In the United States and Canada there is an ongoing problem within the field of stenography. The problem? There is a shortage of professional stenographers due to the alarming dropout rate from steno schools.

Why is this an issue? Without qualified stenographers, court rooms and services for disabled individuals will be negatively impacted. Stenography may not be a hot topic these days, but it is essential. Professional stenographers are utilized by the justice system for creating a record of the spoken word in courts; they are also used for closed captioning and other roles. The implications of too few stenographers could close many doors throughout society.

Fortunately, these consequences can be avoided—if stenography schools can adjust their instructional methods.
