Where to learn shorthand for free network?

I want to learn shorthand (shorthand) for free. Any free tutorials Internet?

There is so little demand for shorthand these days that can be difficult to find a good place to learn. The Pitman system and the system Gregg are the two most frequently mentioned. The sites I listed probably will not fruitful, but it should give a good start. These links are also given links many other sites that may be useful. Good luck with it.

Stenography Machine

stenography machine
The Passport is the first really new steno machine in a long, long time. At its heart are optical sensors. These sensors are not only inherently precise, they detect both what you’re writing and how you’re writing.

Think of it this way. Old-fashioned steno machines register your steno strokes using the equivalent of an on/off switch. That doesn’t give your CAT system much information to work with. The optical sensors in the Passport are more like dimmer switches. They don’t just pick up which key you pressed; instead, they register HOW you’re writing.

At every moment, the Passport detects how hard you’re pressing each key, how fast, and whether each key is moving up or down. All this information is used by the Passport’s unique ShadowTrak technology. So your CAT system will wonder: Where did the stacking and splitting go?

Have you been second-guessing yourself as you write, worried about “stacking” problems messing up your steno translation? You’ll probably find yourself writing more confidently, maybe even faster, as you realize how well the Passport understands your steno strokes.

How does a machine Stenographer? I need to know the parts of the machine and what they do.?

I need to know what parts of a stenographer machine actually do, ie how the machine itself actually works.

It is the machine shorthand. Instead of using a regular (QWERTY) keyboard and typing a letter while writing the whole word or syllable at a time. The set of eight keys on the left are the beginning or initial consonant word or syllable. You then have the two keys will star in half. The last ten keys on the right are the final or final consonants of the word. The four keys on the bottom are vowels. The long bar across the top are numbers. There are many ways (called theories) to use the letters to form words. I can explain more, but this takes time because I'm long-winded (if you want I can ….) also check out www.phoenixtheory.com ('s the theory I use)

Legislation stemming from the Telecommunications Act of 1996 making closed captioning on television mandatory has greatly increased the demand for captioning services. Perhaps you are interested in becoming a captioner, either offline or realtime (live). It is easier to become an offline captioner than a realtime captioner, but there is more money, and possibly more job security, in realtime captioning.

Offline Captioner
The offline captioner captions pre-recorded video programming such as movies and television programming. Software for offline captioning is readily available and that offline captioning does involve some skill, such as learning time codes and synchronizing them with the captions, using computers, and having good English skills.

Some captioning services will transcribe a script before captioning, meaning that they listen to the video program and prepare a script to work with for captioning purposes. It is usually less expensive to caption if there is a prepared script already. The ease of getting into the business has helped to keep the cost of offline captioning down. In addition to independent captioning services, many post-production houses also offer offline captioning services.

Realtime Captioning
Becoming a realtime captioner, sometimes called a broadcast captioner, stenocaptioner, or real-time captioner, involves intensive training and practice. The realtime captioner may work independently as a contractor, or as an employee of a captioning service or television station. More court reporting schools and colleges, particularly community colleges, are offering broadcast captioning training to meet the increased demand.

This is a job that can be done remotely because it involves a link to the live broadcast feed, meaning telecommuting is possible. However, at-home broadcast captioner often have to buy their own computers, software, and captioning equipment. In addition, a realtime captioner must invest additional hours outside of the actual captioning, to preparing for a broadcast by making sure their equipment’s dictionaries are up to date with the terms that they will be captioning.

Stenographer Machine

stenographer machine

If you are just starting out in court reporting you probably want to keep costs as inexpensive as possible. Unless your school or online program requires you to start with a “real-time machine”, you can probably get away with purchasing either a Reporter or Secretarial model. This is a model that was manufactured approximately up until the early 1990′s. It has a rounded or bowl shape. They write on a spool ribbon to paper and have a manual touch. The brand new ribbons for these writers are readily available.

What’s the difference between the Reporter and the Secretarial models? The Reporter model holds a full pack of steno paper and the Secretarial holds a half pack of paper. Other than that the Secretarial is a little smaller in size. They come in charcoal (more like dark green), sand (tan), and avocado (light green) colors. Occasionally you will find painted models. Along with the machine you will also need a tripod, ink, a case, and paper.

What You Need To Know…

  1. All the very early Reporters and Secretarials didn’t have a final DZ key but had a final DS instead. All the modern theories use the final DZ. You want to make sure that you ask that question or you might end up with a useless machine. In some cases we can change out the keys, but with the labor it’s not cheap.
  2. There are also older “antique” writers being sold that use ribbons that are no longer made and impossible to find. Many of these are called Reporter models and look similar to the newer Reporter models. I would suggest that you stay away from any older writers unless you want to put it on a shelf and display it.
  3. Many of the machines have been sitting in storage and might require servicing. If the ad reads “keys work”, that really can mean nothing more than the keys will move the platen. The machine might still need extensive work.
  4. Occasionally you will find Reporter models with a upgraded switch plate allowing it to do realtime.
  5. Know your seller. That is check feedback and make sure there is a track record in order to judge who you are dealing with. Everyone has heard the horror stories when it comes to deals gone bad.
  6. Don’t assume anything and ask questions before you bid. Many sellers selling steno machines for other people and as a result the seller does not know about the product. There maybe inaccurate or just plain wrong descriptions.
  7. Check whether an item has a warranty. Don’t assume because the original buyer had a warranty that the warranty is transferable. Sometimes those warranties require a transfer fee.

