Abstract:

THE Typed Page Reader, ANFST-6, is capable of reading upper case letters, numerals, and some punctuation marks in several variations of the Standard Elite type font. Lines must be doublespaced and a one inch margin provided on all sides. Typed characters may be misplaced due to typewriter misalignment. They may be misplaced by as much as 10 degrees in the horizontal andor vertical direction or they may be tilted approximately 5 degrees without causing appreciable degradation of reading accuracy. Considerable character mutilation and some smudging may be tolerated in portions of characters that are not required or that are of lesser importance in recognition. However, only a small degree of mutilation is permitted in key areas of characters, such as the opening in letter C or the solid top of letter R. Within the above limitations, copy can be read with an accuracy of approximately 98. It has been observed that the great majority of reading errors is due to the pronounced overlap charcteristic of the Standard Elite type font. Some of these errors are caused by the overlap itself and others are due to the circuit limitations imposed by the requirements of reading overlapped or touching characters. Author
