Software Description

Tasword is a word processor for the ZX Spectrum developed by Tasman Software. The first version was released in 1982 and spawned two major revisions in addition to several add-ons and, later, tailored versions for the +2 and +3 Spectrum models, the SAM Coup� and the Amstrad CPC range. Many of the features of modern word processors were included, such as justification, word wrap and page header. Features such as bold text and italic type were achieved through special escape sequences, ESC/P. Add-on products included TasMerge for mail merge functionality (which was later included in Tasword III and later versions) and TasSpell for spell checker.
