I gave my first beginning steno lesson to the auction winner last week, using a new SideWinder and the latest version of Plover. She did remarkably well, for only an hour worth of steno training! I taught her how to write "the stoat sat at the top step" (old steno school habits die hard) and gave her some exercises on memorizing the vowels and diphthongs with S, T, P, and R. Hopefully this week we'll move on to some of the other consonants, and she'll be off and running. I'm also supposed to be having another Python lesson tomorrow, in which we're hoping to get qwerty emulation operational in the Linux version of Plover using Autokey. I'll keep y'all posted.
