I have been training for the past month or so for a new job. All of the training takes place on my own, with an instructor working with me over the internet.
The job is transcribing at a local college. I may have explained this before, but I'll go back over it for those of you who are new, haven't been paying attention, etc.
Transcribing involves going to classes and typing a transcript of what happens in the class for deaf and hard of hearing students.
This means I have had to learn a completely new way of typing, with a special program, to speed up my abilities and catch as much meaning as possible. I will be doing meaning for meaning, not word for word. Basically I'll take information and chunk it. Exciting, eh?
Today has been an especially frustrating training day. I'm stuck in a lesson and can't get out. So I am giving myself a break. Hopefully the break works.
I thought I'd give you a taste of how this typing work. Good luck figuring out what that gibberish below might mean.

There you go. I'm not even sure I could translate that.
