Sue (PS1WT) [1] Like normal people have their computers set up so that they print out.
John (PS1WS) [2] Before I went out, I
Sue (PS1WT) [3] You muck it up.
John (PS1WS) [4] I printed out
Sue (PS1WT) [5] On purpose.
John (PS1WS) [6] I printed out.
[7] ... Didn't I?
Sue (PS1WT) [8] Yes I know but from Wor Works.
John (PS1WS) [9] No I didn't print out from Works, I printed out from Diary.
[10] I went into Diary and I printed out my appointments for next week.
[11] And I didn't get funny numbers and silly squiggles, cos I used a reasonable package and not WordPerfect.
[12] ... So ... what is your problem young lady?
Sarah (PS1WU) [13] Oh there's no problem with me. [laugh]
John (PS1WS) [14] Did you want to print, did you want to print something?

Sarah (PS1WU) [16] Yeah I'm writing a letter to mothers I'm writing a letter to mum ... and I just wanted it to be [...] .
John (PS1WS) [17] [laughing] She can read it from the screen, she doesn't need it printed out [] .

Sarah (PS1WU) [19] I'll write a letter to Chris [...]
John (PS1WS) [20] And other people.
Sue (PS1WT) [21] [...] Yes.
John (PS1WS) [22] Right.
Sarah (PS1WU) [23] Well Chris. [laugh]
Sue (PS1WT) [24] Not to other people.
John (PS1WS) [25] Right.
Sarah (PS1WU) [laugh]
John (PS1WS) [26] So, would we like to try printing something out from WordPerfect?
Sue (PS1WT) [27] Save that now Sarah.
Sarah (PS1WU) [28] [...] finished.
Sue (PS1WT) [29] No but you save it
John (PS1WS) [...]
Sue (PS1WT) [30] before you finish.
Sarah (PS1WU) [31] Can I just finish my sentence please,
John (PS1WS) [32] Right.
Sarah (PS1WU) [33] so I know what I'm talking about?
John (PS1WS) [34] Yes.
[35] [...] have I got to finish my sentence?
Sue (PS1WT) [36] How did your lesson go?
John (PS1WS) [37] I don't know.
[38] I haven't had time to think yet, I've only just got back in [...] on the phone and sorting out the printer.
Sarah (PS1WU) [laugh]
John (PS1WS) [39] It was alright it wasn't, I wasn't
Sarah (PS1WU) [...]
John (PS1WS) [40] I wasn't looking forward to it much, it was better than expected.
[41] I managed to c to cover virtually the complete G C S E chemistry course in an hour and a half.
[42] ... And, actually it was more than an hour and a half.
[43] It was an hour and a half plus about ten minutes cos those C ninety tapes are about five minutes too long on each side. ...
Sue (PS1WT) [44] Erm I'm afraid dinner's gonna be a little later than I anticipated cos that chicken is quite big isn't it?
John (PS1WS) [45] Mm. ...
Sue (PS1WT) [46] Also we seem to be awfully short of knives.
John (PS1WS) [47] We are.
Sue (PS1WT) [48] I think they must in the van.
John (PS1WS) [49] I don't think so.
[50] I noticed there were very few there yesterday.
Sue (PS1WT) [51] I haven't got anything to do the vegetables with.
John (PS1WS) [52] There were some not too long ago but ...
Sarah (PS1WU) [53] [...] ?
Sue (PS1WT) [54] Well I think they're in the van John actually, or you've used them to stir paint with and other things.
Sarah (PS1WU) [...]
John (PS1WS) [55] Could be.
Sarah (PS1WU) [56] Secretary.
[57] Is that how you spell secretarial?

John (PS1WS) [65] Okay.
[66] Would you like to save that?
Sarah (PS1WU) [...] [laugh]
John (PS1WS) [67] Do you know how, do you know how to save it?
Sarah (PS1WU) [68] No.
John (PS1WS) [69] How do you save it Sue?
Sue (PS1WT) [70] Well I I do F ten but er that may be set up differently you see.
[71] Everything has been changed.
Sarah (PS1WU) [laugh]
John (PS1WS) [72] I would try F ten.

Sue (PS1WT) [74] Yeah.
John (PS1WS) [75] Mhm.
[76] If you don't know what to do ... [cough] right.
Sarah (PS1WU) [77] Right.
John (PS1WS) [78] Now this is set up differently cos this is set up very sensibly, so that you can fill in who wrote it, when, what date and what it's about, and when you try and find it later it's easier to find instead of scrapping through lots of files that don't have a long document [...] .
Sue (PS1WT) [79] Yes and also take long long time if you do the sort of ... volume of work that I have to do.
John (PS1WS) [80] Now that's true.
[81] Okay.
[82] So [...] the date [cough] document name.
[83] What do you want to call it?
[84] If you press N
Sarah (PS1WU) [85] N?

[87] Erm what do you want to call it?
Sue (PS1WT) [88] Mumsy.
Sarah (PS1WU) [89] Letter to mum.
[90] Mum.
[91] Mumsy. [laugh]
John (PS1WS) [92] Call it mumsy then.
