We have experimentally demonstrated the technical feasibility of on-line Stenotype transcription for System/360 using a compacted dictionary program and a search algorithm for content addressing variable-length dictionary arguments. Methods of reducing word errors from twenty-seven percent to approximately six percent are discussed. Retraining in Stenotype extensions as well as modifications of the dictionary organization algorithm permit this reduction in the word-error rate.
