CaDD Electronics has received permision from Texas Instruments to reproduce the origingal manuals that came with some 99/4A cartriges. The information below was posted by Mike Wright to the 99/4A list server.
PC99 PHx manuals are supplied in WordPerfect Envoy runtime format. Envoy is a portable document format that maintains the line endings, page breaks, formatting and font information contained in a document created by an application such as WordPerfect. The supplied Envoy format is a PC executable file (.EXE) and contains the Envoy runtime viewer. It must be run under MS Windows or Windows 95. To view a PHx manual from a diskette in drive A: Windows 3.x Windows 95 Pull down the File menu Click the Start button Select Run Click Run Enter a:\phxnnnn.exe Enter a:\phxnnnn.exe where: x = c for cassette, d for diskette, or m for command module; and nnnn is the original TI product number. For example: the Structural Engineering Library is PHD5016; the Diagnostic command module is PHM3000. When the manual is displayed you have access to Envoy's features. You can use its menus to: - Search for any text in the document - Print the document using your Windows printer driver - Highlight selected sections of the document - Add your own notes The PC99 PHx manuals were created by scanning original Texas Instruments manuals twice, using a Hewlett Packard ScanJet IICX color scanner. In the first pass the text areas were converted to editable text using Omnipage 6.0 optical character recognition (OCR) software. In the second pass, the graphics were scanned directly using HP Deskscan II v2.1 and stored in TIFF 5.0 format. The text was then edited, marked up for typography changes (italic, bold, and headings) and spell-checked. Unlike the original, we have numbered all headings, and used them to generate a table of contents. Corrections have been made to fix original errors. However, it is possible that new errors have been introduced. If you find one please let us know and we will fix it. The graphics were converted from TIFF to WPG using Hijaak. Black and white graphics were scanned at 600 dpi. Color covers were scanned at 100 dpi to save storage space, and converted to 16-color WPG format. Because of this, the covers will only be representative of the original color. In some cases, the covers might be "blotchy". There are also some minor changes to the page layouts. In most cases we have simplified some of the TI layouts to save time in formatting. Pages have also been re-numbered so that the first page of the manual text is page 1. For many of the 8.5" x 5.5" manuals, the original page breaks have been preserved. Some of the TI manuals contained indexes. These have not been created because of time constraints. Instead, you can use Envoy's search feature to locate any text. The PC99 PHx manual files are distributed in terms of our software license agreement with Texas Instruments. The following conditions apply to the distribution: "Reproduced with the permission of the publisher Copyright (1979-1983) Texas Instruments Incorporated.

------------------------------------------------------------ In addition to the PHM manuals listed above, we are working our way through the PHD (diskette) series. In some cases customers have requested a manual (such as text-to-speech), and we have gone out of order and produced it. Depending on the complexity of the manual, it can take up to a week to produce a new one. The worst cases are lots of graphics (such as in Logo II), material that does not OCR properly (such as math), and poorly reproduced manuals. Surprisingly some of the printed manuals were poorly inked and scan badly, but the most common offenders are things that were only partially ready for release (such as the Course Designer Authoring Package -- which is now done!).
