Teeline shorthand theory and speed principles for note-taking and verbatim dictation.
Shorthand is an efficient transcribing method that transfers audible content
to written symbols. Shorthand skills have long been important in professional occupations.
They are crucial in the legal and medical fields,
where speed and accuracy are paramount. At Pitman Training, you can expect to learn
shorthand typing from the very best. In fact, Pitman Training's founder, Sir Isaac Pitman, developed today’s most
practised shorthand style nearly two centuries ago.
Shorthand is a fundamental skill for all journalists and an accurate shorthand note is
vital. Shorthand is an elective module in the NCTJ Diploma in Journalism.
The recommended study book is Teeline Gold Standard for Journalists by Marie Cartwright.
This book is designed to take a beginner up to 100wpm, and includes
essential speed building and exam practice. The book is included in our
distance learning module, or you can purchase individually via our online shop,
alongside a range of other shorthand learning materials.
Shorthand is an abbreviated symbolic writing method that increases
speed and brevity of writing as compared to longhand, a more common
method of writing a language. The process of writing in shorthand is called stenography.
Many forms of shorthand exist. A typical shorthand system provides symbols or
abbreviations for words and common phrases, which can allow someone well-trained
in the system to write as quickly as people speak. Abbreviation methods are
alphabet-based and use different abbreviating approaches. Several autocomplete programs,
standalone or integrated in text editors, based on word lists, also include a
shorthand function for frequently used phrases. Many journalists use shorthand
writing to quickly take notes at press conferences or
other similar scenarios.
Produce an accurate text from shorthand notes.
