CATalyst Student

Item Number 39272
price per Kit

Get ahead of the game by having your own CATalyst software at home while you are still in school. Don’t practice blindly. Writing in realtime instantly identifies your strengths and weaknesses so you can progress faster. When you are ready to go to work, simply upgrade your Student software to CATalyst Pro and you're ready to go.

You'll be in the company of thousands of professional court reporters and captioners who use CATalyst software. Start out using one of the theory dictionaries that is included with the software or use one from your school or teacher. You'll get to work making it yours by adding words and phrases as they come into your steno vocabulary. 


CATalyst Student has all the robust features as CATalyst Pro but with certain restrictions to prevent its use as professional software. These restrictions will not prevent a student from using CATalyst effectively in a classroom or on-line environment.
