About Gregg Shorthand - I learned it with my wife about 5 years ago when she got a job advancement at work. She manages several staff members, but also has to take notes in meetings and confidentiality does not allow recorded meetings.
I did much better at it than she, which worked out good, came to be she really didn't need it. But I tend to think I did well being versed in Morse Code, it all it either audible to me, doing Gregg flows, it is very audible in your head as you compose it to paper. Like sheet music I suppose although that I never was exposed too.
Shorthand is fun, I worked on learning well beyond my wife, gave me something new to do on the long slow work nights. I use it too - if not I know I'll lose it. Morse code you lose your edge if you don't do it for long periods, I know Gregg would be the same.
I do think Court Steno machines are cool - watched a few Youtube videos on that - again, you are turning sound into print (or directly to PC in most cases where it is instantly changed to full court records.
I do know where kids see cursive writing though - video games where they solve massive puzzle adventures, like find the match and the lantern, to see the key to open the chest to get the note - almost all those types of games use cursive in their graphics of letter written for the gamer to read. So, some may have to struggle a bit to read what is said, but hey that's how life works.
