Presenter Bio: Anissa Nierenberger, RPR, CRR, CRC, CRI, B.S. Realtime Reporting, has pursued her passion for stenography in three distinct areas; her proprietary software Dictionary Jumpstart, her captioning company Captionique, and as a coach and trainer in her educational programs. Anissa started broadcast captioning in 1992 and has captioned for over 50 U.S. local news markets, NBA, NFL, MLB, and NHL. More recently she’s captioned events on Facebook and Amazon.

In 2000, Anissa founded Dictionary Jumpstart, a realtime dictionary-building software that has helped hundreds of reporters improve their dictionaries and allowed them to explore other areas of reporting, including captioning and CART captioning. As an author, Anissa has published several articles as well as five books. She’s also a past president of MAPCR (Michigan Association of Professional Court Reporters).

Anissa started training reporters in 2013 and offers one- on-one realtime training, CART training and broadcast captioning training. She’s helped hundreds of reporters achieve their realtime goals including slashing editing time, passing the CRR, and transitioning into captioning.

In 2022, Anissa created STENŌphonătic, the only card game in English and steno for word fanatics!
