The Stenotype technique is the only presently known method for recording spoken language in hard copy at conversational speeds. This suggests the possibility of machine transcription of Stenotype code into English clear text at conversational speeds. Machine transcription could thus increase the productivity of typists, and thereby, provide a man-machine interface that is competitive with other forms of keyboard input.