Sarah (PS1WU) [93] [laugh] ... [cough] ... Is that how you say it?
[94] Mumsy?
John (PS1WS) [95] Well it's your word, you spell it the [laughing] way you want [] .

Sarah (PS1WU) [469] Okay.
John (PS1WS) [470] And the other thing is were you running from the hard drive or from that floppy? ... [tape ends] ... [...] cos I didn't want the tape-recorder travelling.

John (PS1WS) [944] Much easier to remember than two.
Sue (PS1WT) [945] [...] the figures.
[946] ... Ooh.
Sarah (PS1WU) [947] And we're still not printing.
John (PS1WS) [948] I would think that your rubbishy version of WordPerfect is [...] thinking it's an H P Laserjet.
Sue (PS1WT) [949] Yeah.
John (PS1WS) [950] Right.
[951] So if you'd like to get out, of come out of Word oh first of all
Sue (PS1WT) [952] I think I'd better go and check the chicken now.
John (PS1WS) [953] reset, let's select printer.
[954] So F one F one to tell us what we use to select the printer.
Sue (PS1WT) [955] Do you know my [...] hot.
John (PS1WS) [956] Which is [...] the
Sarah (PS1WU) [957] Mm so's mine actually.
John (PS1WS) [958] Shift F seven.
[959] So enter to get out of help.
[960] Shift F seven.
[961] And select printer.
Sarah (PS1WU) [962] And select printer.
John (PS1WS) [963] Because this has all been mucked up too.
[964] This
Sue (PS1WT) [965] Right.
John (PS1WS) [966] also thinks it's an H P Laserjet Two D now.
[967] So let's set that.
[968] Bring it down a bit to a Panasonic K X P Eleven Twenty Four
Sarah (PS1WU) [969] Yeah.
John (PS1WS) [970] and enter.
[971] Right it should now
Sue (PS1WT) [972] [...] page
John (PS1WS) [973] and now if you try and ... page it might work.
[974] I don't know. [...] .
Sue (PS1WT) [975] Ah there we are.
John (PS1WS) [976] Now it's all because somebody has been messing about with [...] .
Sarah (PS1WU) [977] Wasn't me.
John (PS1WS) [...] [...]
John (PS1WS) [978] All that messing about getting the printer to change was, came from not knowing where you are.
[979] That's enough of that.
Sarah (PS1WU) [980] Yeah.
John (PS1WS) [981] So that works.
Sarah (PS1WU) [982] As long as we know now that it works.
John (PS1WS) [983] That works.
[984] Erm
Sarah (PS1WU) [985] I want to finish off the letter now anyway.
John (PS1WS) [986] The formatting looks a bit erm a bit silly doesn't it?
[987] So we'd better, we'd better sort that out a bit.
[988] Erm first of all we'll get this ready ... for head of the form.
[989] So we'll just use the line feed one at a time.
[990] Until it comes up to the next page.
[991] ... And we want that, there's the head of the page.
[992] We want that just about on the black line.
Sarah (PS1WU) [993] Right.
John (PS1WS) [994] At the bottom of the black [...] .
[995] So just there.
Sarah (PS1WU) [996] Right.
John (PS1WS) [997] And we put that in cos otherwise that'll come down and get jammed in the printer head.
Sarah (PS1WU) [998] Right.
John (PS1WS) [999] Now at the moment it's still got its headed form set, up here somewhere.
[1000] So switch the printer off.
[1001] And when you switch the printer back on, wherever it is when it's switched on, it thinks that's the head of the form.
[1002] That's the top of the piece of paper.
Sue (PS1WT) [1003] Right.
John (PS1WS) [1004] So switch it on again now.
[1005] And next time you print it should think it's a K X P Eleven Twenty Four and it should think it's at head of form and print everything out beautifully.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1006] So I can finish off the, I want to finish off the letter now.
John (PS1WS) [1007] Now on that letter ... how was it printing out?
[1008] You've got margins set at looks like one point three inches on the left and one inch on the
Sarah (PS1WU) [1009] Yeah.
John (PS1WS) [1010] That's okay.
[1011] Erm have you put tabs in here or spaces? ...
Sarah (PS1WU) [1012] Erm
John (PS1WS) [1013] If you do F eleven ... it'll show all the characters.
[1014] It shows you what you've got here.
[1015] You've got hard returns, soft returns ... [whispering] soft returns [] so you've got spaces in here.
[1016] Erm did you want your spaces in?
[1017] I mean some of them have got spaces and some of them haven't.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1018] Well it was like a new paragraph but I didn't leave a line.
[1019] [...] new paragraphs.
John (PS1WS) [1020] Oh okay.
[1021] So if you go down to where you've got new paragraphs, and just do enter.
[1022] [...] blank line [...] if you'd like to go down and first of all F eleven to gen to get rid of these codes.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1023] Yeah.
John (PS1WS) [1024] And then you've got it back the way it was.
[1025] You can just come down to everywhere you want a new
Sarah (PS1WU) [1026] Using this cursor?
John (PS1WS) [1027] Yeah using that.
[1028] Or that one or the mouse.

[1031] Have you got spaces?
