An Easy Way to Write Shorthand. The reader needed to use the context to work out which alternative was meant.
The main advantage of the system was that it was easy to learn and to use. It was popular, and under the two titles of Short Writing and Tachygraphy, Shelton's book ran to more than 20 editions between and Shelton's chief rivals were Theophilus Metcalfe 's Stenography or Short Writing which was in its "55th edition" by , and Jeremiah Rich 's system of , which was published under various titles including The penns dexterity compleated Another notable English shorthand system creator of the 17th century was William Mason fl.
Tombstone of Heinrich Roller , inventor of a German shorthand system, with a sample of his shorthand Modern-looking geometric shorthand was introduced with John Byrom 's New Universal Shorthand of Samuel Taylor published a similar system in , the first English shorthand system to be used all over the English-speaking world. Thomas Gurney published Brachygraphy in the midth century.
Gabelsberger based his shorthand on the shapes used in German cursive handwriting rather than on the geometrical shapes that were common in the English stenographic tradition. Hebrew Shorthand Taylor's system was superseded by Pitman shorthand , first introduced in by English teacher Sir Isaac Pitman , and improved many times since.
Pitman's system has been used all over the English-speaking world and has been adapted to many other languages, including Latin. Pitman's system uses a phonemic orthography. For this reason, it is sometimes known as phonography, meaning "sound writing" in Greek.
One of the reasons this system allows fast transcription is that vowel sounds are optional when only consonants are needed to determine a word.
The availability of a full range of vowel symbols, however, makes complete accuracy possible. Isaac's brother Benn Pitman, who lived in Cincinnati , Ohio , was responsible for introducing the method to America. The record for fast writing with Pitman shorthand is wpm during a two-minute test by Nathan Behrin in Not until the ability to write shorthand without mental hesitation has been acquired, should speed practice begin.
A student observing the note-taking of an experienced stenographer will be struck with admiration at the smoothness of the writing and the perfect regularity of the outlines. An excellent method of practice for the like facility is in the copying of a selection sentence by sentence until the whole is memorized, and then writing it over and over again. All notes taken at any speed should strictly be compared with the printed matter.
It will then be found that many words are taken for others because of the forms they assume when written under pressure. Most of these can be avoided by careful attention to the writing.
Experience alone will authorize any deviation from the text-book forms.
Phrasing should be indulged in sparingly on unfamiliar matter. But on familiar matter the student should always be alert for opportunities of saving both time and effort by employing the principles of intersection, elimination of consonants and the joining of words of frequent occurrence.
Nothing less than absolute accuracy should satisfy the student. Conflicting outlines should be carefully distinguished. Where words may be distinguished either by the insertion of vowels or the changing of one of the outlines, the latter should always be the method employed; vowels should freely be inserted whenever possible. The sense of the matter should be carefully preserved by the punctuation of the notes, indicating the full stop and leaving spaces in the notes between phrases.
The best matter of the for the student beginning practice for speed is to be found in the dictation books compiled by the publishers of the system. At first, the dictation should be slow to permit the making of careful outlines.
Gradually the speed should be increased until the student is obliged to exert himself to keep pace with the reader; and occasionally short bursts of speed should be attempted as tests of the writer's progress. The student ambitious to succeed will endeavor to familiarize himself with all matters pertaining to stenography.
How to Take Faster Handwritten Notes Using Shorthand Techniques
By reading the shorthand magazines he will keep himself in touch with the latest developments in the art. Facility in reading shorthand will also be acquired by reading the shorthand plates in these magazines.
For comparison and suggestion, he will study the facsimile notes of practical stenographers.
He will neglect no opportunity to improve himself in the use of his art. And finally he will join a shorthand society where he will come in contact with other stenographers who are striving toward the same goal as himself. In Europe, particularly in Great Britain there are thousands of educational institutions teaching Pitman's shorthand.
In the United States and some other parts of the world it has been largely superseded by Gregg shorthand , which was first published in by John Robert Gregg.
This system was influenced by the handwriting shapes that Gabelsberger had introduced. In many instances, no vowel marks are necessary. Vowels should, however, be marked in full the first time a proper name is mentioned or if the name has an unfamiliar spelling, it should be spelled out in regular letters.

Third-position marks for vowels occurring after a consonant stroke are written in front of the next stroke, if there is one, to avoid confusing first and third-position vowels. The same mark in different positions represents completely different vowel sounds. It is important to practice the placement of vowel sounds until it becomes second nature, and then train yourself to recognize when they can be safely omitted.
It was discovered early on that completely omitting the vowels could create ambiguous shorthand outlines, so a few rules were made for vowel indication without actually using any vowel marks.
If the first consonant of a word includes a second-position vowel, write this stroke on the line.

These go on the line itself. With this rule, there is some indication of the first vowel of a word from the total possibilities , and this works surprisingly well to distinguish very similar words.
Again, with a pencil, light marks should be the lightest possible dots and dashes, with heavy marks heavy enough to distinguish from light marks. The I and oi marks count as first-position vowel marks, the ow and you marks are third-position.The I and oi marks count as first-position vowel marks, the ow and you marks are third-position.
