Jade-GG's Phrasing System Practice On Typey Type

Hello everyone, take a look at this  https://github.com/Jade-GG/plover_phrasing If you haven't heard of the phrasing system developed by Mr. Jade-GG, you are missing out on the full potential of what steno can do. A phrasing system basically shortens an entire sentence into a single stroke. Just like how you write words in a single stroke (i.e. left, thumb, right), you can write word phrases in a single stroke by assigning the left, thumb, and right parts of the layout to words instead of sounds. For example, I can write "I don't really remember that" in just one stroke "SWROEURPLT". It's really fun once you get the hang of it. You can go here  to download the dictionary and import it into plover. You can also use a python dictionary if you have the python dictionary plugin installed through the plugin manager. Here is a lovely  visual representation of the entire system by Jen from the Plover discord:

Go to configure > machine then click Gemini PR. Click scan and try all the ports. 4. Make sure that plover is enabled. If you are using Linux, try looking at these steps by a customer.

Uni V2 on Ubuntu Debugging

 "I've had the Uni for a few days now, and it works just great with Ubuntu. However, it doesn't work straight out of the box. There is a simple enough fix and only requires a one-line terminal command to get it working. The issue is that, in order to read/write to a serial port (which is the protocol Gemini PR uses in Ubuntu), the user needs to be added to the dialout group. In theory, one could run Plover as a super user, but at least on my machine, Plover crashes for some reason when I try to run it with super user permissions, so I had to specifically change one permission for the regular user. If none of this makes sense, that's okay. Here's a step-by-step on what to do to get the Uni working in Ubuntu, and you're welcome to re-publish it on your Guide page or your Blog. The command should, in theory, work in Arch Linux distros too, but I recommend testing that before saying so on your website. 1. Press CTRL + ALT + T to bring up the terminal. 2. Type the f
