Welcome to CSR Nation
hi there heather. i am a student who is about to buy a grand. not sure what they call the new one, I think IT. Am I dreaming or fantasizing if i think it might help me a small bit with my speed? I seem to be twisting my fingers around constantly on the stentura i own, and i noticed that i hesitate to write out difficult words because i know how much twisting i will have to do in order to get the word written out. thanks, tanya klein
I have the leather keypads on my Revolution Grand. I just move it over 'closer' to the other key, as in the * key and the DZ keys. How long have you been a student? I'm not sure you want them too close, as they may even stick to each other as you are moving along at faster speeds. I'm awaiting my new machine but I've used this brand since Gemini2 and can never go back. NO neck/wrist issues! User since 2003!
cool. I am going to try the pads. they sound good. How are you enjoying reporting? ordering my machine today!!!! woohoo. what about the fact that it is paperless, do you ever have a problem? also, how important do you think it is to practice steno readback every day?
I'm worried because I am pretty much just focusing on speed building and have non of the academics. do you think that's enough? thanks. t.
I will reply more later, but please read this thread. I have some more advice, but I wanted to quickly respond to the question regarding reading notes. There are ways to print out computer notes if you don't have the paper tape.
Hope that comes through!
