I’m interested in the spanish version of the doezis shorthand.
I assume that there are very few changes in respect to the english version.
I searched e-bay and abe-books without succes.
Thanks in advance

I looked at the database at the Library of Congress, and the only books by a man named Doezis are books in Spanish.

I don’t think there ever was an English version, or, if there was, it was exceedingly obscure; I’ve studied shorthand history in the US, and I’ve never heard of it.

I did a little research on Doezis. He was a stenographer of great renown in Chile in the 50s and 60s, who invented his own shorthand.

As far as I’m able to discern, there’s never been an English version.

  1. There is a topic "Doezis Shorthand" in Anything Goes about 25 topics before this one — sorry, I don't know how to link directly to it. Although it's a Spanish system, Doezis did apparently produce a short adaptation to English.  Scans of this are actually on this site under Pictures, Simplified.  I don't think a full-blown English version was produced.   Cheers, Ian

  2. Hi everybody,

    I posted about Doezis time ago, because I have the book in Spanish, in fact, he wrote the system in Spanish and he did a little adaptation to English, that I scanned it fully, and posted it in images section.

    Doezis comes from "Michael Doezis", Rolando S찼nchez's nickname. He invented around 1941 another shorthand system called ROLSAN, that is more Gregglike. Doezis system differs from Rolsan, basically because Doezis uses "Mayor Linguistic Abbreviation", and obviously different strokes.

    Spanish version is contained in 216 pages… too much for being scanned ;-).
