Shorthand Course in Rawalpindi Islamabad Pakistan 0344-5596000


Shorthand is a kind of writing where words, phrases, or sounds are represented by symbols or abbreviations. Its purpose is to enable the rapid and efficient transcription of spoken language. Shorthand is often used in situations where quick note-taking or transcription is required, such as in courtrooms, business meetings, and lectures.

Shorthand systems vary in their complexity and the symbols used. Some common shorthand systems include:

  1. Pitman Shorthand: Developed by Sir Isaac Pitman in the 19th century, Pitman Shorthand uses a combination of straight lines, curves, and dots to represent sounds and words. It is based on phonetics and can be written at high speeds.
  2. Gregg Shorthand: Developed by John Robert Gregg, Gregg shorthand is a simplified and efficient system that uses a combination of curves, lines, and hooks to represent sounds. It is widely used in the United States.
  3. Teeline Shorthand: Created in the 1960s, Teeline Shorthand is a modern system that simplifies the process of shorthand writing. It uses a combination of basic geometric shapes and lines to represent sounds.
  4. Handywrite: Handywrite is a hybrid system that combines elements of shorthand and longhand writing. It uses a combination of symbols and modified letters to represent sounds.
  5. Speedwriting: Speedwriting is a shorthand system that uses abbreviations and phonetic representations of words. It is designed for rapid writing and is often used in note-taking and dictation.

Shorthand can be learned through dedicated courses or self-study. It requires practice and familiarity with the shorthand system being used. Although shorthand has become less common in modern times due to the availability of digital recording devices and advanced transcription tools, it can still be a valuable skill for individuals who need to transcribe information quickly and accurately.
