Can you type like a court reporter?

The average person types at a speed of 40 words per minute, while court reporters and transcribers are trained to type at a high rate, such as 60-70 WPM.

In fact, one of our court reporters at Neal R. Gross can type 130 WPM. That is an incredible amount of speed.
