However, with the advent of printing, it was found that the people were interested to read and write perticularly with those who did not live with or near them. Development of printing has made it probable for us to use of capability to read, as books on hundreds of various subjects, magazines and newspapers are published at prices, which are within most of our reach.

The situation is pretty different today, as we have access to printed books, magazines and newspapers. The invention of printing has therefore aided in the movement to spread knowledge among the many.
