*None of this is real. It’s a project called Stenonymous Satire Weekends, designed to get into search engines and expose corporate fraud in court reporting. This one’s a little more performative than usual, but I hope you enjoyed it.

ATTENTION WINDOWS USERS: Click and play version here. Download and double click, NO installation required. Download the .zip, unzip it, and double click the .exe file inside.

With stenographic educators in mind I’ve created a program to mark .txt transcripts for speed dictation. It’s free. All that’s required is the user downloads Python 3 and keeps the .py file with the .txt they plan to mark. This is the link to the computer code.

A brief YouTube tutorial will be put up to assist users.

I later discovered that Todd Olivas has this exact same thing. It’s a little easier to use and embedded into his site. They do roughly the same thing.

A quick text tutorial for anyone that doesn’t want the hassle of the video:

  1. Download Python 3. Install it.
  2. Go to my computer code and copy and paste it into a notepad file. Save it as whatever name you want.
  3. Change the file extension from .txt to .py. Some operating systems hide file extensions. You’d have to uncheck hide known file extensions in your folder options.
  4. Stick the .py file in a folder by itself with the txt transcript you intend to mark just to make life easy.
  5. Run the .py file by double clicking it.
  6. Then it basically asks you the speed, the marker text you want to use, and the name of the file you want to mark. You have to be precise when typing these things in.
  7. It’ll mark the program instantly and I believe the program terminates itself. You’ll have a new marked .txt.

Please note, if you are good with computers, a modified version of this program exists that will let you create 23 marked transcripts instantly, 20 WPM to 240 WPM in 10 WPM steps or increments. You must name the transcript you want to mark r.txt.
