Dictation & Transcription
This series consists of 12 recordings. While relatively modest
dictation speeds are used (60-70-80 wpm), this is a challenging program, even
for advanced shorthand students. Progressively longer dictation units are
presented, with increasingly difficult vocabulary.
A student mastering these tapes will be prepared for the dictation and
transcription requirements of a secretary. An excellent program to add further
competence to those who have completed your regular secretarial training course.
Altogether, 90 letters and articles ate included, plus accumulative grading
scales for each lesson and a final grading scale for the course.

Short Letter Dictation
An ideal series of dictations for pure speedbuilding. Short Letter
Dictation consists of carefully graded letters, which gradually become
longer but are all quite short. Each letter is dictated 4 times
in a row, at progressively faster speeds. Part 1 contains 235 letters at
50, 60, 70, and 60 words per minute.
Because the letters are quite short, by the third or fourth repetition,
students almost have the letter memorized, and can write the shorthand almost
before it is spoken. When the final repetition is dictated 10 wpm slower
than the previous one, and the student knows what is coming next, it feels
almost relaxed . . . to be writing 20 wpm faster than the first attempt. What is
important, however, is that the student has shortened the response time between
hearing the longhand and writing the shorthand. With further
practice, this will lead to the ability to write faster. Used in conjunction with
other, longer dictation material -- live or recorded -- Short Letter Dictation
should prepares users for both faster and longer takes.
Part 2 contains 201 letters at 60-70-80-70 wpm; Part 3 contains 180 letters at
70-80-90-80 wpm. Bridges the gap between the first and second semester and first
and second year shorthand.

Vowel Sounds & Silent Letters
This program is designed to help the student differentiate between long
and short vowel sounds and to recognize the use of diphthongs and silent
letters in the English language.
Many people today simply are not aware of what a long vowel is; it is little
wonder that they can't spell; shorthand, which relies on both spelling and
sound, can be an extrordinarily difficult subject. Vowel Sounds is
an ideal preparation for either.

The Complete Book of Spelling Demons
The Complete Book of Spelling Demons is just that: a composite of more than
fifteen studies, analyses, and precis, involving words most commonly misspelled throughout the country. In addition to learning the correct spelling for all
included vocabulary, space is provided to write the correct shorthand for each.
Ten optional recordings provide sixteen lessons and four final tests designed to
help the student master all 1620 Spelling Demons. The recordings, however,
are strictly optional. The book is completely usable without them.
