# Introduction

This is a work under construction.
That means there will be typos. The sections cover the beginning
Plover concepts but are missing the prefix and suffixes.
Any suggestions and/typos reports would be very welcome.
You can find me in the Plover discord as plants.

## What is Stenography?

As technology improved, stenography – shorthand writing – has expanded from pen and paper to machines and the computer. Steno experts can write faster with less effort using a specialized 23-key keyboard than a QWERTY keyboard.

This resource focuses more specifically on how to write steno with Plover, an open-source stenography engine from the Open Steno Project.
