    Typewriter Anomalies

    Henry Rosenberg Tracker

      This might be a silly, unnecessary question but, anyone who has used a typewriter will remember that when you reached the end of a line, the typewriter would stop and many times you would type over the previous letter. In the case when we are transcribing, if we see double letters, is it okay to spell the word as if it the letters were typed consecutively?

       

      Thanks,
