Existing shorthand systems provide non-alphabetical symbols or outlines for words and common phrases to write them in a short form and increase the writing speed. A number of writing strokes is significantly reduced and a high speed can be attained.
However, a great deal of time must be spent on memorization using such systems and retention is difficult unless you practice writing the outlines on a daily basis.
On the other hand, speedwriting methods use alphabet letters and are easier to learn. But they require two or three strokes to write a standard letter and can not match a writing speed attainable by non-alphabetical shorthand.
Usually, all existing speedwriting and shorthand methods are based on assigning a unique outline or code to an individual word and memorizing a large number of abbreviations is a very lengthy process.
It is unlikely that you will use regularly all the codes or outlines memorized. Those that are not used daily are forgotten and cannot be remembered when needed, so proficiency declines. In addition, you might to have to create your own codes or outlines for specific words related to your vocabulary.
Computer programs could potentially reduce the difficulties transcribing large volumes of symbols. But memorization of a unique code for every word is a ‘catch 22’ problem. In order for the computer software produce a full word the user must know the corresponding abbreviation.
