Text Assist for 5250 offers a convenient way to access IBM's OfficeVision for OS/400 Text Assist application from a 5250 display session. In addition, several enhancements are provided to make the use of this application easier and more productive. For example, you can make text bold and underlined with a single keystroke; not several as required from a terminal. You also get the built-in advantages of working with the Text Assist application from a 5250 display session, such as exchanging data between the host and PC applications and working with multiple applications at the same time.
