RPR, CRR, CRC, CRI, B.S. Realtime Reporting
Since 1992, Anissa Nierenberger has pursued her passion for captioning into three distinct areas; Anissa Captions, her proprietary software Dictionary Jumpstart, and training and education programs. Anissa discovered captioning when she was just 14 years old after spending a career day with a reporter in court. Determined to become a stenographer, she pursued her goal and within a year of graduation from court reporting school, she began captioning for TV stations across the United States and Canada.
Anissa has researched and compiled over 200,000 words that make up 10 different modules and Add-Ons in Dictionary Jumpstart. DJ is the only realtime dictionary-building software in the industry and it has helped hundreds of reporters improve their dictionaries and their realtime.
As an author, Anissa has also published several articles as well as five different books that have helped stenographers write shorter, improve translation and pass realtime certification tests. Over 1200 stenographers have successfully attained their realtime goals and certifications after training with Anissa.
Anissa's extensive experience as a captioner for over 30 years includes:
“Anissa is a phenomenal teacher! She’s really found her second true calling.”
“Training with Anissa was invaluable! It was well worth the investment. I realized how much I was paying to the IRS every year and decided it was time to start spending some of that money on bettering my skills. It’s the best thing I ever did, and I had fun while I was doing it! My writing looks so much better. I have cleaned up a lot of word boundary issues and learned lots of new briefs at the same time! Anissa is so calm and patient and seems to have an answer for any conflict. Thanks, Anissa!”
“When I started One-on-One Training with Anissa, I don’t think I had a clear understanding of what we were going to do. I love what we’re doing! And I now understand that having the best dictionary you possibly can is what makes you a great reporter.”
“Anissa’s workshops make a difference! Because of the consistent system that I learned in ‘What’s in a Name,’ my jobs are smooth sailing! Her presentation on brief families inspired me to add a new family every day. One brief family alone has saved me well over 10,000 strokes in the last two years! I’m a better and more confident writer! Anissa is a gift to our profession.”
“I felt like my job was in a rut. I saw a decline in my skills and wasn’t sure why. Training with Anissa has changed my life! I’m seeing improvement every single day!”
Anissa is an entertaining and engaging national presenter. She has traveled to over 44 states and spoken on the subjects of realtime, captioning, dictionary building, and Dictionary Jumpstart along with being a frequent presenter at NCRA annual conventions.
