Disk No: 2656 Disk Title: The SPELLBOUND! Spelling Tutor PC-SIG Version: S1.0 Program Title: The SPELLBOUND! Spelling Tutor Author Version: 2.00 Author Registration: $15.00, $25.00, #35.00 Special Requirements: 384K RAM, CGA/VGA/EGA, DOS 3.0, and two floppy dri THE SPELLBOUND! SPELLING TUTOR helps you improve your spelling skills, no matter what your grade level. It can even help adults learn to spell difficult words from a specialized field like law or medicine. For children, there are optional animated "smileys" who cheer the child on when a word is spelled properly, but shed tears when a word is misspelled. SPELLBOUND! features word list creation, editing, viewing, and maintenance functions as well as a full battery of teaching tools like automatic grading and report generation. As it teaches spelling, a personal "difficult word" list is created for each student. An impressively simple user interface makes SPELLBOUND! a wise choice among even the most popular commercial programs.

+============================================================+ | I N S T A L L A T I O N -- 2 F L O P P Y S Y S T E M | +============================================================+ (1.) Format two blank floppy diskettes in the following manner: Place your DOS diskette containing FORMAT.COM into drive A: and a blank diskette into drive B:. Type "A:FORMAT B:" press ENTER. This will be your PROGRAM diskette. When it is finished, format another diskette in the same way. This will be your DATA diskette. (2.) Place the SPELLBOUND! diskette into drive A: and with the blank formatted PROGRAM diskette still in drive B:, do the following. Type: "A:INSTALL" press ENTER, read all of the instructions and follow the prompts. Both destination diskettes will be inserted into drive B: at the proper time. (3.) If everything went okay, your program is now ready to run! Place the PROGRAM diskette into drive A:, the DATA diskette (containing SPELL.WDS, SPELL.DOC, etc. into drive B:, type: "B:" (this will change you to drive B:) and then type: "SPELL" and press ENTER.
+===============================================================+ | I N S T A L L A T I O N -- H A R D O R H D D R I V E | +===============================================================+ (1.) a: Type: "A:INSTALL" (without quotes) press ENTER. b: Read all of the instructions, and follow the prompts. The INSTALL program can make some very necessary changes to AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS for you, or you can make them yourself if you are leery of having installation programs mess with your system. If you choose to have the program do it for you, the original copies of your programs will be backed up first, so the changes are reversible. If you have the program make these changes for you, then skip step (2.). (2.) Add the program directory to your PATH environment variable in AUTOEXEC.BAT or at the DOS prompt. If you already have a PATH statement in AUTOEXEC.BAT, then append a semicolon before appending the directory. Example: PATH C:\DOS;C:\UTIL;C:\WP;C:\SPELL If there is no PATH statement in your AUTOEXEC.BAT file, then you must enter the following: (Assuming the PROGRAM files were installed in "C:\SPELL") PATH C:\SPELL The PATH environment variable tells DOS where to search for commands it cannot find in the current directory. When you type "SPELL" from the DATA directory, DOS will not be able to find SPELL.EXE in the current directory. It will look through the directories listed in the PATH statement.
IMPORTANT! If you have a hard drive system with a single High density drive, you will first have to install to a single directory on your hard drive, and then copy all the files from that directory to the diskette.
