Clearly in View

  • The vibrant flat-panel screen clearly displays steno outlines as you write them, giving you the best kind of feedback – immediate feedback-- to enable you to practice proper technique, the most expeditious way to advance your consistency and speed
  • Stop writing to read back fluently while scrolling notes up or down.  With plenty of context to help you interpret what you’ve written, you’ll confidently recite the spoken word.  Start writing and you’re instantly back “on the record.”

Display & Navigation Functions

  • Scroll Up/Down to find point of readback
  • Select font size to one of five choices for larger text or more context
  • Search for Last Mark to verify or read something you marked earlier
  • Search for a steno outline to find a point of readback.
  • Change backlight setting for varying lighting conditions.
  • Slant the display panel up to 65°
  • Personalize the Splash Screen with .jpg files of your own pictures

Realtime Ready

  • Included with the Wave is a standard plug-and-play USB cable that makes connecting to realtime a breeze.  Your teachers will love it as transferring test notes for evaluation is a snap! 

On-Board Memory

  • A fifty-page memory provides storage of practice materials to be transcribed later. Select all or specific practice sessions when you have access to a CAT computer to transcribe homework or practice. Clear memory and start fresh with new dictation when memory indicates that it is full.

Grab and Go

  • Just grab your writer and go – to another class or down the hall – utilizing built-in hand-grips. It’s only 4.5 pounds. Included is a wheeled backpack to hold the writer, tripod, and a special Jet Bag that protects the writer inside the backpack. The Jet Bag functions as a compact shoulder bag for carrying the writer separately from the wheeled backpack when you don’t need all your accessories.

The ideal writer for realtime captioners

  • Using the same extraordinary technology as the professional Diamante writer, the Wave writer provides amazing results at a fraction of its cost. By eliminating redundancy yet keeping the phenomenal TrueStroke technology from the Diamante the Wave enables cleaner output than ever.

TrueStroke Touch 

  • TrueStroke technology (patent-pending) utilizes software to accurately track the movement of each individual keystroke. It replaces traditional contact adjustments and helps you achieve cleaner writing with less effort. It's the same technology used in the Diamante® writer adopted by thousands of professional reporters.

Comfort Adjustments

  • Tension and Depth adjustment wheels are easily within reach.
  • Slant display panel up to 65 degrees for use in varying lighting conditions.
  • Easily adjust the keyboard slant +-10° for comfort and variety in posture. 

EasyLock® Z12 Tripod

  • Weighing only 1 1/4 pounds and folding to a mere 12 inches the Z12 stands straight in front of you for perfect writing position.  The tilt mechanism, which is recessed in the bottom of the writer, enables adjusting the slant +-10 degrees for comfort and variety in posture. The manual lift center steel column makes those final tripod height adjustments smooth and easy.

Student Trade-in Guarantee

  • Students who purchase the Wave steno machine receive our Upgrade Guarantee, making it one of the best investments you can make. If you buy a professional shorthand writing machine within four years of purchasing your Wave student steno writer we'll guarantee 90% of the current sale price of the writer.  This trade in value must be applied toward the purchase of any upgraded professional writer package (that has a 25% greater value than your student package)
