If only we didn’t have to deal with boundary and stacking issues, we’d be better realtimers! If stacking and boundary problems have been plaguing you, this webinar is for you. As a “pro” stacker Anissa has resolved over 400 issues in her 30-year captioning career – and she’d love to share her solutions with you. Be prepared to resolve issues that might have been troubling you for a very long time!

Learning Objectives: Applies to NCRA 3.04

  1. Resolve word boundary issues in realtime AND in the dictionary! Most reporters do one, but NOT the other. Consistency is KEY to having the best realtime possible.
  2. Resolve stacking issues and learn new outlines for stacked words.
  3. Understand why the dictionary is one of the most important tools a reporter possesses.



Anissa R. Nierenberger, RPR, CRR, CRC, CRI

Anissa has been a captioner for 29 years.  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 also published several articles as well as five books.  Her latest book, Terrific Tidbits was just released in May. Anissa started training reporters eight years ago and offers one-on-one realtime training, CART training and broadcast captioning training. She’s helped over 1,000 reporters achieve their goals of realtime, passing the CRR and transitioning into CART and captioning careers.
