Woman Shocked As 'N-Word' Appears In Typing Test

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) ― A woman was stunned and a software company apologetic after an offensive word showed up on a computerized typing test. Monica Loadholdt was using Perfect Typing Pro, a software program made by Cosmi, when the 'N word' showed up in one of the typing exercises.

"I just stopped," Monica remembers. "I said, 'What did I just type here?'"

Monica quickly sent an e-mail to the Cosmi Corportation. Cosmi replied to CBS13, saying, "It is in no way something we would ever desire to have in our software. It was a mistake not caught by our quality assurance team.'"

They also indicated that they offered Monica an apology, but she says she hasn't received any reply. "I would appreciate a response, I think I deserve that," she said.

Cosmi has already made a fix. A patch is available that removes the offensive passage from the program.

Must not have been that N-word. I'd think a black person wouldn't have a problem recognizing that one.
