A structure for real-time Stenotype transcription

by J. W. Newitt, A. Odarchenko
Computer transcription of Stenotype code offers the possibility of producing English text from speech via the Stenotype keyboard in real time. Reported are experiments directed toward designing a time-shared Stenotype transcription system that makes use of earlier work in Stenotype dictionaries and language processing. A content-addressing algorithm for direct-access storage, requiring a single access per retrieval, is presented. An existing experimental Stenotype dictionary program is used to implement on System/360 this algorithm and a dictionary-compaction technique. Transcription analysis indicates that the experimental design can reduce the average transcription error rate to six percent.
