A topic intimately familiar to anyone with experience in machine shorthand: Briefing and phrasing. With all the controversy and opinions out there, where does one start?? Well, I have read more posts than I can count and have received HEAPS of emails/fb messages asking me for my take re this very issue. So in this edition of the stanographer vlog, I talk about my general observations regarding this topic as well as offer a few pointers from the viewpoint of somebody who writes very short.

Please note that anything I phrase as imperative in this video is meant to be suggestion only. Only you can decide what techniques and writing styles suit your particular psychological/biological "equipment." If something I say does not jibe with your fingers/brain, to hell with it! Do you.

Thanks to:
