Speedwriting Shorthand


If you want to make some extra money or even start your own business with shorthand services, you will find that a lot of clients need this skill by their side for documentation purposes. Shorthand must be learned through a certification process or a class on shorthand, a multitude of these can be found online or at local colleges.

It is not something we are used to doing naturally. When you look at a piece of paper where someone has written in shorthand you might think it is a written code or even another language all together. In some ways it is actually both.

Sometimes shorthand can also be called speedwriting, because, in essence that is what you are doing. Just imagine (or even try this yourself) writing down a complete conversation on a pad of paper and a pen. It is really difficult! However, if you learned shorthand or speedwriting you would be able to do just that!

You can use this skill to write shorthand for doctors, solicitors, seminar speakers, and many more professionals. You can make great money with this skill, as there are not that many people out there who have this skill and can offer it as a service or business. As a professional offering your shorthand or speedwriting skills you can charge up to $25 an hour. Make profits part time for extra cash or start your own business with this newfound skill.

If you don’t know how to do shorthand then how about typing up dictated tapes from doctors, solicitors etc? This is known as a transcription service.

Transcribing documents for clients is rather easy, and even easier if you can type quickly. You take the tapes home and listen to them, typing up what you hear into a document. You should have some equipment for transcribing services, such as a headset to listen to the tape while you are typing, transcription software, and a foot pedal that will allow you to control the software without having to stop typing or even take your hands away from the keyboard.

The best part about transcription services is that you do not really need to learn a new skill or get a certificate to show what you can do. However, since you will be charging by the minute or hour you should learn how to type more quickly so you can earn more profits from your transcription services.

There are free tutorials online that can calculate how fast you can type per minute, and what your percentage of accuracy is. I recommend that you use one of these programs to help you determine how fast you can type so you can tell your potential clients. You should also use this software to teach yourself how to type even faster!

If you wanted to go into a specified field such as medical transcription then you would need to take some classes and get certified to do this work since you will have to know specific medical terms in order to work efficiently.

Start off by offering your services for free, this will get definitely get you work and you will be learning what to expect, the phrases, the people, the deadlines etc. Once you have some experience then as a transcription professional you can charge $20 an hour and you get to work from home!

In the court may have to suspend the proceedings to ask speakers to clarify all that is inaudible or not clear and while you're at work. An example of when you may be asked to address the room is when an officer of the court needs a transcript repeatedly. To verify the authenticity of the transcripts by the method of comparing the copies with the original part of their work.

As is fairly easy to see, Court reporters need good listening skills. His music skills must be honed to perfection, in fact. Nothing can be lost and all he said in court must be recorded.

In the end, I will not miss anything you said, do ya? So they are better able to make records of what follows and must be able to interpret what is being said, since it is saying. Sometimes, if it is not clear, as already mentioned, you should check what is said.

Time management is another skill that is invaluable in this profession. You must have excellent time management skills that includes not only its own time, but also other people's time.

In addition, you must have the ability to record everything that is said correctly. This indicates that you have accelerate their side.

Gregg Shorthand

gregg shorthand
Gregg shorthand, system of rapid writing based on the sounds of words that uses the curvilinear motion of ordinary longhand. Devised by the Irishman John Robert Gregg, who originally called it light-line phonography and published under that name in pamphlet form in 1888 in England, the system was taken in 1893 to the United States, where it is now taught and used more than any other system. It has also been adapted to numerous languages, among them French, Spanish, Hebrew, Russian, Italian, Tagalog, Chinese, and Polish.

Gregg Shorthand Manual

gregg shorthand manual
Shorthand is a tough but sometimes worthwhile skill. It is complex because it pushes the boundaries of peoples’ writing speed. Any shorthand system requires practice if you are to become fluent.

Gregg Shorthand is one of many systems you can choose from. They differ greatly, and the choice you make should depend on your preferences and needs. It is wrong to say that one is better than another in any absolute sense.

To learn Gregg Shorthand you must learn a new alphabet and spelling system. This takes lots of practice. At first the words may look like “meaningless squiggles,” but with practice you can come to read them as easily as longhand.

Some shorthand systems are based on the ordinary longhand alphabet. They can be easier for a beginner to learn than Gregg, but once fluency is attained that difference vanishes. Also Gregg is potentially faster to write. Some experts can write Gregg at over 200 words per minute. If you use shorthand to jot down odd notes, speed doesn’t much matter. But for dictation, it does, big time.

Gregg Shorthand Simplified, despite its name, is neither a dumbed-down shorthand nor a dumbed-down textbook. It is just the 1949 edition of Gregg Shorthand, and is so named because it is simpler than the earlier editions. Several further simplifications have been made since 1949. The current version is called Gregg Shorthand Centennial Edition.

Follow-up textbooks, shorthand dictionary, and other materials in Gregg Shorthand Simplified can be purchased only on the used book market, but they are plentiful and cheap. (Ditto for other out-of-date editions.) The Gregg Shorthand Centennial Edition books are still in print and costly.

…In Gregg, words are not written like Chinese, but are spelled alphabetically. It is true that abbreviations are only given for some words, but the writer is not expected to make up abbreviations for all the others. Instead he or she is supposed to spell them out in full, using the alphabet and spelling system furnished by Gregg. The textbook is designed to teach the user to do that. Gregg Shorthand can be used to write about any subject matter whatever, without made-up abbreviations or arbitrary symbols.

