Stenographers use shorthand to write as quickly as people speak. Stenography is often used in recording court cases today, but was also taught in school in previous decades to help secretaries get jobs.

Gregg shorthand, the most common form of shorthand in the United States, is one of the fastest ways on the planet to record spoken conversations. For a frame of reference, a new stenographer can write at a speed of 80 words per minute, whereas someone who is more experienced can achieve a speed of 150 words per minute. The average American typing speed on a computer is about 40 words per minute. 

This Gregg Ruled Stenographer's Notebook features a lined page with a vertical line going down the middle of the page. Following the guidelines of Gregg shorthand, stenographers would write from the left margin of the page to the middle of the page, where the vertical line is, and start the next line. This shorter line would be an additional way of saving time, enabling stenographers to write even faster.
