The Probaway shorthand is much easier to learn than any other shorthand system, and just as fast to write as the fastest. You can be well started by simply replacing your longhand script for “the” and “and” with their Probaway Script forms. Because those words are made up of their letter forms, with that simple habit you will have learned four common letters. Also, without learning anything more, you will have replaced a substantial portion of typical words in a typical paragraph. Each letter of the alphabet has a single stroke, and the sizes, shapes and directions of the strokes are carefully chosen to maintain uniqueness to maximize clarity when reading the handwritten script. At the Probaway Script site there is a lot more scripted material to help your eye learn to see the basic shapes. However, everything you need to learn this system is in the top half of the page above, and all of the rest is simply to help you get up to speed. Ultimately, that speed could be four times faster than your longhand writing speed.
[ It would be great if a programmer could write a program for automatically taking standard text and forming it into Probaway Script text. There are so few rules to follow that it should be a short program of joining one completed letter’s tail to the nose of the following letter. A nice on/off toggle option would be to tag in the vowels. ]
