The CCR "backup" test allows candidates to record the test dictation and produce a transcript from the recording rather than having to produce a transcript from their voice alone. The test is given by the NVRA and candidates do have to pass the NVRA written test along with the Georgia written test. Candidates taking the backup test will receive a CCR, Certified Court Reporter, designation and not the national designation of CVR, Certified Verbatim Reporter. With this certification, they can only work in Georgia. Learning to dictate at 225 words per minute takes practice and time. Because this test allows candidates to produce a transcript from a recorded dictation instead of their voice, test readiness can be reached much sooner.
