Abstract

The use of existing hardware to automatically feed printer output into alphabetically labeled trays of a sorter in accordance with electronic address information is disclosed. As shown in the Figure, sorter 30 has a plurality of alphabetically labeled output trays 32. The sorter is mounted to printer 20. When, for example, the system transports a document from the printer to the sorter in the direction of arrow 22, an electronic signal actuates a lever 26 to index that document to a given tray, in the direction of arrow 24, which corresponds to the address of the individual whose job is being printed. Thus, the system simplifies the retrieval of an output document from an electronic printer.
