n.— «Stenocaptioners watch live programs, listening with earphones and typing on a stenographer’s keypad, which is different from a computer keyboard. The pad is connected to a software program that deciphers the keystrokes. After the computer interprets the words, telephone lines shoot the text back to TV stations with a lapse time of two to five seconds.» —“Closed-captioning stenographers in high demand” by Timothy R. Homan in Washington, D.C. Waterloo Cedar-Falls Courier (Waterloo, Iowa) Aug. 29, 2005. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
