A printing mode in which the printer prints text as fast as possible without regard to the print quality. Most dot-matrix printers support two modes: draft mode and either letter-quality (LQ) or near letter quality (NLQ) mode. In addition, many word processors support a draft mode in which they display and print pages without all the formatting detail specified for the document.
