Open a document without auto correct, spell check, etc. Or use a typewriter or hand write.
Choose a chapter in the textbook.
Type up the shorthand exercises from the book.
-------------------- The reason for the program without spell check, is to see if you type it correctly. Using the correct word. Did you use "our" for "are"? Auto correct may change that, but you should know the difference just in case auto correct doesn't.
"Gregg Shorthand had achieved the most extraordinary success ever attained by any system in the history of shorthand." John Robert Gregg, 1922
