That's how I started here as well. I first learned about Gregg
shorthand & other, alternative quick-writing systems as a child back
in the very early 60s. I've read about them ever since, and invented
one I used all throughout college, law school, and the early 80s at
work (LONG before portable computers). My ultimate desire would be
for a handheld that read my script (or any other like Quickscript),
and translated immediately into text - something like the old Apple
Newton, but much faster to write...
