Have you ever seen those court reporters on tv shows. The people who sit at the little machines with their fingers typing fast, well, they write phonetically and also have many one stroke keys for entire sentences that might get repeated over and over again. Like for ex: prosecutor, judge, defense, defendant, witness, the state of, first degree murder etc.
Back on page 4 there's a list of Alt + numbers tricks to make symbols appear. I'm trying to put a copyright symbol in a Word (2007) document and it isn't working. Holding Alt while entering 0165 results in a "save document" box opening as soon as I hit the 1.
Thankfully, phonetic spelling never caught on.
It also seems to have a side to side movement that doesn't do anything on a page with normal script size.
Perhaps it would allow a person to make the print really large [use Ctrl+ or ++ or +++ etc] for easier reading and not only move up and down but side to side. I'll have to try it.
i've found that it's often easier to google the symbol rather than trying to remember the key combo...
