An Interesting Thing About Court Reporters and Their Little Typing Machines

"Because there are fewer keys on the keyboard than there are letters, we use a combination of letters at the same time to form other letters. An example would be the letter N. To make the letter N on the left-hand side of the keyboard, we must press the letters T, P and H at the same time. To write the word 'not' we must press 'TPHOT' all at the same time. That spells 'not' in steno." [City Room/NYT]
