The court reporting profession has come a long way since the ancient Sumerians began using cuneiform to keep records. Today’s court reporters use a form of shorthand that was brought to the United States in 1893 by John Robert Gregg. Since that time, even more technological innovations have been made in the industry and will continue to be made in an effort to improve accuracy and efficiency in recordkeeping.
