Hi, I'm Mark and I am looking for some paid online freelance jobs transcribing DJS notes. I will work on any length of project. I would like to know how would I go about writing classic novels in DJS. Thank you.
Not sure how about to start a business transcribing shorthand notes. Maybe look at what others are doing, I think there's a few out there. Most find them from someone who needs help transcribing some old documents. Maybe put an alert on Google search or somewhere when someone asks about transcribing them.
To transcribe classic novels, looks for ones out of copyright. Internet Archive ( archive.org/ ) has several. I think they link to Gutenberg( www.gutenberg.org/ ) which has a ton of free ebooks to copy in shorthand. I would suggest starting a blog (message board, or some other easy access internet web site) to see how it works out for you. This might also give others a way to find you who need shorthand transcribed.
To find out if they write DJS, I would suggest you have a link to Shorthand, Shorthand, Shorthand and their "Gregg Shorthand, Which Version?" page here: shorthandshorthandshorthand.com/Which_Gregg_Do_I_Write.htm . This way they can see if they write DJS. You could even provide sample outlines that are unique to DJS or might indicate that it is DJS and not another version.
