    Pitman's Shorthand Reading Material

    I am delighted that many people are still interested in shorthand both for work and hobby. I learned in the 1970's but since starting my shorthand websites, I have discovered that there are very many people learning, and wanting to learn, but nowadays they have to study on their...

    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...

    A Very Useful Skill

    I taught myself Pitman’s shorthand, years ago, and have used it ever since for taking notes at meetings and on the phone and, occasionally, for making a private note, since so few people seem to be able to read it, these days. It is possible to take a shorthand note and...
