  • guru1.pngStudents! Here's your steno tip from the Guru:  The Stentura 400SRT is a fully computerized paper writer that will get you through school to 225 wpm and beyond with the same touch as most professional paper machines. The only drawback is no direct USB connection which we totally solve with a USB to serial adapter (included).  Make sure you know what CAT software you will be using, so we can include the correct adapter.

If you want to add a loaner or a loaner with expedited shipping please select that option.  Finally if you want your writer cleaned during the second year there is an option for that.

3. Keypads - If you want to optionally add cushioning or additional grip to the plastic keys then select one of our many keypad options.

4. USB to Serial - If you are planning on using DigitalCAT software then make sure you upgrade to the I/O Gear adapter.
