Abstract

This article describes a computer shorthand method of converting all words to a byte value with an optional byte value to be used as a word phonic. The problem is the large number of bits required to transmit and store data, word processing files or the spoken word. An additional problem is the need for a simple encryption process that uses a small data rate while providing easily modified coding with the required security. The solution is to assign a bit value to each word. There could be one or more standard bit value designations or a variable bit value determined by the user or program. We have computerized spell check programs to check for correct spelling. The computer shorthand word to bit value encoding would store the word output from a translation dictionary as a bit value.
