Hi again. lol. I am usually the one who loves to give the encouragement, but I am feeling a little down lately. 01/01/10 is not going well, and I only left my house for about 2 hours... But that story is for a different day when I don't feel so stupid. lol

I have been working for three years this January and am still not doing realtime. I graduated from Alfred State online, and had a 3.8 GPA. But then I found Mark K., and realized that my theory, well, kind of sucked in certain… Continue

Rough ascii requirements

Happy Saturday! I was just wondering if you could all tell me what you change for a rough ascii before it goes out. Do you just translate steno untranslates and nothing else? Or do you change the speaker names to the right people, read through it entirely and fix stuff you see quickly??

I really haven't done a rough ascii before, and I want to make sure I am sending them what they're expecting.

Reading back format

Hello all. Haven't written in a while because things are SUPER busy. Been out of town a lot, too. And just recently got our second "child," another one of the most adorable/gorgeous/huge great danes you'll ever see:) His name is Kaden. I will post some pictures on my page.

Anyways, way off topic there. I am just wondering how you show in the transcript when you read back. At my first company, I was taught to do it this way:

THE REPORTER: "Q: Where do you… Continue

Administrative Hearing Advice

Hello all:) Just got booked for a 3-day Administrative Hearing here in Upstate, NY. Because I am freelance, I really only do depositions. Can anyone tell me what I can expect going into this? Is it like an actual trial where there is a courtroom and a judge is sitting up at a bench, or is it like an arbitration? Only asking because I see there is an ALJ, and the description I found on line, to me, sounds like a form of an arbitration.

Thanks for any suggestions. I just really like… Continue

Just wondering opinions on which is "better." lol. I have Eclipse now, but have to be honest in saying I don't really know how to use a lot of the functions I don't think. I just kind of do my realtime for myself and then basic edit with an ascii after finishing it. What are the pros and cons of each?

Hi Erica,

A thousand apologies for the serious delay in my reply (I never scroll down my page to see comments!)

If you're thinking of coming to Ireland for a break, can you bring your steno machine with you??? We're seriously understaffed at the moment :)

I didn't end up getting the LS, I just can't get used to the feel of it, so I've still got my Mira at the moment, but I saw the Diamente and the Passport at the convention so might change over soon.

Again, sorry for the delay, and hope to see you here soon :)

Hi Erica,
I'm having trouble with pain in my wrists and thumbs. It started after two 300 -page days using my LS. I don't want to post that in the general forum, because there are plenty of users not having any issues. I do love the touch on the LS, but I'm in pain.

Hey, Erica! I knew that was "you"!!! I'm about to do my two-mile exercise tape. When I have some time tomorrow, I'm coming back to your page to look at all your fantastic pics!!!

Hi, Erica,You were commenting on my post about stacking and my old Stentura, and then things got to talking about Mira. Just to refresh your memory. You had a comment for me I couldn't find.

Did you get my e-mails? One was returned, but I didn't know if you got the other two.

Hi, Eria, I looked and looked but I can't find your comment on the users forum about stacking. Love your pics, though. My parents had an antique car at their wedding, too, it is so cool!

Hey, they are actualy Weimaraners, both boys. And my crazy husband has been trying to convince me the past few weeks on getting a female Weim. Our neighbor just had a litter of puppies. But I don't know about three dogs and a 20-month old. And your pics, too, are beautiful!! It looks like you're recently married, so congratulations!!

Ahhhh, you could 'stack' and add an -F for have words,,but that still would not be consistent...nothing in Magnum Steno either. Maybe post to the group and see if anyone does it??
