If only typewriters let you proofread your
work before they printed it on the page.

What a mess!
You've just proofread your term paper
and it's got typos, spelling errors and
misplaced paragraphs.
Now, you can't hand in a paper like this.
So no matter how tired you are, you've
got to retype the entire thing.
That is, unless you typed it on
a Videowriter.*
The Videowriter solves all
your typing problems. 7/
Take the most obvious one:
On an ordinary typewriter
it would mean a bottle of
white-out and a frus-
trating interruption.
On a Videowriter
it just means press-
ing the key marked "delete" That's
all. Because you type your work on a
screen before you print it on a page.
It edits.
And how about those bigger problen
like wanting to rearrange paragraphs?
On an ordinary typewriter you have to "cut and
paste" them.
On a Videowriter you only have to press the key
marked "move" and then indicate the area you war
it moved to. It's that simple.
It spells.
What happens when you're typing and you com(
to a word you can't spell?
On an ordinary typewriter you have to stop typin
find a dictionary and look it up.
Not so on a Videowriter. Spelling problems can L
corrected simply by pressing the key marked "spell
It counts words.
If you've ever had a teacher tell you to write a
thousand word essay, you know what a pain it is
trying to count your words.
On an ordinary typewriter you have to do it with
your finger.
But on a Videowriter you can press a mere two

buttons and it does the counting for you.
It makes multiple copies.
From time to time you want a copy of
what you've typed, right?
Well, if you use a Videowriter you won't
have to go to the school library to look
for a copier machine.
All you'll have to look for is the
button marked "print." Press it
and the Videowriter will make
another original.
And because your work is auto-
matically stored on a standard
3 " floppy disk, you can
make those copies
whenever you
t~l want.
It obviously does
a lot more than type.
That's because the word pro-
cessing features just go on and on.
What's more, we sell the Videowriter® Word
Processor for around the price of a good electronic
zs typewriter.
And that's quite a bargain when you consider
the amount of time it'll save you. Time you can
spend doing the work for your other classes.
You would do that, wouldn't you?
