I've Heard of Stenography. What Is It?

Stenography is another word for shorthand writing. It's any method of transcription that uses symbols and/or abbreviations to greatly speed up the writing process. If you have ever wished that you could write faster, better, and keep on top of your workload, shorthand writing is the way to go!

How Do I Learn Stenography?

By using symbols that are similar to letters, the shorthand uses movements that are not awkward and unfamiliar. People in every walk of life have improved their performance using this method.

Even though we live in an era of technology, we seem to be buried under more and more paper! With stenography, not only are your notes streamlined and organized, but less clutter means less confusion. You will no longer stare at your traditional notes, with words crammed on the page, and cryptic messages in the margins.

If you're like me, you wish every work phone call was recorded, because you're afraid of missing any information being given to you by the caller. Here is just one more way in which stenography comes in handy. In fact, stenography can be applied to all facets of your life, from taking phone messages while driving to journalling to brainstorming. What will you do with your extra time?
