This KS3 ICT quiz takes a further look at processing text and images. A word processor is a computer application used for the production (including composition, editing, formatting, and possibly printing) of any sort of printable material. We have said 'possibly printing' because usually, desktop publishing (DTP) software will be used to lay out the pages, to include both text and images. Some people attempt to use word processing software to layout the whole publication. This can be done but is much more difficult and less reliable than using a DTP program.
When using a word processor, you can use the built-in spell checker and grammar checker. It is much better to learn grammar and how to spell properly if you can. The aim of proofreading is to check through your work after you think you have finished. You can then spot any spelling mistakes and errors of grammar and put them right. Relying completely on your computer program for proofreading is not a good choice. It might not find missing words, it won't spot correctly spelt words like their and there used in the wrong context, and some of the words you use may not be in the dictionary it uses.
