Although there are disciplines that have an exclusive character of application in specific areas of professional or working life, they are still important for a large number of people. This is the case of the collection of shorthand books in PDF format that we present in this section and that we leave at your disposal for download.

Shorthand is still relevant in certain fields, such as judicial, legislative, political or communication. Its application is very useful for the transcription of speeches. This selection of shorthand books aims to respond to this demand.

We can define shorthand as the discipline that uses abbreviations and short codes, characters and signs, with the aim of writing at the same speed as the speaker. In other words, the shorthand system is used to transcribe speeches in real time.

At the time of transcription, the stenographer does not do it to obtain the complete speech, but later makes a reconstruction of it itself, making it accessible to the general public. It is impossible to know the stenographic speech if you do not know the system, or have not heard the speech live.

The areas of application of shorthand can be oral trials, where what is said by witnesses, lawyers, judges, victims and defendants is transcribed in real time. It can also be used to record debates held in a Congress or Senate. It can also be used to subtitle live television speeches. In this case, computer systems are used to translate the transcript.

A shorthand system can be learned quickly, but the difficulty lies in its application or execution, as it is more complex. Therefore, not everyone can perform this type of activity.
