I know that several of the old timers use shorthand all the time to take quick notes (Adam Frost comes to mind). I believe the book can be special-ordered from Valerie as shorthand is not accessible by computer as it is meant to be written, not typed. 

Handwriting is not quick, but it is clear and readable and I can read notes I wrote more than 20 years ago at this point. I teach handwriting when I teach signwriting myself.

Clear writing moves business forward.

Hi Charles,

yes I know this page, but there is only handwriting explained but not shorthand, only differences, but not the way I get certain SW symbols by shorthand. 
Anyway is more used handwriting or shorthand?

Thank you,
Honza