[1032] Take out that.
[1033] ... [...] to there.
[1034] Er don't take it to the I.
[1035] Leave it to the [...] .
[1036] Leave it set hard against the left.
[1037] Don't bring it over to the first character, leave it exactly where it is.
[1038] Because
Sue (PS1WT) [1039] Why?
John (PS1WS) [1040] otherwise you'll put a few spaces then a new line and this will go [...] .
Sarah (PS1WU) [1041] Right so you just press enter.
John (PS1WS) [1042] Okay.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1043] And the bring it down.
John (PS1WS) [1044] Mhm.

Sarah (PS1WU) [1046] [laughing] Mhm [] .
John (PS1WS) [1047] Erm now right, now see what you did.
[1048] ... End will take you to the end of that line.

John (PS1WS) [1090] And then it'll be ready for printing out.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1091] Alright.
John (PS1WS) [1092] So if you escape, you'll, actually, while you're in there, if you want to have a look at two hundred percent.
[1093] Try two for two hundred percent.
[1094] You can read it a bit more easily.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1095] Oh. [cough]
John (PS1WS) [1096] [...] if you escape.
[1097] Erm after that, [reading] dear mum [] , okay escape again.

John (PS1WS) [1118] So another new line, another enter.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1119] Oh right.
John (PS1WS) [1120] These, these two keys produce exactly the same effect.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1121] Okay yeah.
John (PS1WS) [1122] They both enter new lines.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1123] Right.
[1124] Erm ...
John (PS1WS) [1125] Now do you mind if I read this or not?
[1126] Would you rather I didn't read it?
Sarah (PS1WU) [1127] No I don't mind, no I don't mind.
John (PS1WS) [1128] Okay.
[1129] I'll show you how to spell check it. ...
Sarah (PS1WU) [1130] Just gen general gossip really [laugh] ... [...] ...
John (PS1WS) [1131] We're just going to spell check it now.
[1132] Just finishing off.
[1133] We've had a preview to see what it looks like.
[1134] It fits on the page.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1135] As well, is it two words or one?
Sue (PS1WT) [1136] Two words.
John (PS1WS) [1137] Two words.
Sue (PS1WT) [1138] Well it's my day off tomorrow from cooking.

Sue (PS1WT) [1151] Yes.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1152] Erm
Sue (PS1WT) [1153] and would do very well at it if it was a sensible package and not the rubbishy WordPerfect.
Sue (PS1WT) [1154] Yes it isn't it really John.
John (PS1WS) [1155] No [...] . ...
Sue (PS1WT) [1156] I mean I'm fairly used to what I've got at work now.
[1157] Because I virtually use all the same functions, all the time you know.
John (PS1WS) [1158] Yeah.
[1159] ... [...] capital Xs.
Sarah (PS1WU) [...]
John (PS1WS) [1160] It's alright leave that.
Sarah (PS1WU) [laugh] ...

Sarah (PS1WU) [1162] Yeah [...] .
John (PS1WS) [1163] Okay so let's
Sarah (PS1WU) [1164] Bring it back to the top.
John (PS1WS) [1165] just spell check the whole document.
[1166] So F one F one.
[1167] And where's it tell you about spell checking?
Sarah (PS1WU) [1168] Erm
Sue (PS1WT) [...]
Sarah (PS1WU) [1169] I can't even see.
[1170] Oh sorry F two.
John (PS1WS) [1171] Right.
Sue (PS1WT) [1172] It's control F two.
John (PS1WS) [1173] Okay so it's F, it's the top one of the four.
[1174] Which, and this one tells you how to interpret them.
[1175] So, and they're all in different colours as well.
[1176] So it's control and F two.
[1177] So first of all have, read, read the instructions on the screen.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1178] Press enter to help.
[1179] Control and F two.
John (PS1WS) [1180] Right. ...
Sarah (PS1WU) [1181] Mm.
John (PS1WS) [1182] And now again the instructions are on the bottom line.
[1183] You've told it to spell check.
[1184] Do you want to spell check one word, a page, the whole document or what?
Sarah (PS1WU) [1185] The page.
Sue (PS1WT) [1186] No.
John (PS1WS) [1187] We'll do the whole document.
Sue (PS1WT) [1188] Oh right.
John (PS1WS) [1189] So D D for document.
[1190] Right now [reading] forty two A [] .
[1191] Okay ignore that.
Sue (PS1WT) [1192] Skip.
John (PS1WS) [1193] Ignore numbers.
Sue (PS1WT) [1194] It's skip on that John it's not ignore.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1195] So I just press two?
John (PS1WS) [1196] Right well hang on there was a little difference of opinion there.
[1197] Ignore numbers will ignore all numbers throughout the document, and in case there are any others in there.
[1198] Skip will just skip what we were ignoring.
[1199] So skip again.
[1200] Skip.
[1201] It's saying Sussex isn't a word that I know about.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1202] Oh right.
John (PS1WS) [1203] It's not in its dictionary.
[1204] It doesn't mean it's spelt incorrectly.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1205] Did you put the words in?
John (PS1WS) [1206] No.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1207] Oh.
