Description from the packaging.

The Word Processor that Spells V-A-L-U-E!

Up until now you'd have to spend hundreds of dollars for a "powerful" word processor. Even worse, once you had your "comprehensive" new package, it would have taken you forever to figure out how to use it. Your only alternative was to buy a "simple" word processor that simply wasn't powerful.

Now there's Write 'n Spell- the perfect combination of power and ease of use, at a price that spells V-A-L-U-E! Write 'n Spell has all the features you'd expect in a commercial level word processor and much more- like a built-in 90,000 word dictionary that automatically checks and corrects your spelling. Best of all, Write 'n Spell exclusive on-screen Function Line, built-in Context Sensitive Help feature, and "learn-as-you-go" Option Windows make Write 'n Spell so easy that even beginners can be using it in minutes!

Write 'n Spell's Powerful Features Include:

  • Exclusive on-screen function line that eliminates memorization and clumsy keyboard overlays or templates.
  • On-Screen option windows that allow you to learn as you type.
  • Professionally designed User's Guide with easy to follow Tutorial Lessons and feature by feature Reference Section.
  • Ability to easily add over 10,000 words to the dictionary to "customize" your dictionary to meet form letters.
  • Built-in mail merge for personalizing form letters.
  • Ability to easily edit one document while printing another- a super time saver.
  • Built-in graphing capability with printers that use the IBM extended character set which allows you to produce charts and graphs with a crisp, professional appearance.
  • supports over 70 popular printers.
  • On-screen bold and underscore during typing.
  • Automatic page numbering as well as three-line headers and footers.
  • Horizontal scrolling for wide documents such as spreadsheets.
  • Ability to merge data from other programs such as PSI's report 'n file, 1-2-3, MultiPlan, dBase 3, PFS.file and most other popular programs.
  • Includes utility program to convert text from most major word processing programs.
  • Many other features too numerous to list.

Invest in the best, for less. Write 'n Spell- the word processing system that spells V-A-L-U-E, and 90,000 other words too!

  • Integrated 90,000 word Dictionary automatically checks and corrects your spelling- improving the quality of your work.
  • Preview function allows you to see all of your text (e.g. bold, underscore, justification, graphs, margin changes, etc.) as it would print.
  • Context sensitive Help windows "pop up" at the touch of a key. You'll hardly ever need the User's Guide!
