Dear Ms. Roe,
I brought this issue to the attention of the Crowdsourcing team, who have recently received quite a few questions regarding the shorthand. Currently, they do no have a comprehensive guide, but are looking to add one to our resources on the website when they find an appropriate one. They are hopeful this will be soon.
I learned shorthand in high school and thought it would be fabulous for note-taking in college. I used shorthand during my freshman and sophomore year and didn't follow the rule to transfer them to longhand or type them before forgetting the conversation. When it came time to take my comprehensive exams in order to graduate, I could not read any of those shorthand notes. Thank goodness my classmates shared theirs with me! It takes years to master this skill which is also unique to every scribe. To further complicate this, there are two forms of shorthand, Gregg and Pitman. It will be very difficult for most transcribers to decipher shorthand even with a comprehensive guide.
