Internet Contest 2021
It is open to students from public, private schools or associations and for seniors who register through their Intersteno National group.
The certificate received by successful participants is an important asset for professional life.
The goals are to foster proficiency in the use of the keyboard and to engage young people in fair and healthy competition with their peers all over the world. Each competitor can compare his results with those of other participants of the same age category not only in his native language, but also in foreign languages.
Thanks to this competition, schools are able to show their presence on the Web at the international level about a useful ability at any learning level. It is clear that a professional approach in keyboarding is a basic competence useful in any type of school and helps to fulfill the growing demand for producing documents and communicating with the aid of computers and tablets.
The contest consists of ten-minutes of text entry, using special software available on the website www.intersteno.org (in Taki and ZAV formats).
Grading in accuracy and speed are done according to internationally agreed-upon standards based on long experience and intensive investigations.
Unfortunately, we were not able to offer you the Latin version of the Japanese language as announced. The “Kenji” text can’t be offered as well. The competitors of “All Japanese Typists group” competed in the usual 16 languages, but not in their mother tongue.
Our “All Japan Typists” friends are still welcome to participate in their own language in our contest, so we hope to receive a text in Japanese. Nevertheless, after competing in 16 languages, the software will no longer allow them to continue: so, they must take care that the 17th language is not Japanese!
During the opening ceremony of the 52nd congress in Cagliari (July 2019), Jaroslav Zaviačič and Helena Zaviačičová awarded 8 winners of the 2019 Internet contest. Of course they were present to participate in the World Championship! Most of them were successful and classified in the first places in their age category.
It is open to students from public, private schools or associations, and for seniors (21 years and over) who register through their Intersteno National group.
