Court Stenographers the people you see typing as the court proceedings are in progress.  These are not your standard typewriter but stenotype machines which can capture court proceedings a lot faster than normal typing due to shorthand characters.  At the end of each hearing, all stenographs are transcribed to the English language in print form and disseminated to court-authorized persons and become part of the court archives.
