tomorrow s word tools web publishing
Tomorrow’s Word Tools:Web Publishing
  • Electronic mail now outnumbers post office deliveries of letters
  • CD-ROM encyclopedias outsell their paper counterparts
  • The Internet offers mass publishing possibilities

Although printed material may not go away any time soon, consider this:

electronic books
Electronic Books
  • Students will download textbooks rather than carry them from the bookstore
  • Updates will come via the Internet
  • Downside is that you cannot pass it on to someone else like a book because of Digital Rights Act
  • Example: eBooks.comAmazon.com
  • eBook Devices

Recent technology encourages the future of electronic books:

electronic dictation and intelligent word processing
Intelligent word processors use artificial intelligence to assist the user in creating, editing, and finalizing a document.

Speech-recognition software uses your voice to execute commands and input words into a word processor.

This software has much improved, but still has weaknesses.
