Um, not sure which one she learned, she said Anniversary, but in the first letter 'Name' was written in full, instead of just 'n-a'. And isn't 'acknowledgement' just 'a-c'? And wrote out 'submit' isn't that just a lifted 's' and then 'm-i-t'? She also wrote out "return" in stead of just 'r-e-t'.
BUT this is a good video to watch for those who are at 70wpm and obviously I'm not sure on some outlines... but just wanted to let those know who are learning Anniversary that you need to reference the books or dictionaries until you learn it fully. Then you can see how others write it and adapt it for yourself. For example, if 'n-a' refers to something else in your writing, then you will probably want to write out 'name' so you can transcribe/read it.
It could be that she didn't remember all her brief forms. As far as "name" goes, I wondered why they made that a brief form anyway. Just one simple stroke after the 'n-a' and you have the 'm'. Most of the brief forms are much better than that particular one in my opinion.
I am working hard at memorizing all the brief forms, even using flash cards to help me. They really do save time if you can remember to use them.
Debbi, how are you doing now? I notice that you started this board over a year ago. Are you fast and accurate now? Has learning shorthand helped you get a job or to do better at the one you are at? Are you still working on getting faster? I'm just curious. I hope you are doing well. Thanks again for starting this board.

I'm getting better. I haven't used it all that much in person or professional life. But I still love it and read it every now and then. I do write it sometimes. I just have very many interests outside of work that I don't do this exclusively. And since I have a hard time motivating myself (unless it short or easy or...) then I can lose interest and move on to something else. But I still have a love for it, that's why I update this board and keep trying to find new and interesting things about shorthand.

Hi readers, and Gregg Shorthand adepts
I took shorthand in high school (last century) and have not forgotten it all. On the contrary, I've incorporated, e.g., "ish" chay" jay" and (my concept) of the Gregg methodology into the VerbatimIT system of Verbatim Instant Transcripts.
I will guess that everyone has seen or heard of touchscreen gadgets on which you can write, e.g., iPhone or Androids, and the like.
So, I know an app for the Android for writing Chinese, which is a language one draws on the touchscreen. Written Chinese is graphical, as is Gregg Shorthand.
Who has it in them to ask around your circle of friends, or network, or friends to ask how to write a program to implement and program a gadget to allow you to write in Gregg and have the gadget display the English.
