Arkansas School of Court Reporting
The Pursuit of Excellence
Sarah Flynn, CCR, CVR-M, started her career working as a secretary and paralegal in the Little Rock area in 1988 while attending college at the University of Arkansas Little Rock. Loving the legal field but wanting to move on to a job with more flexibility, she was presented with the opportunity of taking a voice writing course designed by Horace Webb, the inventor of the Stenomask.
After completing the course, Sarah was certified in Arkansas in September 1994, passing the entire test on the first try. She then began practicing as a freelance reporter in the Little Rock market until 2003, at which time she opened Arkansas' only full-service litigation support firm, Flynn Legal Services. Providing court reporting and valuable litigation support services to attorneys and paralegals, FLS now employs 15 full-time court reporters throughout the state and six in-house support staff.
The formation of the Arkansas School of Court Reporting in 2006 was because of the necessity to employ properly trained professional voice writers. Finding the available voice writing programs did not provide enough real-world education and training to meet her standards, Sarah designed her own course to train voice writers not only how to pass a certification exam but to be professional voice writers striving to reach realtime and to be the best that they can be. Sarah has successfully trained and mentored dozens of successful practicing reporters and is committed to the field of court reporting and advancement of its high ethics and principles, along with promoting the use of speech recognition software and realtime technology.
Sarah's goal is to provide qualified students the opportunity to train for a
professional, life-long career with excellent income potential along with a flexible schedule and to honor the profession of court reporting by providing the best training available. Realtime techniques are taught using the theory developed by world renowned realtime voicewriter, Bettye Keyes, CCR, CSR, CVR-M, RVR. Sarah's goal is to teach you to become a realtime voicewriter using Bettye's techniques in conjunction with Dragon Naturally Speaking Professional and Eclipse Vox.
In early 2010, Sarah recognized the need nationally for a proven
voice writing training program and proceeded to take her classes completely online so that anyone in the nation or even the world could participate in her proven program. Now ARSCR has students participating in the exciting online Elearning program from all over the country!
You will find that Sarah is both a cheerleader and a mentor for her students and she keeps the excitement level up while students learn
the skills required to be successful court reporters. She is committed to her students' success in every way and personally grades all homework assignments to ensure that her students are receiving the best instruction in the marketplace today.
