Is shorthand still alive or dead?Dear All,
Once upon a time, when I was a school going boy, learning the typing and shorthand were important to get any clerical job. After my SSLC, I was encouraged to become a stenographer, and I had gone to a typewriting institute and learned typing and shorthand for three months. But I did not complete it and pass any examination as I got a good job. I learned typing and shorthand to some extent.
Now, I doubt whether shorthand is still alive or dead. With the technological advancement, I think shorthand is not being taught in institutions and learned by the job seekers.
What is the state of shorthand now? Are the stenographers in demand?