[1208] And press two again?
[1209] Yeah.
John (PS1WS) [1210] Yeah.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1211] And again.
John (PS1WS) [1212] And it'll find the next So skip again for ninth.
[1213] It's [...] Right now it's suggesting words.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1214] Oh it's, oh yeah.
[1215] I got it wrong.
John (PS1WS) [1216] Right so which do you think it should be?
Sarah (PS1WU) [1217] A.
John (PS1WS) [1218] A.
[1219] Okay so if you type A, it will put weird in.
[1220] Now Hastings, what are you going to do with that?
Sarah (PS1WU) [1221] Erm nothing, cos it's right.
John (PS1WS) [1222] Yeah skip.
[1223] Right coursework?
[1224] I think you can put it as one word if you like.
[1225] It probably wants it hyphenated but we'll just say skip, if you're happy with the spelling.
[1226] Halt.
Sarah (PS1WU) [...]
John (PS1WS) [1227] Okay yeah.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1228] [...] Yeah that's right.
[1229] [...] is right.
[1230] That's right.
John (PS1WS) [1231] No [...] .
Sarah (PS1WU) [1232] Got a hyphen?
John (PS1WS) [1233] Yeah it hasn't, didn't have a hyphen but argue that's okay.
[1234] ... Now how do you spell keyboard?
[1235] Let it suggest, oh it's not suggesting anything.
[1236] Well isn't that weird?
Sarah (PS1WU) [laugh]
John (PS1WS) [1237] It hasn't got any suggestion for keyboard.
[1238] Right so we'll have to come back to keyboard and you can change it, I think.
[1239] Can you edit?
[1240] Four.
Sue (PS1WT) [1241] Yes.
John (PS1WS) [1242] So you just move your cursor along.
[1243] [...] after that O and before the R.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1244] How do you spell keyboarding then?
John (PS1WS) [1245] It's got an A in.
[1246] Before between the O and the R.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1247] Oh of course it's A isn't it?
[1248] And again or do I put A
John (PS1WS) [1249] And again.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1250] and then put A.
John (PS1WS) [1251] And you have to insert it before where you've got the cursor.
[1252] So put the A in before the R.
[1253] But you don't want a capital.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1254] [laugh] Backspace.
John (PS1WS) [1255] Backspace delete.
[1256] Okay.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1257] [...] keyboarding wrong.
John (PS1WS) [1258] Exit when finished.
[1259] You know it's a very helpful thing, it doesn't tell what exit is.
[1260] So you're stuck there for life unless a young lady from the audience can help us out here?
Sue (PS1WT) [1261] Oh you just
John (PS1WS) [1262] Exit it says.
[1263] Press exit.
[1264] We've finished editing we want to get back in
Sue (PS1WT) [1265] F seven.
John (PS1WS) [1266] Okay.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1267] No.
Sue (PS1WT) [1268] You've got your F eleven up have you?
John (PS1WS) [1269] No.
Sue (PS1WT) [1270] No it's still going.
John (PS1WS) [1271] It does that in spell checking.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1272] Now I [...] .
Sue (PS1WT) [1273] Okay.
John (PS1WS) [1274] So you can skip that now.
[1275] ... And it's, it's checked the lot.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1276] Mm.
John (PS1WS) [1277] So independence was right.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1278] Yeah.
John (PS1WS) [1279] Okay?
[1280] And it's found, it's found most of your spelling errors and it's counted the words for you.
[1281] There were four hundred and fifty three.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1282] God it's like an essay.
[1283] [...] an essay.
John (PS1WS) [1284] Now one of the things it didn't do, was it didn't pick any of your grammatical errors out.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1285] Mm.
John (PS1WS) [1286] Erm what it counts as a spelling error is if the word isn't in the dictionary, it's a spelling error.
[1287] Now if you use T H E I R when you should be using T H E R E,
Sarah (PS1WU) [1288] Oh yeah.
John (PS1WS) [1289] it doesn't throw it out as a spelling error cos it counts it
Sue (PS1WT) [1290] Oh right because it's a recognized word.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1291] Yeah.
John (PS1WS) [1292] But you can get grammar checkers which would check that and throw it out and say that's not right.
[1293] So any key to continue.
[1294] And you do have a T H E R E or something up there.
[1295] So if you go, if you page up several times to get to the start of the document.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1296] Page up?
John (PS1WS) [1297] Which is that one
Sarah (PS1WU) [1298] Oh sorry.
John (PS1WS) [1299] Okay page up.
[1300] Now somewhere, I think near the beginning there was a there.
[1301] So it's not in that lot so page down to the next one.
[1302] ... Erm right, [reading] when there are [] , is that correct?
Sarah (PS1WU) [1303] No.
John (PS1WS) [1304] No.
[1305] So put your cursor on the I.
[1306] Get rid of the I R. ...
Sarah (PS1WU) [1307] Oh.
John (PS1WS) [1308] Okay that was a space.
[1309] So backspace delete to get rid of the space you've just put in.
[1310] Use your cursor to come along.
[1311] That's it.
[1312] And ... delete.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1313] Oh. ...
