Yeah, I still do.  I'm not experienced enough with the stacking settings to make all that many changes.  I did turn down the time that the software waits for the next stroke from 1,000 to 600.  Maybe I should move that down even farther.

I had stacking issues using the LS software interface when I tried it way back when, but those went away for the most part using Bluetooth.  Now I only see stacking when things are very fast and my writing is getting out of control.  Stacks that wouldn't be anything else I global.  I don't remember having three strokes stack together, though.  If that's happening a lot, you should probably call Stenovations to see what they say about that. 

If you are using the software interface, you can experiment with the different stacking settings to see if any of those help.  I have zero experience using those settings since BT works so well for me, but I know other people are getting good results with them.  You shouldn't be seeing any stacking when you're writing at a controlled pace, though.

Thank you so much for your encouraging words, Laura.  You have no idea how much I need to hear that from a pro LS user.  

I more have stacking issues, as many as three strokes.  Any suggestion for that?

Just keep plugging away with it.  It should be a little better each time.  Keep an eye on the drag/drop keys too, and keep adjusting bit by bit when you see any patterns there.

It's SO worth it using the LS, so much less wear and tear on the body.  Hang in there!

Thanks, Laura.  I know you're right.  I'm just more scared of attorneys criticizing my writing.  Worse yet, not being able to read back.  I've only taken it out twice so far, that's it.

I would encourage you to use the Lightspeed tomorrow.  Your RT may not be as nice as you're used to, but switching back and forth between writers won't help you.  Just bring the other writer along and leave it set up in the corner so you know it's there just in case you want to switch at a break.  If you do use it, you'll probably be surprised how uncomfortable it'll seem having to press down movable keys now and how it feels like your fingers will be slipping into the cracks.

Good luck tomorrow whichever writer you decide to go with.

Well, I have a realtime job tomorrow.  I really want to take my Lightspeed and use it, but I'm afraid.  When I have to type fast, it's a disaster.

Thanks, Janet.  Yeah, I do wear a wrist support as well.  It does really help.  I'm hoping all of these solutions will make a huge difference.

I love the idea about putting the quarters on my hands and type with the LS.  I took it out on a job yesterday for the second time.  I even had to read back three times and I did it.  I was like, Wooohoo!!

Every time I take it out, I get more confident.  It will be a while before I do RT with it, but still.....

Kelli, I just read what Laura wrote to you, and I wondered if you have tried wearing a support on your arm and/or wrist when you work.  I have tendinitis, and it has helped to wear support when it's really aggravated.

Comment by Kelli Combs (admin) on January 4, 2014 at 8:09

Oh, interesting.  Okay.  I'll try that.  Thanks for the words of support.  I love hearing how other people stick with it and make it work.
