Typey-Type Keeps Adding New Stuff

The amazing DiDoesDigital just keeps making Typey-Type better and better. From her most recent newsletter:

In the last few months, I’ve made a bunch of new Typey Type lessons:

Top verbs

Two Hanged Women by Henry Handel Richardson: Ethel Florence Lindesay Richardson was an Australian author who wrote Two Hanged Women under her pen name, Henry Handel Richardson. She most famously wrote The Fortunes of Richard Mahony, but it’s far too long for a good Typey Type lesson, so you get a short story instead!

The Man from Snowy River by Banjo Paterson: Andrew Barton “Banjo” Paterson was a bush poet, famous in Australia, even appearing on our $10 note. He also wrote “Waltzing Matilda”, our unofficial national anthem. For this lesson you’ll either want to download the latest Aussie vocab dictionary or treat it as fingerspelling practice when you reach “Kosciuszko”!

Virginia Woolf’s Monday or Tuesday short stories: “A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction”

Orthography rules to match the Learn Plover lesson on orthography rules

Stenotypos: This list of tricky words that are easy to slip up on using steno come from a combination of suggestions from Jenny and another community lessons contributor, Jeremy. It is meant to be hard, so you can get fast feedback on the finicky parts of stenography and kick any bad habits you might have with words that are frequently mixed up.

Cardinal Number Words: contains material like “one thousand”, “one hundred”, and “ninety”.

Ordinal Number Words: contains material like “thousandth”, “hundredth”, and “ninetieth”.