Shorthand Symbols

shorthand symbols
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.

Here are a few instructions used to develop a shorthand system:

Speedwriting

  1. Leave short vowels out and write long vowels only. So “you” becomes “u” and “are” becomes “r.” (This is a lot like text messaging abbreviations.)
  2. Use the letter “k” for the k or hard-c sounds, as in “kd” for “could.” Use the letter “j” for the sound j or soft g as in “aj” for “age.” Write the letter “c” for the sound ch as in “ec” for “each.”
  3. Become familiar with symbols. The word “the” is represented with a period and the end of the sentence is marked with a slash. For example, the sentence “The new book is big” is written as “. Nu bk s bg\”.

Forkner Shorthand

  1. Reduce the alphabet to 19 letters such as “V” for every and ever.
  2. Use symbols for vowels. For example, easy becomes “e-z”.
  3. Use brief forms of words such as “Db” for distribute. Use abbreviations and phrasing.
  4. Draw a line through the letters “C,” “S” or “T” to represent the sounds ch, sh or th.

EasyScript

  1. Divide words into five categories: simple, prefix, suffix, prefix/suffix and compound. A simple word is a word that doesn’t have a prefix or suffix such as “have,” which would be written “hv.” Another example of a simple word combination is “thank you,” which would be written as “ty”.
  2. Use a one-letter code for prefixes and suffixes. An example is “u” for under and the word “understand” would then be written, “usta.”
  3. Use more than one letter for compound words and separate with a slash, as in “co/ri” for “copyright.”

Use Alphabetic Shorthand

  1. Take notes in meetings or in class. Keep up with an interesting professor, lecturer or tour guide. Alphabetic shorthand allows you to catch most of the information conveyed.
  2. Jot down people’s orders at a restaurant if you’re the waitperson. Since shorthand uses the alphabet, the cooks should be able to decipher it. If in doubt, you can always put some words in longhand.
  3. Enter medical information with alphabetic shorthand if a medical employee. Doctors often use shorthand on medical records and in their notes.
  4. Use shorthand in your journal or diary. If you can’t write fast enough for your thoughts, alphabetic shorthand is a convenient way to keep up. In addition, snoopy people may have a more difficult time deciphering what you write.

Shorthand Writing

shorthand writing
If you are planning to become a journalist in print, TV, radio or magazine then you’ll definitely need to be able to write in shorthand. Even if you’re a freelance writer or author trying to have your work published then you will need to interview people for quotes and research. Shorthand will prove very useful for note-taking.

Working as a journalist or writer will involve interviewing people. You will need to write down snippets of what they say. They will be talking far too quickly – 180 words a minute is the average speed of normal speech – to write in longhand. This is where shorthand comes in. You can make accurate copies of what is being said. Recording equipment is legally not allowed in courts, inquests, tribunals, disciplinary hearings. This is why you will have to accurately report what has been said. And believe me, it’s almost impossible to remember long sentences and jot them down accurately in longhand.

Anybody who is enrolled on a journalism course at a college or university should have shorthand lessons included in the package. But perhaps you want to learn shorthand to boost your CV, for work as a secretary, or maybe in the past you could write in shorthand and want to improve the skills you once had. Whatever the case, having face-to-face lessons with a tutor is always the best method. This allows the teacher to give feedback on your own work and help you out quickly with problems you may have had. Tutors will also include with their lessons all the necessary equipment such as work books and recordings.

It’s essential that shorthand students listen to recordings of speech to practice. One fun way to practice is to write in shorthand what is being said on the news, in a TV program or in a song on the radio. The more varied and fun you make it the easier it will become.

Shorthand Reporter

shorthand reporter
A court reporter, stenotype reporter, voice writer, or stenomask writer is a person whose occupation is to transcribe spoken or recorded speech into written form, typically using machine shorthand or a voice silencer and digital recorder to produce official transcripts of court hearings, depositions and other official proceedings. There are two major methods of live person court reporting, machine shorthand and voice writing. Machine shorthand allows the stenotype reporter to keep up with the flow of speech so that no words are missed. The voice writer, on the other hand, repeats verbatim what attorneys, witnesses, and others are saying in a proceeding. In the United States, the court reporter is often also a notary public who is authorized to administer oaths to witnesses, and who certifies that his or her transcript of the proceedings is a verbatim account of what was said.

Write Shorthand

write shorthand
Shorthand is any system of rapid handwriting which can be used to transcribe the spoken word. Shorthand systems use a variety of techniques including simplifying existing letters or characters and using special symbols to represent phonemes, words and phrases.

Pitmans Shorthand was devised by Sir Isaac Pitman (1813-1897) and was first published in 1837. Over the years is has been gradually improved and has been also adapted for 15 different languages. The system was widely used in the UK and USA by secretaries, reporters and writers, but lost popularity with the invention of pocket tape recorders.

Gregg Shorthand was invented by John Robert Gregg (1867-1948) and was first published in 1888. Since then many different versions have appeared, including some for languages other than English. Gregg is still used, particularly in the USA.
