Under this program an engineering model of the Russian stenotype equipment is being developed to demonstrate the feasibility of such a high-speed, manual, encoding system. This report is given in three parts, each related to a main section of the program the stenocode and keyboard design study, the digital hardware and the steno teaching machine. The stenocode description includes three parts 1 keyboard design 2 the Numbered Encoding Code NEC 3 the Spelling-Out Code SOC encoding system. Some details of the NEC system remain to be worked out and will be covered in the final report. Digital hardware is devoted to the serializer-decoder.
