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 :
That is, unless you typed it
on a Videowriter*
The Videowriter solves
all your typing problems.
Take the most obvious
one: typos.
On an ordinary
typewriter it
would mean a
bottle of white- -
out and a frustrating interruption.
On a Videowriter it just means
pressing 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 problems
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 want it
moved to. It's that simple.
It spells.
What happens when you're typing and you come to
a word you can't spell?
On an ordinary typewriter you have to stop typing,
find a dictionary and look it up.
Not so on a Videowriter. Spelling problems can be
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 ma-
chine. 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
automatically stored
on a standard
31/2" floppy
disk, you can
make those copies when-
ever you want.
It obviously does a lot more
a than type.
That's because the word processing features
just go on and on.
What's more, we sell the Videowriter® Word
Processor for around the price of a good electronic
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?
