My Red LightSpeed

My Red LightSpeed

November 3, 2011


I'm so embarrased -- I haven't posted for a whole year! I guess I didn't say *which* November 2nd I was talking about in the last post!

The LSX has been put in cold storage. I think it was probably before its time. Hopefully it will show up again in the future.

The new LS which will be out in the next couple of weeks is the LSQ, a LightSpeed and a computer keyboard in a machined-aluminum case. A little heavier, but sturdy on your lap. I posted a picture on the Stenovations FaceBook page at!/StenovationsInc

I've taken it out on my jobs this week. It is great to be able to edit in my transcript without scooting around and moving my hands up to the computer and away from my machine. This is the first week I've not used my red LS, and I miss her a little bit!

New LSX pictures

I have been away from blogging a lot this year because I have been involved in lots of conferences and also participating in the campaign for my judge's re-election. After Nov. 2, I will pick back up again!

Johnny has shared pictures of the LSX prototype. Here they are for your viewing pleasure:

Hail the new LSX keyboard!

There are several programmable keys, such as:
The pentagon-shaped keys between the vowel keys.
Three areas on the asterisk key.
All four sensors on the far left auxiliary key.
The two round keys to the side of the vowel keys.
There are also now sensors under the braille-like dots between the * and F, the * and R, T and D, S and Z. Those sensors will also be programmable. That will permit those that do not use wide keys to program the sensors to be one or the other, that is, i.e., either -T or -D.
Of course, the LSX is the model that has a single sensor under what was formerly the crack.
All the various combinations of the upper and lower consonant keys can now be accurately achieved by touching one's finger(s) on the areas containing the braille-inspired dots.

The LSX model will sell for $3,000.
If you have purchased -- and not returned -- the first generation of silicone overlay writers, you can have your keyboard assemblies upgraded to the LSX model for no additional charge.
More information will be forthcoming between now and the national convention.

For those of you who prefer the original LightSpeed, 200 units of the original LightSpeed design, now referred to as the LightSpeed Classic, are now in advanced stages of manufacture by the same group of engineers who initially made them and should be available to start shipping sometime in June.

MSCRA in Tunica next week

Hi, LightSpeeders!

I'll be at the Mississippi Court Reporters Association convention in Tunica next week, Weds through Friday, at Harrah's. I look forward to seeing you there. Stop by the Stenovations booth for a test drive on the LightSpeed.
