You can read about it here in Norwegian or automatically translated here by Google. It seems that a new system for doctors has been developed that will allow them to write by speech alone instead of relying on secretaries, but the system only writes in Bokmål and some that use Nynorsk are refusing to use the new system because Bokmål is a minority language in the part of the country where they live and thus another battle over the two forms has begun. The government plans to create a Nynorsk version but it is yet unknown when that will occur. Maybe in six months.
