BakerWrite Speedwriting


BakerWrite speedwriting was conceived by Heather back in 2004, in response to the need for an easy-to-learn and easy-to-transcribe system.

It’s great – based around shorthand techniques – but far more than simply a new twist on an old favourite. BakerWrite uses only letters of the English alphabet. No lines or squiggles to master!

So often people take notes in meetings or lectures and then, guess what? When they come to read them back, they can’t remember what their abbreviations mean – sound familiar?

This is because they have no structure to their note taking; they make up an abbreviation on the spot, and under pressure, and then, next day, have no clue what they meant.

With BakerWrite speedwriting you will develop a structure to your note taking; when you hear a word you’ll know what your abbreviation is, you will write that down and then – hey presto! – be able to transcribe it easily next day.

This system is extremely flexible. There are guidelines and really only one rule. BakerWrite speedwriting enables you to create a structure that works for you.

The course is arranged in bite sized sections so learning can fit easily into your busy day. Heather presents six modules during this course:

  • Introduction and the basics
  • Phonetic options, use (or not) of vowels, letter positioning, writing tips and prefixes
  • More prefixes
  • Build a vocabulary and suffixes
  • Dictation
  • Personal action plan

Every section includes practical and helpful exercises.

Each part lasts 6-7 minutes and you can press play, pause and repeat as you grow your skills and start to build confidence.

To achieve maximum benefit, we recommend learners master each step before moving onto the next.

Ideal for anyone wishing to develop their speedwriting skills
