Question and Answer
The majority of students and working court reporters work in the legal profession. CRAH has showed us 2 symbols to denote a question is being asked and an answer is being given.
(STKPWHR) or the begininng side of keys
(FRPBLGTS) or the ending side of keys except, the D and Z keys
I stopped with practicing the words.
New sample words
Care, Frame, Hike, Strike, File, Germ, Yell.
I am going to pick up tomorrow on the words portion and see how it goes. The audio seems to be going faster this lesson. But I guess at some point everything will speed up.
I got 100% on the words portion of the audio drill.
On to sentences.... The sentences portion is a question/ answer type of audio. I listened to a little and tried to keep up. Needless to say, I need more practice.
I only got about 30 minutes in yesterday due to a dentist appointment and packing my trailer for the weekend. I practiced for 2 hours today, and I can now finish the sentences with only a couple mistakes. I am hoping to work a little more tomorrow. I am also bringing my machine this weekend camping. I won't do a lot of practicing but at least get some machine time in. Have a good Memorial Day!
Update (again) 5/27/14
I finished lesson 4 today. It took some time to get in the swing of things after not practicing much while on vacation. But I passed the audio drill. Wahoo:)
