What is the BIVR?

The British Institute of Verbatim Reporters is the leading organization for verbatim reporters in the UK. BIVR members work in many spheres of the law such as the High Court, Crown Courts, tribunals, and inquiries. They write machine shorthand using Stenograph, a variety of Palantype system machines, or Pitman handwritten shorthand.

BIVR members work with deaf and deafened people as Speech-to-Text communication supporters. BIVR encourages real-time skills which are used extensively in complex cases. Television subtitling is also carried out by some of their members. BIVR has a long and rich history. It is the successor organization to the Institute of Shorthand Writers, incorporated as long ago as 1887.
