This book deals with a topical issue relating to the use of script in Japan, one which has the potential to reshape future script policy through the mediation of both orthographic practices and social relations. It tells the story of the impact of one of the most significant technological breakthroughs in Japan in the latter part of this century: the invention and rapid adoption of word-processing technology capable of handling Japanese script in a society where the nature of that script had previously mandated handwriting as the norm. The ramifications of this technology in both the business and personal spheres have been wide-ranging, extending from changes to business practices, work profiles, orthography and social attitudes to writing through to Japan's ability to construct a substantial presence on the Internet in recent years.... vertical text Tatsuoka Hiroshi 97 technological determinism xii TApyAp Kanji Hyo see List of Characters for Interim Use typista#39;s duties 15, 18, 20, 50, ... typewriters and Hemingway 149a€“50 compared with handwriting speed 13, 15, 19a€“20, 43a€“4, 47 efficiency of 23a€“5 hiragana typewriter ... typewriter 21 Unnesao Tadao 23, 65- 6 Underwood 16a€“7 Unicode 186a€“7, 201, 203n Vertical text 72a€“3 WJE-FEP 48, 76, anbsp;...
