RR114: Theory of Machine Shorthand I - 4 Hours
Phoenix Theory is a computer-compatible, conflict-free, machine shorthand theory. Many conflicts and ambiguities that were acceptable prior to the use of computers to translate Stenograph outlines are identified and resolved. Emphasis is placed on the ability to write conflict-free machine shorthand with accuracy and to read notes fluently. Students learn the Phoenix Theory system of writing the spoken language of English in machine shorthand. Students learn how to write all sounds for words in the English language, abbreviations, phrases, numbers, and all other elements necessary to write the spoken or written word. Skill is progressively built through a series of lectures and exercises designed to facilitate mental recall and physical skill.
