A Computerized System for the Development, Analysis, and Comparison of Diamond Jubilee and Century 21 Shorthand Dictation Materials.
Kavan, C. Bruce; Gallion, Leona M.
The document describes System 2, a computerized system for analyzing controlled vocabulary material and for comparing the Diamond Jubilee and Century 21 shorthand systems. Background information on three other computer systems for shorthand dictation are briefly described: (1) Reese and Smith Program (University of Tennessee), (2) Kavan and Gallion System (Indiana State University), and (3) Century 21 Computer Analysis (Southwestern Publishing Company). System 2 provides a flexible computerized shorthand system which would contain an unlimited vocabulary base. Four jobstreams were developed for this purpose, each containing a specific function: (1) word base dictionary, (2) update jobstream, (3) dictionary printout jobstream, and (4) shorthand analysis jobstream. The System 2 flowchart is presented and the jobstreams are reproduced from computer printouts. (Author/EC)