John (PS1WS) [1314] Then go along one and [...] .
Sarah (PS1WU) [1315] Alright and bring the cursor down.
John (PS1WS) [1316] [...] Now there was an aren't somewhere that you had.
[1317] Erm or a can't.
[1318] The aren't was okay [...] .
Sarah (PS1WU) [1319] Haven't.
John (PS1WS) [1320] Haven't.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1321] There.
John (PS1WS) [1322] Right okay.
[1323] So [...] ... Right.
[1324] And that looks okay so page up to the start of the document.
[1325] And now save it.
[1326] Because you've now got it the way you want it.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1327] Oh right yeah.
John (PS1WS) [1328] You've, you've just checked it all.
[1329] So you can save that.
[1330] Remember how to save?
Sarah (PS1WU) [1331] No.
John (PS1WS) [1332] F one F one.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1333] F one yeah.
John (PS1WS) [1334] F one F one.
[1335] And now where's save in that lot?
Sarah (PS1WU) [1336] Erm F ten.
John (PS1WS) [1337] Now, so, but you're still in [...] .
Sarah (PS1WU) [1338] Enter I can
John (PS1WS) [1339] En you're in help so.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1340] never remember that.
John (PS1WS) [1341] Okay now then N long document name sti still mumsy.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1342] Enter.
John (PS1WS) [1343] So enter yeah.
[1344] Still S L P.
[1345] [...] save it on that?
[1346] Yes.
[1347] Now what you're trying to do, is overwrite the old version that we had.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1348] Mhm.
John (PS1WS) [1349] It says, replace this one, you've already got one called that, do you want to write this on top of it?
[1350] In this case we do.
[1351] But sometimes
Sarah (PS1WU) [1352] Yeah.
John (PS1WS) [1353] you might not.
[1354] So if you just press, if, if you if you pressed enter, it's got the no highlighted, so it wouldn't automatically replace it.
[1355] Cos it's trying to be safe.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1356] Mm.
John (PS1WS) [1357] The default, the thing it'll do if you don't select something is no.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1358] Mm.
John (PS1WS) [1359] So you have to change that deliberately by typing a Y.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1360] Right.
[1361] So press Y.
John (PS1WS) [1362] So save it say Y and it'll save it.
[1363] So that's saved now.
[1364] If we mess up the printing we've still got that, and we can come back to it
Sarah (PS1WU) [1365] Right.
John (PS1WS) [1366] and try and print again.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1367] Okay.
John (PS1WS) [1368] So now you can turn the printer on. ...
Sarah (PS1WU) [1369] It's on.
John (PS1WS) [1370] Is it on?
[1371] Right excellent.
[1372] And try printing it.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1373] Right.
John (PS1WS) [1374] Remember how to print?
Sarah (PS1WU) [1375] Erm no.
[1376] F seven.
John (PS1WS) [1377] That's very [...]
Sarah (PS1WU) [1378] Shift F seven.
John (PS1WS) [1379] Good right.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1380] Right set
John (PS1WS) [1381] And this time we'll
Sarah (PS1WU) [1382] printer.
John (PS1WS) [1383] we'll have a preview first.
[1384] That, just have a look to see if it looks okay.
[1385] ... And we're on, let's have a look at the full page.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1386] Three.
John (PS1WS) [1387] That looks fine.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1388] That looks okay doesn't it?
John (PS1WS) [1389] Right
Sarah (PS1WU) [laugh]
John (PS1WS) [1390] Okay so escape,
Sarah (PS1WU) [1391] Escape.
John (PS1WS) [1392] to get out of the preview.
[1393] And then we want to print full document.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1394] So one.
John (PS1WS) [1395] Or F F is easier to remember for full document.
[1396] P for page, D for disk, C for control [...] . [printer noises] ... [break in recording] ...
Sarah (PS1WU) [1397] [...] was in here.
John (PS1WS) [1398] Well what?
Sarah (PS1WU) [1399] I don't know.
John (PS1WS) [1400] Feet?
Sue (PS1WT) [1401] Feet?
John (PS1WS) [1402] What was what was wrong with your ... little bit of WordPerfect [...] ?
Sue (PS1WT) [1403] Oh it's n cos it's not like at work where things don't go wrong at work for me any more.
John (PS1WS) [1404] Pardon?
[1405] You were saying that the problem you, the big problem you had at work was with your printer drivers.
Sue (PS1WT) [1406] No not any more I don't.
John (PS1WS) [1407] It's the same problem you had there.
Sue (PS1WT) [1408] Not any more I don't.
John (PS1WS) [1409] Well.
[1410] Cos you know about avoiding changing printers.
[1411] So the problem was caused with bringing a disk from one machine to another
Sue (PS1WT) [1412] Mhm.
[1413] I know.
John (PS1WS) [1414] with a different driver on it yeah.
[1415] But apart from that, apart from the printing, let's forget about the printing aspect.
[1416] How did you get on with the rest of it?
[1417] What did you think of it? [...] complained last time.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1418] No but if, if I if I talk ... by myself it's going to
John (PS1WS) [1419] So
Sarah (PS1WU) [1420] sound really false, isn't it?
