The Future of Writing

Lecture no. 24 from the course: Writing and Civilization: From Ancient Worlds to Modernity

The Future of Writing

Taught by Professor Marc Zender | 32 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Literature & Language Courses

Will typing replace handwriting? Will e-books make printed books obsolete? Will speech-to-text software replace our need to physically write at all? Join Professor Zender as he speculates about the future of writing based on past developments, from the invention of movable type to new signs and spelling conventions inspired by the QWERTY keyboard.
