The Gregg Group was founded 22 May 2004, prompted by the lack of online shorthand resources. As the primary use for shorthand — business and legal recording — has waned in recent decades, we generally acclaim the skill as a hobby or personal tool. The purpose of the group is to promote the use of Gregg systems of shorthand by providing advice to beginners, support for students, and an association of users of this efficient, attractive, and enjoyable method of writing.
Thanks for these! I really appreciate the thoroughness with which you labelled and indexed everything. I'm 2/3s of the way through the Simplified Manual, but I've done hardly any dictation. Right now the 40 WPM dictations are perfect for me, sometimes just right, sometimes challenging (though never in my best penmanship). I have to say, these business letters are much more fun to transcribe from dictation than to copy. Sometimes I've felt like clawing my eyes out copying fake junk mail ads from the 50's.
LOL! I'm glad you like them! Yeah, someone should create some dictation for beginners with more interesting content than business letters. Even Dr. Seuss beginning readers would be more fun!
Thank you so much for sharing this! It's super helpful to practice writing from hearing and then having the manual to go back and check to see where I could have done something better.
So glad you've found them useful!
