 guru.jpgStudents! Here's your steno tip from the Guru:  The Stentura® Protege® is the best machine you can buy if you need a computerized writer and want something newer that uses a USB direct cable.  Unfortunately since ribbons are no longer available and the quality of the used or "refurbished" ribbons is not great, we have decided to sell the Protege as Paperless.  You can still add your own ribbon and papertray, but those items are no longer included.   The Protege also has a direct USB connection allowing you to lose the USB to Serial adapter.  Certain CAT software (digitalCAT®, ProCat®, StenoCat, Apeiron (Cheetah), etc.) would still need the serial cable in order to connect and write realtime.  If you go the serial route you might also need a USB to Serial adapter.

Here's a chart to help you select a keyboard configuration.



Selecting keytop configurations can be confusing. Our recommendation is that if your present writer is configured a certain way then select the identical configuration.

It can be difficult to get used to something different. If this is your first writer than we would suggest talking to your school or teacher and asking what they would suggest.

Here are some options:
