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.
I'm a retired technical writer. I had wanted to learn shorthand for journal writing but quickly fell in love with it just as I once fell in love with Greek and Latin.
I’ve never been able to understand when to write left “S” and when to use right “S”. Is there a rule? My words come out looking awkward compared to those in the book. I’m learning using Gregg Shorthand Simplified Second Edition. Thank you!
