Computer technology has already changed writing habits, and it will do so further in the future. This book examines the effects of modern technology on writing in four distinct areas - writing at school, writing with the disabled, writing for electronic text, and writing and thinking. In each area papers are presented to show how technology has both changed and is changing writing processes. Computers can not only help writers to do routing tasks better - such as spelling, punctuating and writing readable prose - but they can also help writers to develop their thinking processes. Furthermore, in the case of handicapped users, they can release "trapped" intelligence. "Technology and Writing" is a collection of papers in this developing field, and is edited by one of the pioneers in the field of psychology and writing.
