WordVision 1.x

WordVision was a word processor from 1983 for the IBM PC with some features unique for the time period, such as unerase, automatic document saving, and long descriptive filenames at a time when DOS did not contain that support.

From an interesting technical standpoint, the installation disk was self booting: You booted from it to create working copies. The typical error beep was also replaced with a more pleasing "chime" sound while the program operated.

This archive was produced in cooperation with the designer, Jim Edlin, and came from original materials he provided.
