Abstract

In typewriters having cartridges which oscillate to place the ribbon between the typing element and the platen and achieve a correction mode by elevating the cartridge still higher to place a correction ribbon intermediate the typing element and the platen, the constant fluttering of the cartridge during typing can be disconcerting to the typist. Moreover, the opening in the typewriter in which the cartridge is placed allows noise to readily escape.