Sue (PS1WT) [1421] Yes.
John (PS1WS) [1422] how did you get on with the word processing this afternoon then Sarah?
[1423] ... Who suggested that you that you should have a go?
Sarah (PS1WU) [1424] Mother.
John (PS1WS) [1425] What did she sugg how did she, how did she suggest it?
Sarah (PS1WU) [1426] Erm well she said, would you like [laughing] to go on the [] computer? and I said, fine, okay.
[1427] So she showed me her bits and bobs and [laughing] things like that [] .
John (PS1WS) [1428] The hardware, the keyboard and things.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1429] Yeah.
John (PS1WS) [1430] How to turn it on.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1431] Yeah.
John (PS1WS) [1432] What else did she show you?
Sarah (PS1WU) [1433] Erm basically how it works.
[1434] Erm
John (PS1WS) [1435] How does it work?
[1436] How, how do you turn it on?
Sarah (PS1WU) [1437] Erm by the switch by the telly. [laugh]
John (PS1WS) [1438] So how many switches to switch it on?
Sue (PS1WT) [1439] I didn't go I didn't go through a proper sort of ... instructive thing.
[1440] I honestly didn't I just brought it up.
John (PS1WS) [1441] Oh [...] I'll let it be known that your mother is a very good instructress.
[1442] She's good at teaching people all sorts of things, nice and calm and patient.
[1443] Not like some who are shouting, shift F seven, and shut up and, you know the sort of person.
[1444] She's not like that at all.
[1445] She's lovely.
[1446] Make a good tutor.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1447] There's Elaine Paige
Sue (PS1WT) [1448] I didn't, I didn't do any
Sarah (PS1WU) [1449] on telly.
[1450] There's Elaine Paige.
Sue (PS1WT) [1451] I didn't do anything really John.
[1452] I just brought up the files.
[1453] And went really straight into Sarah typing.
John (PS1WS) [1454] So you set up WordPerfect so she, with a blank screen for Sarah to type on.
[1455] And a new document.
[1456] Did you set, did you choose the document name?
Sue (PS1WT) [1457] Erm yes I did.
[1458] I thought that I'd created a new directory but I didn't. [laugh]
John (PS1WS) [1459] You used.
[1460] Thank you you were on the, you were on A drive.
[1461] ... So you typed, you, you, you set it up.
[1462] And nobody noticed that it said A colon and not C colon.
[1463] Cos nobody ever reads the bottom line with the poor computer
Sue (PS1WT) [1464] Well I do.
John (PS1WS) [1465] trying to talk to you and tell you something.
Sue (PS1WT) [1466] I do it's just that I
John (PS1WS) [1467] People are just interested in shouting at it aren't they?
Sue (PS1WT) [1468] No I was just
Sarah (PS1WU) [laugh]
Sue (PS1WT) [1469] simply just ... not noticing much on the screen really.
John (PS1WS) [1470] Right.
Sue (PS1WT) [1471] Sarah just wanted to type a little letter.
John (PS1WS) [1472] Mm.
Sue (PS1WT) [1473] I didn't actually feel in the mood to show her
John (PS1WS) [1474] Ah well [...] .
Sue (PS1WT) [1475] bits and all.
John (PS1WS) [1476] Answer that question.
Sue (PS1WT) [1477] Well I thought I was going to have the computer here for the whole time of Sarah's stay you see.
John (PS1WS) [1478] Well one of these days.
Sue (PS1WT) [1479] So I thought that there was plenty of time as this is my first day off from work.
John (PS1WS) [1480] Tonight?
[1481] This is
Sue (PS1WT) [1482] I didn't want to be thrust straight into it.
John (PS1WS) [1483] Tonight I'm going to transfer WordPerfect, from that one, from the three eight six, to the X T, so you'll be able to find it.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1484] Okay.
John (PS1WS) [1485] So when you started typing, how did you put the address in?
Sue (PS1WT) [1486] Oh that was a bit of fun wasn't it?
John (PS1WS) [1487] I thought that would be a bit of fun.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1488] How did I do [...] ?
John (PS1WS) [1489] How did you put the address
Sue (PS1WT) [1490] The address.
John (PS1WS) [1491] In?
[1492] Forty
Sue (PS1WT) [1493] Getting across to the right-hand side.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1494] Erm ... I moved the cursor.
John (PS1WS) [1495] Mhm.
Sue (PS1WT) [1496] Yeah she did a load of indents to start with.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1497] Oh yes and then I done, I did er I put forty two A north and then I went to put street and I wrote it in, typed it in, but it went underneath forty two A.
[1498] And I thought ooh [laughing] so []
John (PS1WS) [1499] That was clever.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1500] I shouted mum.
John (PS1WS) [1501] You set up, set an indent then.
Sue (PS1WT) [1502] No but the street was in the wrong
John (PS1WS) [1503] Or a hanging paragraph?
Sue (PS1WT) [1504] was not on the same line.
John (PS1WS) [1505] No but it was, was it immediately below the forty two?
Sue (PS1WT) [1506] Yes.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1507] Mm.
John (PS1WS) [1508] So you set up some sort of indent.
