Word processing is a form of computer technology that enables individuals to produce, edit, and manage text-based documents. Word processing programs are used to create everything from simple letters, memos, flyers and brochures to books and even large scale reports.The first word processors were developed in the late 1960s as an alternative to manual typewriters. This allowed users to input information into a computer using either a keyboard or a mouse. The software would then process the information and output it onto paper or some other storage medium such as magnetic tape or disk drive. The introduction of word processors revolutionised how people wrote documents as they could now type faster than ever before, instantly correcting their mistakes with the click of a mouse button rather than having to retype entire sections of text over again. The main advantage of using word processors is that they allow you to quickly make changes and additions without having to retype entire sections of your document from scratch every time you want something changed. Word processors also include features such as spell-checkers which can catch spelling errors before they’re printed out on final copies; this makes it easier for people who aren’t experienced typists or editors to create professional looking documents without having someone else proofread them afterwards. In addition, word processors can be used for things like creating tables, charts and graphs which many manual typewriters weren’t able to do at all or had limited capability for doing so when compared with modern day word processor software packages which often come with full spreadsheets included in them too. Overall, word processing has made it much easier for anyone working in an office environment where lots of writing is required on a regular basis because typing up long reports by hand would be incredibly tedious; not only does it save time but also reduces the risk of making silly mistakes due to tiredness that could potentially have serious repercussions for the company in question if published publicly.
