And it's so light, it wouldn't stop a door! :D

Can't believe I wrote configurating. I had configurations and added ing and didn't delete a couple of letters. Only a court reporter would worry about that. Anyway, I'll call Stenovations Monday and get that going. It's kind of an expensive door stop as it is!

Like I said, get your firmware updated first. I got my LS in August 2007. Software has changed a lot since then -- for the better. Those configs will work after your updates.

My LS has a different interface for configurating I think. It was really difficult. I was one of the first to buy one after it was shown at a convention, I think it was Texas.

You'll quickly learn which keys to tweak and how. On Greta's blog, there are some configurations that have been helpful to others that you can download to give you a start. Personally, I had more success in doing it from scratch and seeing how I write. It's helped others get past the frustration you experienced though.

When you get to that point, here's the site:

I'll do that. I really tried to work with it at the beginning and got frustrated so there it sits for over a year. I'd like to get it working just for the lightness of it, but don't want to spend a lot of time scoping horrible translations, which is the reason I didn't use it.

Call Stenovations and get the latest firmware installed. They like to do it with you on the phone so there are no foul-ups. Then you'll download the December 2008 build from the website.

Unless you're one of the lucky few, your first job or three will be less pretty than what you're turning out right now. It's worth the trouble, though. It turns around fast. However, don't think that just practicing at home will get you where you ultimately want to be. Practicing to TV or to speed tapes just isn't the same thing. You need to use it in the field and watch the way your fingers hit the keys in a real-life situation.

You're lucky, though, because there have been so many improvements since they first came out, you'll be missing the huge curve that we who jumped right in went through. I'm not at all sorry for the headaches I did go through, though. I'm down to only my LightSpeeds now. Love writing on it!

I have one of the first Lightspeeds that came out and it is still sitting in my briefcase. Too nervous to use it because I never could get it tweaked and there's too many untrans. Now I think it probably needs all kinds of updates. Any suggestions?

I ordered mine at our state's winter seminar. Possibly the reason?
Hmmm, my keypads don't have a gloss at all. They are rather dull actually. Mine almost look like a dark gray instead of black.

I, too, like the squishy feel to the keypads on the LS but I'd be willing to try the leather. I'm just afraid of the removal process!
Comment by Laura Renke on November 5, 2009 at 11:19
Shelley, I wonder why you got free keypads and I had to pay for mine when we both ordered at the same time. Did you call on the phone? I ordered online. I didn't get a case either.
I'm looking at my LS right now, and I really wouldn't be surprised if these keypads are the same as what you have. Silicone is my take of what the material is rather than rubber. They have a high-gloss finish layer on top and foam underneath, and mine are still mostly glossy except for a few dull-looking spots. They really don't look smooth if you look closely at them, but they don't have ridges or cross-hatching.
I've seen on Depoman that the Depobook leather keypads for the LS are a lot easier to remove than the Stenovations keypads. I like the extra cushioning, but if you like the leather, the Depobook ones are probably the way to go.
