Existing shorthand systems provide non-alphabetical symbols or outlines for words and common phrases allowing you to write them in a short form and increase your writing speed.
But a great deal of time must be spent on memorizing shorthand symbols which but be used daily in order to remember them.
Speedwriting methods use alphabet letters and are easier to learn but require two or three strokes to write a standard letter and cannot match a writing speed attainable by non-alphabetical shorthand.
Most existing speedwriting and shorthand methods are based on assigning a unique outline or code to an individual word and memorizing a large number of abbreviations. Learning theses methods is a very lengthy process.
It is unlikely that you will use regularly all the codes or outlines memorized. Those that are not used daily are forgotten and cannot be remembered when needed, so proficiency declines. In addition, you might to have to create your own codes or outlines for specific words related to your vocabulary.
Computer programs could potentially reduce the difficulties of transcribing large volumes of shorthand symbols. But memorization of a unique code for every word is a ‘catch 22’ problem. In order for the computer software to produce a full word the user must know the corresponding abbreviation.
