Thanks, Ginger. I just bought a used LightSpeed Classic off of eBay as a backup and will see how that works for me.
Lisa Gretarsson, I just friended you to see if you're really interested in selling your LightSpeed. Please send me a message privately. Thanks!
Thanks for the response, Jenny. It is good to know that the settings are working well at those depths. I tried writing on the Diamante's lowest setting at Vegas in July, which is around 3/8, I would say, but was unable to do so. It was just too deep for me. I was just now trying to write the brief "what has been" "WHAFPBLTD" on the Passport at a 3 to 4 mm keyboard depth. Of course you know the LightSpeed is at 1 to 3 mm depths these days. Some of the Kislingbury outlines are difficult for me so that is why I have lowered my keyboard depth so much, the outlines are easier for me at lower depths. I agree with your indicating to write where you can hit the greatest accuracy, since I'm trying to incorporate all of Kislingbury's complicated one-stroke outlines. I would love to try the Infinity for a while. I also know everyone is doing what works for them and what I'm doing is a little obscure with the rest of the pack. As I progress in my outline retention and apply the future technologies that become available, it becomes more and more exciting to be writing. This makes reporting really fun.
I'll try to do that this afternoon, Jenny.
I also feel compelled to add the fact that we are all realtime reporters. We want/demand the greatest accuracy and ease from our writers because what we write goes out to others.
Ginger, I wish you would find a little measuring device and let us know. Make Jeff happy!
I haven't measured mine, Jeff, but I have a very shallow stroke, and I don't have any problems.
Jeff, here's a paste of what I wrote in the closed Infinity Users group on Facebook a while ago, talking about depth and my Infinity Ergo - and remember I had the LS for at least a year:
I am getting perfect results at fast testimony with the depth my pics show and these settings. I experimented with a shallower depth, but what happened is while I was able to achieve perfection on a CRR or even a 225 Q & A, during an actual depo, the shallower settings were just too sensitive, registering my hesitations where I was making contact with the keys without knowing I was. At this longer depth I don't have to be so careful - which was wearing me out! The moral: Throw out your idea that you need the most shallow stroke ever. You need the stroke that gives you the greatest accuracy with the most ease. My fingers are still totally happy. The force required to press down is still super light!
Jeff, I know you can't see my pics on FB, but I'll tell you that right now, the depth of my -F key is at a tad less than 1/4 of an inch, and that's when pressing it down all the way, which I don't when writing. The activation point is higher than that. The amount of effort it takes to press is so minimal. I wish you could try one out for a while!
Has anybody adjusted the Infinity keyboard to low depths and is able to adjust out any shadows or drags/stacks or splits? I haven't been able to find out. By low depths I mean down to 4 or 5 mm key movement from the top row of keys.
Believe me, I was on the verge of copying Christy's idea. I just love, love, love the leopard. But since I typically work with really, really conservative engineer/patent attorneys, I thought that just may put them over the edge LOL. I know one in particular that is already going to give me grief about my bling :-)
I get comments at EVERY deposition.
