#Tip of the day from Journalism.co.uk – Podcasts to practise shorthand

August 1st, 2011Posted by in Top tips for journalists, Training

If you are trying to nail that all important 100 words per minute at Teeline or if your shorthand is a bit rusty and you are in need of a refresher, there is a handy iTunes podcast feed called Machine Speed Shorthand to help.

You can search for “Teeline” in iTunes and download podcasts with scripts read at various speeds so that you can practice using your iPhone, iPod, iPad or other mp3 player while on the train when you find yourself with a spare few minutes.

There are also three shorthand dictations available – at 40, 50 and 60 words per minute – in iTunes U

The podcasts appear to have stopped being produced and the quality of the recordings is not great but they still provide a handy free resource for those learning Teeline.
