There was a software program long ago for (I think) Macs that interfaced with the word processor - and would produce "clicky" sounds for key presses and a "ding" bell sound when the program would begin a new line.

But did the keys get mangled up if you typed too quickly, and your fingers covered in red/black ink from changing ribbons ?

The creator of the program posted somewhere in the ePub thread here on MR. Atlantis Ocean Mind also produces ePub directly from the word processor. It's my favourite word processor for many reasons, and it's extremely writer friendly (I think it's better than Word).

Er.. I should say it can export the document as ePub from the word-processor with working TOC and metadata. I love it for that reason alone

Atlantis Ocean Mind is the name of the Word Processor, sorry, should have been clearer. Here's a link to the website: http://www.atlantiswordprocessor.com/en/

Atlantis Nova is the free version without typewriter sounds. But still very good.

Here it is in action (Running under Wine in Linux):

he he

I used to use the typewriter, and also the similarly designed teleprinter, and the mess we used to get into when the keys jammed or the ribbon needed changing - especially at 2 or 3 o'clock in a morning ....
