Electronic shorthand can be done anywhere
In days of old, journalists had to scrawl their notes with pen and paper – but only after studying for hours and hours and listening to endless shorthand dictation tapes!
When smartphones and tablets started to be used by journalists, they thought text-to-speech apps would be the revolution they needed. Sadly, they aren’t ideal. Notes still have to be taken but it’s hard work because few journalism schools teach traditional shorthand anymore.
Enter electronic shorthand. It’s a brand new method of shorthand for the digital age. You can take your notes anywhere – standing up, sitting down, hiding behind pillars! It will work on any device with either a keyboard or on-screen keyboard, so smartphones, tablets, laptops are all ideal.
