TYPECASTING ON THE LETTERA 22
MSA/Lettera221956/2O22O114
So, inspired by Joe van Cleave's
Youtube videos, I thought I might
have another go at typecasting. I
have folded a piece of paper in half
and am using that to type on. It
looks like the typeface on this
Lettera is a little too large (it's
a Pica machine).
The idea is to type on the narrow
piece of paper, scan it, and then
place the image on your blog at a
size that can then be read by a
person on a mobile phone. So let's
see how that goes.
I will also scan the text and
either place the OCR'diversion
visible below the image, or I will
put it in hidden text (not quite sure
how to do that but I am quietly
confident tha.t it is possible). That
way it will get picked up by search
engines and such.
It's an interesting idea. One
that lets me wax lyrical a little
bit about the use of a typewriter in
2022.
I learned to type on typewriters
as part of their final swansong - in
the mid-80s. By the time I left uni
the computer age. was in full swing,
and I was a part of that. With my
Commodore XT computer and all. But
one thing that that early training
left me with was a bit of an eye for
detail.
So this typecasting that I see
today by other people - with baldly
formed letters, ragged left margins
(1), and terrible error correction
(if they notice their typos at all)
gives me a bit of a twitch in my
left eye.
I do think that learning on a
typewriter helped with good word
processing skills later - and helps
you know why you do things (like
line spacing). It's too easy to
make mistakes with computers and get
away with it. You get lazy. A
typewriter won't go well with that
kind of poor discipline.
Anyway - there's probably a thesis
or two in that viewpoint. For now -
let's just see if this experiment
works. Bye for now from the
Typecasting on the Deck series J