Stenographer Career

stenographer career

Stenographers, more appropriately called court reporters, provide a legal accurate record of proceedings, meetings, and any event where exact written transcripts are necessary. They may also provide help to judges and lawyers who need information from official records. Stenographers not only record court proceedings; they also record daily and special events for the local, state, and federal government. The closed captioning on television is also the work of stenographers–in this case they are called stenocaptioners–where live programming is typed for hearing impaired viewers to see.

Qualifications vary anywhere from one year all the way to almost four years. Voice writing takes the least amount of time, while stenotypist education requires the longest. There are several technical/vocational schools, community/junior colleges, and colleges and universities across the country that offer a court reporting/transcription degree. In addition to training, states have their own requirements. Some states require the candidate to pass a state-administered test; other states require licensure. Some states only require the potential court reporter to be a notary. Certification by a professional organization is usually mandatory. There are different levels of certification and all reflect highly on the individual.

According to the BLS, www.bls.gov, the occupation of court reporter is expected to grow as fast as average for all occupations; the projections go through the year 2014. The average court reporter earned $42,920 per year in 2004.

Court Stenography

court stenography
During any court session, a record needs to be made and this is done by court reporters. While most people are familiar with the image of a woman pecking away at a stenograph machine in the courtroom, very few realize just what a court reporter does or that there are actually several different types of court reporters.

The job of a court reporter sounds simple, recording all events and words spoken during the court hearing, arbitration, or deposition. However, this is a position that requires skill and speed, as well as accuracy since the reports will be used for legal purposes.

Understanding the different types of court reporters, as well as the benefits and downfalls of each style of reporting will help you choose the best type for your purposes.

There are three basic types of reporting, which we will look at here.

  1. Steno Mask Reporting

    This type of court reporter is often found in political hearings and is a highly accurate form of recording everything that is said. The mask is a recording device that allows the reporter to repeat everything that is spoken in the courtroom. It also has a silencing device so that the rest of the room won`t hear what the court reporter is saying into the mic. The recording will later be transcribed by a professional, but these days a computer is often used with voice-recognition software to provide instant captioning and transcripts that can be viewed by the judge and attorneys in real time.

    During the court session, the reporter not only repeats everything that is spoken in the room, but also adds in any instructions or notes that might be necessary for the transcriptionist to know in order to correctly type out the records. Reactions and things that the people do in the courtroom when relevant to the case will also be reported.

  2. Steno Typing

    A stenograph is like a shorthand typewriter, which allows the reporter to press a number of keys at a time, that can be used to input a lot of information very rapidly and this is what most of us are familiar with when we think of court reporters. This machine requires a court reporter who is trained in its use and who can move rapidly, capturing all the information that is spoken during a court hearing.

    In many cases, a computer is hooked up that allows the attorneys to have a steady stream running across their monitor of what is being said, more or less in real time. This obviously requires very quick skills and the ability to transcribe what is being heard almost instantly.

  3. Electronic Recording

    The more modern approach to court reporters, of course, is to record everything electronically. While traditionally video is not permitted in the courtroom, recording devices can be used to record the sound that occurs. So anything that is spoken will be recorded. This is usually a very straightforward process and doesn`t provide the texted real time stream that the other two method can. The recordings are later transcribed by a professional transcriptionist.

    Using mics and a recording system works well in courtrooms where it isn`t possible for one person to hear everything being said from a single position, usually due to the size or shape of the room.

The type of court reporter that is appropriate for each case will depend partly on preference, but also on need. For a courtroom with poor acoustics, electronic recording is probably necessary, but if you need real time transcripts then either of the other methods of court reporting will be very useful.

Learn Stenography

stenography covers both the shorthand notes taken by secretaries during dictation, and it is one of the tools of a court reporter, who has to take notes on everything anyone says in a court proceeding. There are many systems of shorthand. The most popular and perhaps easiest to learn is Gregg shorthand. It was developed in 1888, but it has gone through periodic revisions to keep up with trends in language. You will need progressively more education if you want to become a personal note-taker, a secretary or a court reporter.

  1. Decide how you want to use stenography. If you just want to use it to take personal notes, you can probably get by with an online course. If you need to achieve greater speed and accuracy to work as a secretary, you will probably need to take a class in person. The feedback from an instructor needs to be more frequent and detailed than you can get from an online course.
  2. Start with something simple. Try writing your name in shorthand. In the process, you will be learning the system of phonetics that underlies shorthand.
  3. Learn all of the phonetic forms. Some will be simple consonant sounds (e.g., M, N, P), some will be consonant combinations (e.g., TH, ND, LD), and some will be vowels. It is important to become familiar with these before moving on to what are called abbreviations or short forms.
  4. Learn the short forms. Common words such as YOU, THE, AVAILABLE, and WILL might have a single stroke to represent the whole word. Find or make a list of them all so you can review periodically. The first form in the sample image is a combination of the short forms for THIS, IS and NOT.
  5. Find dictation texts; usually, business letters or speeches work best. Anything spoken that someone might want written down or transcribed is a good candidate. You can have a friend read them while you transcribe, or you can record them yourself and play them back to copy. If you want to improve your speed, you can read at different speeds. Dictation speeds are categorized by words per minute, so you will need to pace your reading using a stopwatch or clock showing seconds.

The idea of learning shorthand is to be able to take notes quickly and be able to transcribe them accurately. The reason people study a system is that it has been tested to cover all situations, and an idiosyncratic system you develop might miss certain points or be hard to read, especially when you come back to it days or weeks later.

If you want to become a court reporter, there is specific knowledge you will have to learn, so it might be best to start by taking a course. You might otherwise start with wrong ideas or bad habits.
