This typewriter features versatility. Two special application functions are
available on this typewriter. One is the merge function for printing many
letters of the same contents including different inside address. Another is the
optional electronic spelling dictionary and optional electronic thesaurus. This
section contains the general descriptions of these functions. For further

customers, the difference is only the inside address. Such typing is simple but
time consuming job. The very useful merge function is available on this

data.
