ASE Scoping Testimonials
Devon Roberts was recommended by a friend and colleague when I was seeking a proofreader who uses Eclipse. I was a brand new court reporter at that time scoping my notes and building my dictionary. Devon stood out because she spent 15 or 20 minutes on the phone with me discussing how I could improve my process using hyper-keys, in turn making my job more enjoyable!
Not only does Devon catch my spelling bloopers like "fist" instead of "first," but she also leaves me comments with helpful grammar and spelling rules according to Merriam-Webster and Morson's. That way, I can avoid making the same mistakes over and over again. Alas, fewer now than when we began working together.
I've recommended Accolade / Devon to about a dozen colleagues, and I'm not guarded about keeping Devon a secret because Devon has a fabulous network of scopists, some of whom were court reporters at one time, all over the United States! Therefore, I also work with another scopist who is equally proficient and friendly, and I know that my transcripts are in good hands with Accolade Scoping.
Oh, and Devon is also a person, not a faceless name. She is more than happy to talk on the phone about questions or something fishy in a transcript. I look forward to a long and fruitful relationship with Accolade Scoping and Devon!

Every single job I send for proofing, Devon goes above and beyond. Not only does she have very careful eyes, she's almost always available for any questions you may have. Being a newish reporter, I always have tons of questions that I usually like to ask by using push pins and hidden texts in my transcripts. The first transcript I ever got back from Devon, not only did she take the time to answer my questions, she cited exactly where I could find answers in Morson's. WOW. That is not part of her job description as a proofreader at all. She genuinely cares about helping and she wants to make us better reporters. Devon gets five stars and two thumbs up!

Right after I turned in the last transcript that you proofread, I got a call from the ordering attorney. Of course I was nervous!!!! I called him back and he launched into this wonderful praise of court reporters and professionalism and great transcripts. And of course I eagerly accepted the praise and ate it up. But honestly, that was mostly having a great proofreader behind me. So I wanted to share the praise and once again say, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!

Hi Devon, Thanks so much for your hard work last week. I couldn't have met the deadline without you!
Thanks again, and I'll be sure to send you some non-rush work.

Devon, I want to thank you so very much for the excellent and expedient job you did.
I will forward your information to others in the courthouse. I also want to thank you for the English lesson notations. That was awesome. I will never forget how you jumped in without a second thought, not to mention it was a weekend.
Thank you, again. I will be calling you again.

I am very, very pleased with how Kristina scoped my job. The lawyer spoke very fast and she had every word. The few things I found when I proofed it was punctuation inconsistencies which is no biggie. There are few preferences I have that I can email her. Other than that, fantastic job.
I would like to have her scope for me again.

I highly recommend Devon Roberts/Joyful Scoping for scoping or to even help you find a scopist that meets your needs. I have been using Devon for the last 4 years or so to scope work and she does a superb job! She is very efficient and produces a very clean transcript in a timely fashion! She does excellent work and is a pleasure to do work with! Also, she has been very helpful in setting me up with other reporters to scope work when she is too busy or unavailable.

Becky Pinckert was one of my scopists, and I was really impressed with her work.
She was so great with her punctuation, and there were very minimal changes that I had to make on my end. She left nothing for me to look up on my own. The transcript was really easy to read, and she was very fast in her turnaround.
