through this partnership with Project Steno, and providing free access to CATalyst Student software, we remove a financial hurdle for stenography students while starting them out with the most advanced CAT software in the industry. 

“The mission of Project Steno is essential to the court reporting industry as it faces growing demand at a time of labor shortages,” says Dan Denofsky, Vice President of Marketing for Stenograph. “Project Steno has helped attract, educate, retain, and graduate a growing number of students from court reporting schools. Stenograph is proud to partner with them as they help to cultivate a long-term sustainable industry. Students are the lifeblood of the future of Stenograph and the stenographic industry as a whole. We want them to be empowered with the best tools in the industry to be successful as they pursue a lucrative and exciting career in stenographic court reporting and captioning.”
