Text editing and correction


For a few years after the broad acceptance of the mechanical setting
machines (e.g. Linotype), special typewriters with perforated strip
output (perforators) are offered (from 1928, keyword Teletypesetter).
The punch strips control the setting machines, resulting in a much
higher typesetting speed.
Only from the emerge of monitors in the 1970s text will be electronically
acquired , until then, the punch tape is the only text data input possibility
for the Digiset.
From 1977 there is the possibility of electronic text input for the Digiset.


Details of the workflow of the text capture and its correction are described
in the article:
