The lady on Gumtree who advertised this tattered and yellowed instruction guide for a Brother CE-700 electronic typewriter for a few dollars (rather than throw it in the bin) deserves almost as much credit as I do for scanning it.

Kudos to Brother Industries for manufacturing such a good electronic typewriter (I’m sure it must be, even if I don’t own one).

The CE-700 was introduced in 1989 as an update on the Brother CE-650 and, like its predecessor, has a respectable speed of 15 characters-per-second, which is better than most portables. Thanks to an acoustic cover it’s probably quieter too.
