The development of automated voice and speech systems—the computer programs that automatically convert speech to written text—may have some effect on the court reporting field, but there are no current systems that can accurately handle multiple speakers, and it's unlikely that such technology will exist in the near future. Therefore, captioners and court reporters will be in demand for years to come. The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) predicts that employment for all court reporting occupations will grow slower than average, around 2 percent, for all careers through 2024. It reports that "all new television programming will continue to need closed captioning. Broadcasters are adding closed captioning to their online programming in order to comply with new federal regulations." Court reporters who are certified and who specialize in CART, broadcast captioning, or webcasting services will have the best job opportunities. Those with skills in foreign-language captioning will also have good employment prospects.
