A multi-level method designed for different user needs, but using a common core of abbreviation rules. At present, there are computer programs which transcribe human speech directly without the need for a human stenographer.
Write a group of words, perhaps five or six, and then start with the first one again, repeating the whole group a total of maybe five times or until you feel comfortable writing them. If you're scribbling away and then can't read back what you've written, the dictation was too fast.
Written Pitman looks geometric. Different pairs of sounds, represented by short and long strokes in Gregg, are represented by thick and thin strokes in Pitman. It is simpler than Pitman Shorthand, without the need to use both thick and thin lines, or diacritical marks.
Who can be conscious of judgment, memory, and reflection, and doubt that man was made to act. When speed is important they are often omitted.
Written Gregg has a forward slope and graceful forms much like cursive handwriting. Different pairs of sounds, represented by short and long strokes in Gregg, are represented by thick and thin strokes in Pitman. We know today that human ears cannot even distinguish individual words at that speed so such claims become moot.
Today Blissymbolics is used to provide individuals with severe speech disabilities a written language to communicate in, although its more idealistic intentions have not been forgotten. Pitman vowels are not connected to the shorthand outline and are indicated with dots and dashes, written after the outline is written.
Soon after the turn of the s, the shorthand machine was developed by Ward Ireland Stone. Gregg Simplified High but less than above Moderate Was also used in court work by a few people; capable of words per minute with adequate work.
The two major contenders for symbol systems listed in the table above are Pitman and Gregg.
It is not phonetic, but instead is based on the standard alphabet, and so retains the inadequacies of that alphabet. A few questioning souls, however, will realize that longhand sucks, and will seek alternatives.
With vowels things are even worse about 20 spellings per vowel sound. Multiple forms of the same letter may indicate whether a vowel precedes or follows the first consonant.
If you want to download an Anniversary Gregg text for free, it can be found at http: Teeline Shorthand Teeline Shorthand is taught to journalism majors in some Commonwealth countries, mainly the UK, but is little known elsewhere. Hybrid systems, such as Teeline.
Speedwriting, Stenoscript, Forkner, Easyscript, AlphaHand, Baine's Typed Shorthand, HySpeed Longhand, Abbreviatrix, Quickhand, and Carter Briefhand are examples. Keyscript, a new system based on Pitman's, claims to be the fastest of the Alphabetic systems.
Few if. Alphabetic systems such as Speedwriting, Stenoscript, Forkner, and AlphaHand, where sounds are represented by letters of the alphabet as well as a few symbols, c.
Hybrid systems, such as Teeline. While Teeline is based on alphabetic characters, it appears to be much more like a symbol system since so little of each letter is written. Speedwriting, Stenoscript, Forkner, Easyscript, AlphaHand, Baine's Typed Shorthand, HySpeed Longhand, Abbreviatrix, Quickhand, and Carter Briefhand are examples.
Keyscript, a new system based on Pitman's, claims to. I couldn't tell you the difference between Alphahand and Speedwriting, but I can tell you about another system. Personal Shorthand is a little different than the systems we usually discuss in that is is English spelling dependent.
Alphabetic shorthand systems use characters from the Roman alphabet.
They drop most vowels, use semi-phonetic spelling and are twice as fast as writing longhand. There are several alphabetic shorthand systems, including EasyScript, Forkner and Speedwriting. Like other so-called alphabetic systems, it was a combination of alphabetic letters plus some symbols.
As others have noted in this forum, most alphabetic systems use symbols because letters such as m and w are just too slow to write.Speedwriting alphahand and other alphabetic systems
