Timeless Advice for Steno Students

This is a couple pages from the Gregg Shorthand Manual 1916 (no longer under copyright), slightly modified by me to apply to machine shorthand. It still holds true today!

So most steno students hate reading notes off paper, right? It's so cumbersome, and then the wind from your oscillating fan catches the paper and scatters it everywhere across your living room. At least that's my experience... To get around this and still get the benefit of reading raw steno, either read off your notebar in a realtime file or open up a previously written note file. Great for when your hands or forearms are too tired to continue!
