    My journalism course says I need to learn shorthand:confused:. I thought this was kind of dead:oops:. Are there apps or things that make it work with tablets, cos it looks like a totally new alphabeto_O? Does it help with writing?

    I don't have any personal experience with official shorthand systems but I don't think they're really made to be written in a digital format. There might be some kind of note-taking/drawing app you could use if you have a stylus pen, but I don't think there are any kinds of translation or keyboard apps out there...not that I know of anyway.

    Are you supposed to learn Teeline?

    There are quite a few different types out there but I think Teeline is the most popular. Pitman is the only other one I can think of off the top of my head. Hopefully it's a skill worth learning!
