What is Scoping?

A scopist is a professional transcript editor for court reporters. However unlike an editor or a proofreader, a scopist has the ability to compare a court reporter’s shorthand to the finished transcript. By “scoping” the transcript, mistranslate errors can be identified thereby helping the court reporter preserve an accurate record.
