    Abstract

    Automatic transcription of Palantype shorthand has been used for some time as a verbatim transcription aid for the deaf. Recent advances have combined the requirements of this system with those of court reporting to the mutual benefit of both applications. The current palantype transcription systems require floppy discs to store the dictionary data and are not in a portable form. They are being marketed initially to the reporting firms with the primary aim of providing a more efficient system for producing transcripts. Longer term plans include their use in the electronic office. Miniaturization will enable products to be produced which are portable and thus more widely useful in the deaf community.
