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.
