New Cross-Platform Steno Hero Demo!

There's a new version of the Steno Hero demo, with flashier gameplay, and it now runs on Windows, Mac, and Linux! Go download it from its Steam Greenlight page, and if you have a Steam account but haven't already, please give us a vote! The crowdfunding campaign site is extremely close to launching, so stay tuned for that!

As you can see from the video above, I only managed to get 77% accuracy on Jonathan Coulton's I Feel Fantastic. Can you beat my score? If so, send me a screencast, and I'll post it! It's a doozy.

Also, The Open Steno Project now has a Discord server (a Slack-style alternative to IRC), which you can access for free via browser or mobile app. There have been some great discussions on there (I try to pop in at least once a day), and there's some talk about forming a beginning steno learner's group, so sign on if you're interested in that sort of thing.

Also also, the HTML5 version of Plover Learn is now hosted on the stenoknight server, for easier access to all potential Plover learners! Thanks again, tthurman!

How would you join the Discord plover server? When following the link Discord just opens, but doesn't join the channel/server. When I want to manually join the server I am asked for an invite url.

Hey, I've updated the link in the post and on the sidebar for the Discord server, should be working now, sorry about the confusion.

when I use my steno machine to answer, it outputs the correct word but doesn't advance to next item. Workaround?
