I decided to try out shorthand when the pain in my hands made note-taking very difficult. Shorthand uses far fewer strokes than regular handwriting. It was developed to make note-taking faster. In my case, it means I can jot down more words for the same amount of pain and effort. This was a big investment of time though. It’s taken a lot of practice to get fluent and might not be worth it for many people.
