South Australian Owned | Operate Nationally

About Word For Word

We are a South Australian owned court reporting, transcription, and live captioning company. Our speciality is realtime and fast turnaround transcripts. Our mission is to impress our clients, and we collaborate closely with you producing the product and service you expect.

Word for Word Australia is owned and operated by Hilary Caddy and Tracy Ball, who are realtime stenographers-court reporters by trade. Far from stenography being a long-gone profession taken over by voice recognition and artificial intelligence, it is the complete opposite! We use modern technology to produce transcripts and captions at over 250 words a minute with 99.9% accuracy whilst customising outputs to suit your requirements. In our new COVID world we can work with you remotely and also in-house. But no matter which way you would like our delivery, you will always deal with a person who knows what they are talking about first-hand and if we don’t we will find out!

Between us we have over 50 years’ experience working in all jurisdictions of courts. That doesn’t count our team members! We know the difference between mens rea and mens rear! We can appreciate when you say your matter is urgent; in which case we will deliver.

Our Difference

We combine state-of-the-art software solutions with traditional reporting methods and knowledge to produce the best product for you.

Only using Australian transcribers, both stenographers and typists who are experienced in the field, we can guarantee you a professional service – and if we don’t deliver, we hold ourselves to account. Although we are the new kid on the block in terms of our company name, it doesn’t mean we don’t know what we are doing. Both Hilary and Tracy have years of experience working for organisations that are at the top of their game in terms of technology and delivery. We use our knowledge to help you achieve your needs.

Information is worthless unless it is accurate and timely. That is why quality is so important to us – the quality of our service and the quality of our product.

Accessibility to information is essential and can be both life-saving and life-changing for consumers. Our experience in working in the live captioning sector for both broadcast and corporate services has set us in good stead to understand and appreciate how quality captions and transcripts are valued. Equality and equity are what drives us to make sure that important information is accessible to everyone; no explanations, no reasons – it is just there!
