They started with the manual typebar typewriter, and then they added an electric motor and presto! They introduced their version of the electric typewriter infollowed by the electric portable typewriter in When electronic typewriters were introduced, Smith Corona continued to be the leader in the portable typewriter industry with their Typetronic and Memory-Correct models. Typewriters with daisy wheels or printwheels that offered self-correction features were the most amazing thing that typists had ever seen, and Smith Corona kept on going.
Add info about how to use the correction paper. Accordionise the info page, and a new introduction written in OverType itself.
This is just a first draft of it; it needs tweaking to be more realistic. This avoids them reacting to certain keypresses eg cursor keys. Apologies if this causes accessibility problems for anyone.
Rearrange instructions page and add FAQ. Improved appearance of header. Fix an issue with redshift.
Textured page background on screen. Previously it was possible to prematurely type characters at the beginning of the next line before the CR had completed.
Sound upgrade fixes the problems with Word processor and typewriter synchronisation on Safari, so removed all the warnings about not using it. Animate a little wobble at the stop part of a CR. It just seemed like the sound demanded it.
The motion sound length depends on the line length, while the stop sound is the same for all. Fix colourshift lock always acting as caps lock too. We have no way of determining in advance which symbols are produced by which shifted key on your particular keyboard layout; so, shift-lock starts off using my keyboard layout UK Macbut whenever you use shift unlockedit will learn the real symbol on the shift position of that key, and will thenceforth use that in shift-lock too.
The fix for this is slightly shonky but can't be helped due to the insane differences between browsers on which events capslock fires. This means I no longer have to manually map keycodes to characters, which in turn means that you should now get the correct symbol characters according to your own keyboard layout.
Movement keys space, backspace, tab, and cursor keys now all move on keydown, not keyup. Provide a button to get the instructions page back. Fix the Safari warning being shown to Chrome users hopefully. Somewhat refactored the keydown handler into more digestible chunks. Make sure the page has fully loaded before you press [esc], as otherwise the browser will interpret it as a "stop loading" command.
When colour shift partially "fails", instead of printing the whole character in red and then overprinting part of it in black, which sometimes meant the red was somewhat visible beneath the black part, each part of the character is now clipped so they do not overlap.
Improved the algorithm for deciding how often, and by how much, colour shift "fails". Shift, colour shift, or both, can now be locked on by holding them down and pressing caps lock. Press caps lock again to release the lock. Note that unlike a computer's caps lock, a typewriter's shift lock behaves exactly as if shift were held down, so for example number keys produce symbols.
Rather than having a fixed offset for each character, and simply adding more random offset when Brokenness is increased, we now choose an offset and threshold for each character.
If Brokenness is above the threshold for that char, it will be offset by its consistent amount. This offset may then be randomly boosted or not by 1 or 2px at high Brokenness levels. Show the values of the sliders as numbers below them.
Hold [alt] to type red characters. Sometimes these will randomly be only partially red, to simulate failing to press the colour shift key hard enough. The frequency and amount of this failure is affected by the Brokenness control.

A high brokenness setting results in more wobbly and unevenly-inked text. A broken key never recovers until the brokenness is reduced back below this threshold, which unbreaks all of them.
The inkiness slider also monitors your current ink level - ie it reduces as you type. Start from the centre of the top line of the page, instead of the top-left. Left and right are the same as backspace and space.
Up and down feed the paper by a quarter of a line height at a time. Still, this way of positioning seems more flexible so I kept it.
This seems to look more realistic and also means that if you overtype characters they get darker as they should. Play the CR bell for tabs and spaces as well as normal keys.A new typewriter-like device offers a distraction-free writing experience.
