The use of computer-related devices has resulted in significant improvements in word processing, permitting better accuracy and more efficient turnover of paperwork in an office. A selective combination of these components comprises a computer-assisted writing and editing system for professionals at Argonne National Laboratory, used primarily for technical reports. Text is entered and corrected at a terminal keyboard, viewed on a CRT, and stored on a magnetic disc; camera-ready copy is obtained on an electrostatic printer. Engineers and scientists enter original text and do creative editing; typewriter-qualified personnel quickly learn to handle other editing and corrections; and computer-support personnel provide periodic file-management services.
