Plover: Thought to Text at 240 WPM

A session at PyCon US 2013

Sunday 17th March, 2013

1:10pm to 1:40pm (PST)

Stenographic technology has been locked down to expensive, proprietary hardware and software for decades, depriving the world of the most efficient text entry system devised to date. Plover, a free, cross-platform steno engine that works with $45 hardware, offers hackers and hobbyists the ability to type at up to 240 WPM in applications ranging from wearable computing to captioning to coding.
