n. ~ The use of a computer to create, edit, manipulate, analyze, store, display, or print written words.

Notes: 

Text processing includes more than word processing, which is focused on documents. Text processing includes, for example, optical character recognition (OCR), formatting, and creation of concordances. Text processing packages are often specialized for one particular function, such as parsing noun phrases, where word processing connotes packages that integrate many different functions.
