Alert! Software compatibility

Stenograph Support has advised Case CATalyst clients that the Tréal is compatible with their software simply by attaching a USB-to-Serial adapter between a Tréal shorthand keyboard and their software. This is a grossly inaccurate claim by that company. The Tréal driver must be implemented in the CAT software you use in order to recognize the input device as a Tréal. Many innovative CAT companies have completed this implementation and their customers are able to use the Tréal keyboard. Stenograph has not. Until we have been advised otherwise, it is our position that the Tréal keyboard will not function correctly with their software. Word Technologies will not knowingly sell the Tréal to and returns will not be accepted from users of non-compatible software. If you want to use this very light and inexpensive shorthand keyboard, you'll need Eclipse (www.eclipsecat.com), DigitalCAT (www.stenovations.com), Telitor (www.telitor.com), RapidText (www.rapidtext.com) or check with your CAT vendor to confirm compatibility with your software.

The Tréal is so cool.  I absolutely love it!  What makes writing on the Tréal so wonderful is its ergonomic design.  Our hands naturally approach the keys at an angle.  Word Technologies has angled the keys in exactly the same direction, so writing for extended periods of time puts much less strain on your wrists.  The Tréal has a very light touch.  The USB connection is ideal for today's notebook computers.  The Tréal's innovative design and very reasonable price is just icing on the cake. - Wil Wilcox, e-CourtReporter LLC

Word Technologies and the Treal, so far I love both!  I think your company is incredible as far as customer service and being willing to work with the customer (for example, sending me the second Treal to try -- I know of no other companies who would do that).  Even though I keep expecting you guys to tell me to just "get over it! and use the keyboard", you have been extremely patient and tried to help me come up with solutions to my problems. - Wanda B.

You don't know how great this is.  If this is what it seems, no longer does Stenograph have dominance in writing machines.  I've been waiting for just a keyboard.  I don't even use most of my stenograph machine.  It is heavy and I don't use the paper tray or even the display window.  Useless to me.  The only thing one needs is a keyboard.  Also (I'm sure I don't have to tell you) but the cost of absolutely everything about the Stenograph machine is outrageous. - Robyn M.
