    A Shorthand Admirer

    I learned Pitman's shorthand in 1960 and completed the whole course only in six months and passed a test at 120 words per minute.  I have ever since kept in touch with it by using it during my studies in England and then in taking Minutes of meetings during employment.  Even...

    Work Experience As A Stenographer

    A stenographer is far different from a typist. The typist work is to type the existing document or manuscript as the case may be. A stenographer has to maintain speed in his writing. He has to possess excellent memory power to recollect the strokes into English language at the...
