Sharp Font Writer FW-760 UM

 The Sharp FontWriter FW-760 is a neat, portable solution. Although larger than the StarWriter, it is nevertheless compact and weighs no more than 5.5kg. It neatly combines an easy-to-read backlit (114 by 35mm) LCD display and built-in mono printer. It offers eight applications: word processor, spreadsheet, address book, label printing, utilities, multilingual translator, card printing, and clip art, and also has a DOS- compatible floppy disc drive for unlimited document storage. A novel feature of the FW-760 is the multilingual document generator, which converts from a series of document templates into French, German, Italian or Spanish.

The WordPerfect-compatible word processor works with WYSIWYG text, pull-down menus, an on-screen help guide and comprehensive spell-check and thesaurus. There's a choice of five fonts in up to 20 sizes and five shading patterns and character outline with a wide range of graphic symbols. A Lotus 1-2-3-compatible spreadsheet has a choice of three file formats and incorporates an automatic chart/graph drawing function.
