Welcome to Keyscript.  On this site you will find out all about this new rapid, fully alphabetical shorthand.  Just click the page titles above.  There are additional pages under 'More'.

Hello, I'm Janet.  I am a qualified Pitman Shorthand teacher.  I have created a shorthand system which uses only the lower case letters of the alphabet.  This is called Keyscript.  It can be handwritten or typed.  The saving in writing time with Keyscript is around 60%, so you will be able to write or type 2½ times as fast as normal English.



There is a course for Keyscript Shorthand called the 'Lightning Guide to Keyscript'.   It is fully integrated with exercises for each stage of theory.   The theory is in 9 logical stages, each stage building on the one before.

Answers are given to all exercises so you can tell whether you are on the right track. 


There is a unique speed chart which enables the dictation of any passage in the exercises at speeds from 20 to 150 words per minute.


If you have any questions, you can email me at:

The cost of the course is now $29.00 AUD for a password protected pdf.
