    Darlene Parker, RPR

    Immediately upon graduation from court reporting school in 1974, Darlene began her career as an official at the Superior Court of the District of Columbia. 


    After 10 years of what she calls “hard labor,” she joined the National Captioning Institute (NCI) as a realtime captioner. She was only the sixth person in the country to provide broadcast captioning.  She has captioned a wide range of programming, consisting of national and local news, sports, and special events, including the Super Bowl, the World Series, and the Academy Awards. 


    She became a Realtime Supervisor in 1988, and since 2007 she has been the Director of Steno Captioning and Realtime Relations.  Ms. Parker has trained more than 200 captioners, including captioners from the British Broadcasting Corporation.  Her duties now include managing NCI’s Steno Captioning Department, assisting in the daily operations of NCI, and acting as a client liaison.


    She is a co-author of “Realtime Writing” and “Realtime Writing: Second Edition,” and has written many articles for the JCR.  She has taught numerous captioning workshops, seminars, and has served on various NCRA committees.  She holds a Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Alabama. 


    Ms. Parker is also an advocate and public education speaker for the American Cancer Society.  Being a breast cancer survivor of  36 years and a melanoma survivor of 10 years, she feels strongly about sharing her story of how early detection saved her life – twice.
