Christine Phipps, RPR, from West Palm Beach, Fla., a veteran when it comes to working with realtime scopists, shared some insights and tips with attendees at TechCon about successfully working with realtime scopists. Phipps provided the audience with an overview of how she works with two realtime scopists located in Alaska and California respectively, as well as a proofreader. Among her tips: the realtime provider and the scopist must have the same document settings such as margins, paragraphs, and tabs; compression settings need to be checked so there is enough time for audio to be pushed up to the Internet; access to good quality audio is critical to ensure scopists can deliver the highest quality product.
