pfs:Write Spell Check Apple II

February 5, 2017

Here is the spell checker in action. Some successes, some whatttt?

The video is the correct word replacement effect. It’s pretty neat.

Now, some screenshots of some winners and losers of spell check.


Close, but not intuitive, like today.


pfs:Write for the Apple ll

February 5, 2017

Running this ProDOS version on my Apple lle Virtual ll Emulator. This was the Productivity Package I used prior to AppleWorks in the late 80’s. 

The Dictionary spell checking worked fairly well. I always test the Spell Checkers with misspellings and terms created since the 80’s like Internet, FaceBook, Instagram, Router, etc. Forgot to post a spell check session. I’ll add it.

pfs:Write was a simple word processor created by Software Publishing Corporation (SPC) in the early days of desktop computing. It included all the basic features common to most word processors of the day, including automatic word wrapping, spell checking, copy and paste, underlining, and boldfacing; and it also boasted a few of the most-commonly-used advanced features, such as mail merge and few others.
