Thanks for informing us, Lourdes. How frustrating for you!
Each printer manufacturer creates their own software, called a printer
driver. You would think they would have included printer drivers for both
Windows 98 and Windows 95 when you bought the machine.
But it is good for me to know about these issues - that is the very reason

We are making some progress on SignWriter 5.0, although slow. At the moment
our programmer, Larry Peranich, is working on the foreign keyboards. We
will have keyboards for 15 countries.
