Tami, the Grand does not have the vowel keys in line with the other keys, but in my case that is a good thing. The main reason why I went from a LightSpeed to the Gemini Grand is because the flat keys on the LightSpeed aggravated my thumbs. Several years ago I had a lot of trouble with my thumbs due to editing with a power mouse which was placed on a board in the middle of my lap. It was completely programmable, and I made tons of editing macros, but in the end it messed my thumbs up. I'm glad you are tweaking your writers to best suit you. Just take your breaks!

Hi, Trina!

Yeah, I thought it was overdue.

You do have to work on that -DZ for -ing next, Jenny. It's just so easy.

My machine (Mira) is at the Steno Doctor right now. I had taken in an old Flash that I have down on Monday for them to check out, and I had to add wide keys to it. Clay is wanting to use it.

So I had them build up the vowel keys, which I learned form Mark's first bootcamp that we attended. I had built them up on my Mira using keypads, three high, but the Steno Doctor does it with a hard-key extension with one pad on top.

I've been doing my free week on the Flash -- the attendees at the seminar last weekend are receiving the Magnum Steno Club free this week -- and I'm loving the new extension. The ones on the Mira do a little bit of a slip and slide from time to time.

I know Virginia K. had talked about the "extension" vowel keys on somebody's thread before, but I had pictured it in my mind differently.

So I called the Steno Doc yesterday and told him to put the permanent extensions on my Mira now, too. It brings them up to almost level with all the keys, which is pretty much where they've been, but now I'll have no more slip and slide.

Does the Grand have the vowel keys up in line with the other keys??

Oh, and hi, Judy!

How timely, Tami! I just finished entering all of my did and didn't phrases into my main dix five minutes ago. That's -RPLS for did and -*RPLS for didn't. Good thing I have some new wide asterisk keys - now to get the hang of them after 30+ years without them.