Sue (PS1WT) [1509] If you press F four.
[1510] Right if you're doing something, just doing a straight bit of text which
Sarah (PS1WU) [1511] Mm.
Sue (PS1WT) [1512] was just straight typing
Sarah (PS1WU) [1513] Mm.
Sue (PS1WT) [1514] and then you suddenly want to indent, which is say come in five s five spaces
Sarah (PS1WU) [1515] Yeah.
Sue (PS1WT) [1516] five space
Sarah (PS1WU) [1517] Yeah.
Sue (PS1WT) [1518] bars to set it in.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1519] Mm.
Sue (PS1WT) [1520] If you press F four, from the margin,F function F four key.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1521] Yeah.
Sue (PS1WT) [1522] It sets in automatically five spaces.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1523] Yeah.
Sue (PS1WT) [1524] Right.
[1525] And it wraps round.
[1526] Right.
[1527] So it gets to the end of the line and it will come back and adjust itself and go under the ... the
Sarah (PS1WU) [1528] Yeah.
[1529] The
Sue (PS1WT) [1530] the first line
Sarah (PS1WU) [1531] Yeah.
Sue (PS1WT) [1532] indent.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1533] Mm.
Sue (PS1WT) [1534] All the way down until you don't want it any more.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1535] Mm.
Sue (PS1WT) [1536] And then you put a return in at the end of that and it goes back to the margin again.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1537] Okay.
Sue (PS1WT) [1538] It's clever that.
John (PS1WS) [1539] What do you think of the little hearts every time you put an enter?
Sarah (PS1WU) [1540] I wondered what was going [laughing] on.
[1541] By, by the end of the time when I er did the address I had about ten hearts all over the screen [] .
John (PS1WS) [1542] Well with most word processors
Sue (PS1WT) [1543] So I did F eleven and, and revealed the codes and deleted it all.
John (PS1WS) [1544] Very good.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1545] Mm hard software and s
Sue (PS1WT) [1546] I showed her that.
John (PS1WS) [1547] Yes we tried that.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1548] and software.
John (PS1WS) [1549] Hard return and soft returns.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1550] Hard return soft return.
Sue (PS1WT) [1551] Yeah.
John (PS1WS) [1552] Well ... well with most word processors, you don't use return, you just keep typing and it automatically says well I won't fit this [...] .
Sue (PS1WT) [1553] It wraps round that's the expression.
John (PS1WS) [1554] Wrap round.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1555] Mhm.
John (PS1WS) [1556] And that set up still [...]
Sue (PS1WT) [...]
John (PS1WS) [1557] most word processors won't show when you've got a new line character.
[1558] When you press enter it stores a character in your file.
[1559] It says right get on to a new line.
[1560] Most of them don't show it but you can set it to show it.
[1561] So I've set that one to show it.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1562] Okay.
Sue (PS1WT) [1563] Oh stop squeezing my fat
Sarah (PS1WU) [laugh]
John (PS1WS) [1564] Squeezing your fat what?
Sarah (PS1WU) [1565] I'm not.
Sue (PS1WT) [1566] Thigh.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1567] I'm just stroking.
John (PS1WS) [1568] Can you make it clear
Sue (PS1WT) [1569] Hip.
John (PS1WS) [1570] for the tape, that it was not I what squeezed your thigh.
Sarah (PS1WU) [laugh]
John (PS1WS) [1571] Fat or otherwise.
[1572] It was her there.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1573] It was I. ...
John (PS1WS) [1574] So a lot of problems just getting the address in. ...
Sarah (PS1WU) [1575] Not really. [laugh]
Sue (PS1WT) [1576] Oh no [...] .
[1577] Oh no.
John (PS1WS) [1578] Well let's say let's say was it quicker was it would it have been, quicker writing the address by hand?
Sarah (PS1WU) [1579] Oh yeah it wa it wasn't a big thing that [...] was a major mistake. [laugh]
John (PS1WS) [1580] It's alright, it's alright.
[1581] Not getting it right first time [...] .
Sarah (PS1WU) [1582] It's all about learning basically isn't it?
John (PS1WS) [1583] Exactly.
Sue (PS1WT) [1584] You learn by mistakes that's
Sarah (PS1WU) [1585] It's all learning yeah.
Sue (PS1WT) [1586] Right I did [...] .
Sarah (PS1WU) [1587] In every aspect of life.
John (PS1WS) [...]
Sue (PS1WT) [1588] That's right.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1589] Life is learning. ... [laugh]
John (PS1WS) [1590] Learning is life. ...
Sarah (PS1WU) [1591] Life means learning. [...]
John (PS1WS) [1592] Once you got started
Sarah (PS1WU) [1593] Life is hassle.
[1594] Life is problems.
[1595] When
John (PS1WS) [1596] opportunities, opportunities.
[1597] And once you got started typing the main part of the letter, you were alright then?
Sarah (PS1WU) [1598] Mm.
John (PS1WS) [1599] Just about.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1600] I just whip whipped away.
[1601] Took about an hour and a quarter to [laughing] do [] but there you go.
Sue (PS1WT) [1602] Actually.
