Word processing

Word processing in its simplest form is the use of a word processor to create documents using computers. Word processing can also refer to advanced shorthand techniques, sometimes used in conjunction with specialised keyboards. In this sense of the term, the processing may or may not be being done on a computer terminal, but on a modified typewriter.

WordStar was the first commercially successful word processing computer program. Links to other word processing programs are at word processor.
