first who actually manufactured the first practical typewriter was Christopher Scholes, a second model was patented in 1868 (exceeding the speed of this machine is finally handwriting), and with the help of SW Soule and G. Glidden.

Scholes sold the rights over the typewriter Densmore, Densmore and improved the typewriter and usability Philo Remington market using the machine. There was an immediate success, however. The first offered Scholes and Glidden typewriter for sale 1873 It was not until several years later that Remington engineers on the device and perfected to become successful and sales by leaps and bounds. The first typewriter is sold for $ 125th About 5,000 were sold in the next four years, and about six different models have emerged at that time because of the development. On some machines return (carriage return), you can use the foot pedal.

The 1970 Remington was also used, and most of the students had to finish the RSA certificate to enter. It took a lot of time and care, and if an error has occurred Tippex was used to correct the errors. In the 1980s, computers become more advanced course and is now a modern computer (thank goodness for that)!