John (PS1WS) [1603] Can you remember how many words you did?
Sarah (PS1WU) [1604] Four hundred and fifty three. ...
Sue (PS1WT) [1605] I did show you how to do.
Sarah (PS1WU) [laugh]
John (PS1WS) [1606] How did you find out?
Sarah (PS1WU) [1607] You tried to catch me out there didn't you?
[1608] You said, how many words did you do?
[1609] Four hundred and fifty three. [laugh]
John (PS1WS) [1610] No.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1611] Pardon?
Sue (PS1WT) [1612] I did show Sarah how to do the backspace to delete, when she made a mistake, instead of
John (PS1WS) [1613] Mm.
[1614] Instead of leaving it.
Sue (PS1WT) [1615] Well not only instead of leaving it but using, she wasn't quite sure [...] she was pressing delete and
Sarah (PS1WU) [1616] It did [...] no I had an E on the er
John (PS1WS) [1617] Delete does work.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1618] the cursor I had an E on the
Sue (PS1WT) [1619] Delete does work if you use
John (PS1WS) [1620] It deletes.
Sue (PS1WT) [1621] the cursor key in fact.
John (PS1WS) [1622] Delete will delete
Sue (PS1WT) [...]
John (PS1WS) [1623] whatever character is at the cursor at the moment.
[1624] Backspace delete, or backspace one and then delete.
Sue (PS1WT) [1625] Onto the character.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1626] Oh yeah.
John (PS1WS) [1627] Right.
Sue (PS1WT) [1628] I'm going out now.
John (PS1WS) [1629] Cos I remember you saying on the X T that the ... delete key wouldn't work.
[1630] [...] backspace delete.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1631] What, are you going to the offie?
Sue (PS1WT) [1632] Yeah I just want to get some orange juice.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1633] I'll come with you.
Sue (PS1WT) [1634] Is that alright?
John (PS1WS) [1635] It's fine.
[1636] Can you take this home so you can finish off the tape?
[1637] Preferably talking about WordPerfect.
[1638] Or something structured.
[1639] We've only got about three minutes to go on that.
[1640] And it's half nine now.
[1641] So what did you think of the, the session altogether?
[1642] What did you think of having two
Sarah (PS1WU) [1643] I think
John (PS1WS) [1644] two tutors at one time
Sue (PS1WT) [1645] Well
John (PS1WS) [1646] did you think that worked?
Sue (PS1WT) [1647] No probably it didn't, I mean
John (PS1WS) [1648] Right.
Sue (PS1WT) [1649] you see the thing is
Sarah (PS1WU) [1650] [...] confusing because you've got two people bringing in the ideas ,
Sue (PS1WT) [1651] Yeah well you see John's got about twenty five years' experience with computers on me.
[1652] I'm, I'm still a novice Sarah.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1653] No I'm just saying it's harder for me, it was harder to have two people tutoring me because I, you were coming in with suggestions that you know already, you weren't, like then John was coming in
Sue (PS1WT) [1654] I know, I know, yes I'm sure, I'm sure but you kno that's right.
[1655] But in actual fact I think that ... for preliminary erm instruction I'm, I would be better.
[1656] Because I wouldn't confuse Sarah with a lot of technicality.
John (PS1WS) [1657] What was the main point
Sue (PS1WT) [1658] But
John (PS1WS) [1659] in your session?
Sue (PS1WT) [1660] Me?
John (PS1WS) [1661] Mm.
[1662] The session that you started with Sarah, what was the main
Sue (PS1WT) [1663] Oh because I didn't tell her enough about the keyboard and, and the
John (PS1WS) [1664] Why did it all go wrong?
[1665] Why was it wrong when I came in?
Sue (PS1WT) [1666] Well because I always feel that you want to
John (PS1WS) [1667] No before I came in it was wrong.
[1668] You couldn't print
Sue (PS1WT) [1669] No it wasn't.
John (PS1WS) [1670] you couldn't print
Sue (PS1WT) [1671] Oh I see what you
John (PS1WS) [1672] so
Sue (PS1WT) [1673] mean oh you're talking about [...] I thought you meant
John (PS1WS) [1674] How, why, why had that why had that gone wrong?
Sue (PS1WT) [1675] What do you mean, why had it, what do you mean, why had it gone wrong?
John (PS1WS) [1676] What, what had caused it?
[1677] Why wasn't it printing?
Sue (PS1WT) [1678] Oh because I was on th I [...] misread it all.
[1679] And it
John (PS1WS) [1680] Okay cos it, cos it started
Sue (PS1WT) [1681] Drive
John (PS1WS) [1682] off on an A drive.
Sue (PS1WT) [1683] Yeah.
John (PS1WS) [1684] And it was picking up printer drivers from the A drive.
Sarah (PS1WU) [1685] Mm.
John (PS1WS) [1686] Not a very intelligent package.
[1687] A load of rubbish.
Sue (PS1WT) [1688] I mean I er I mean [...] I had a lot of trouble
John (PS1WS) [1689] [...] what do you think of it compared to Microsoft's Word?
Sue (PS1WT) [1690] today.
