Abstract
Passive haptic training can be used to teach motor skills using repeated tactile cues applied to the body. We explored the use of passive haptic training to teach participants how to produce various commonly-used phonemes with the stenotype keyboard, a phonetic chorded text input mechanism typically used by highly-trained stenographers. Using passive haptic training, we taught participants four common beginnings and four common endings to English words, then tested participants on thirteen combinations of these endings that produce full monosyllabic words in stenography. We found that, with an effective primer on the basics of the stenotype keyboard, PHL was able to teach not only how to write full words in stenography, but how to write individual reusable parts of words to be used as building-blocks for yet-unknown words.
