Shorthand means writing the syllables of english in the form of secret codes. Writing those words at 80 words per minute is lower grade in short hand, 120 words per minute is higher.

So the art of writing those words as secret code, bist might be the fastest to write no. Of words per minute.

Stenography stands for hiding the data so that the other person is not able to decode it.

An example of stenography: if a text is to be transferred to someone. Then an image and the text file is merged by writing some code. If a lay man person views the data then he will be able to see only the image. But if its opened using image viewer then the hidden text will be visible.

Who is Mr. Bist???

Vipan said: (May 11, 2012)  
Give me example of that writing.

Harish Chandra Bisht said: (May 19, 2012)  
^ = HOW
/ = MUCH,WHICH, EACH
| = DAY, DO, DEPARTMENT
. = A, AN, THE,
' = ON
__ = CAN, COME
__ (BOLD) = GO, GOVERNMENT, GIVE, GIVEN


Shorthand writing is pretty much based on HOW the words are pronounced, and not how they're spelt. ie- it's a phonetic writing.

Once the script is learnt, we can write in any number of languages (english, Hindi, French, German etc.), provided we already know that language.

What is his speed?

Alindra Barman said: (Jul 12, 2013)  
Shorthand or Stenography is a sound writing (phonetic) system. It is a course which requires one year to finish. But without hard work, it is very difficult to obtain good speed. In Pitman's Shorthand (Sir Isaac Pitman) , the geometrical lines (strokes) are straight and half circles in different positions. There are twelve vowel sounds, some hooks, halfing, doubling etc. One can increase speed of writing with the help of logograms/gramalogues (abbreviation) and language knowledge. One can also obtain speed more than 120 with experience and subject knowledge. Accuracy is a must in stenography.

Lined paper is necessary to write Isaac Pitman's shorthand. The same shorthand outline written above, on, or below the line has three different meanings based on vowel sound; e.g "Pat" written above, "Pet" written on the line, and "Pit" below.
