Stenovations president Johnny Jackson announced that his company's next generation writer will be forthcoming around the Christmas holidays.
The StarLight, the current code name, will support audio recording, have a touch screen and multiple backup choices.
It will have a Windows® operating system, which means reporters and students will be able to load their personal CAT software on the writer.
The StarLight's weight will be in the range of two pounds, and the height will be an inch at its thickest point.
Mr. Jackson stated that anyone who has bought, or will be buying, a LightSpeed from Stenovations will receive 100% credit toward the purchase of a StarLight.
Mr. Jackson also announced that he has retired from reporting and is devoting all of his professional time to overseeing the design, development and manufacturing of the StarLight and future writers, as well as digitalCAT software.
