I have officially ended my third week in voice. We are now learning how to insert our punctuation into or material. I had no idea that we had to say punctuation as well while dictation.....you may be asking yourself how that is possible. Well for those of you who have had the pleasure of getting a taste of both worlds like myself (Steno and Voice) you have come to know that there are such things as "briefs". When you are doing voice and punctuation has come into play its a lot different than steno. We can't just say the word "period" or "coma" when dealing with voice because the actual word "period or "coma" will translate instead of the actual puntuation. So we have something called a "voice code". Instead of the word "period" we have a brief called "peerk" that we use for the punctuation period. For a "coma" we would say "Ca" and for a "colon" we would say "colo" and so fourth. We just learned the basics of puntuation this week.....also we started out reading at 100 wpm and in three weeks we have moved up to a WHOPPING 105 WPM(LOL)...look out world here we come!!!!!!
