Steno Machine Repair: Screen Damage

Stentura Fusion Main Screen

Stentura Fusion Screen

I take very good care of my machine. However, I must have inadvertently hit the screen with something because when I turned my machine on a few days ago, it had the above-pictured damage to the screen. I’m really attached to this machine. It’s the first professional machine that I saw in person. That was one of the reasons that I purchased this model over more popular models that were out at the time that I purchased it.

I called a few repair places to inquire about how much they would charge to fix it. However, I couldn’t get a clear estimate. I refuse to send my machine across several states without getting a proper estimate; that doesn’t sit well with me. It just might be time to get a new machine. I’m doing some research on the available options. If anyone has some information on a great repair place, or reasonably priced machines, let me know. Thanks.

Love, Speed, and Accuracy,

Steno Machine Case Cover

One of the steno machines I have has a light-colored carrying case. I noticed how dirty the case can potentially get. My schoolmates who have had the machine longer than I have, have cases that have become a bit weathered looking. If you carry the case hanging from your shouldered, it could also easily become stained from clothes dye when the case constantly rubs against your clothing.

Since this machine is the one that I am most likely to carry when I am not going to work, but still want to have a machine with me to practice at opportune times, I want to be able to keep the case as clean as possible.

Here is my method for protecting my steno machine carrying case:

Steno Machine: Passport Touch

I’m looking for the best professional machine to fit my needs. I have a machine, however, I want a backup machine. I am looking for a machine that has a great touch and minimum stacking. Stacking is a big issue, when it comes to realtime.

I will be posting information about the research I am doing on various machines.

Here’s a video highlighting the features on one of the newest machines on the market, the Passport Touch. I hope that I can get a chance to test out this machine in the near future.

Diamante Unboxing

From time to time I watch unboxing videos when I’m interested in a new electronic device. I found this video on the unboxing of the diamante. I’ve never had a diamante, or a wave, so I can’t personally vouch for this machine; however, I thought that this was a cool video to post. I made a similar type of video when I got my professional machine, I wanted to personally document a milestone in my court reporting journey. I hope to see some more unboxing videos for some other types of machines.
