Idea for Shorthand practice

It’s coming up to my first weekend manning the Bracknell and Wokingham news desk. I’m excited and nervous but it’s all about being thrown in at the deep end.

There’s loads of good stories in this week’s Bracknell Forest Standard out today and here’s one story that’s online written by moi.


I also came up with an idea for anyone practicing Shorthand.  Every day the Reading Post pops a 60 second news update on the site http://www.getreading.co.uk/ and I think these would be good for anyone wanting to get 100+wpm as you always run out of dictations.

For lower speeds, a friend of mine recommended I watch Newsround as they talk a bit slower for the kiddles.  It’s pretty handy.
