Abstract

A print/correction table is automatically printed on a sheet of paper that is to be used by a machine, such as a typewriter, for example, when a user keys a special coded function key. Visual examination of the table enables the user to set a contrast control switch to obtain a desired character contrast and a correction mode switch to obtain optimum print with corrections. The quality of print and correction on a printer using a resistive ribbon and a thermal print head is dependent on many variables including the ribbon and the characteristics of the paper being used. To obtain the best results, the user sets a five-position contrast control switch to select one of five contrasts and a two-position correction mode switch to select one of two correction modes.

Print/Correction Table for Assistance in Setting Contrast Control and Single/Double Correction Mode Switches

A print/correction table is automatically printed on a sheet of paper that is to be used by a machine, such as a typewriter, for example, when a user keys a special coded function key. Visual examination of the table enables the user to set a contrast control switch to obtain a desired character contrast and a correction mode switch to obtain optimum print with corrections. The quality of print and correction on a printer using a resistive ribbon and a thermal print head is dependent on many variables including the ribbon and the characteristics of the paper being used. To obtain the best results, the user sets a five-position contrast control switch to select one of five contrasts and a two-position correction mode switch to select one of two correction modes. With the print/correction table being automatically generated when the user keys a special coded function key, the user may visually inspect the five different contrasts and select the desired contrast to use. At the same time, the single correction result and the double correction result for each of the five different contrasts are shown in the table in two rows beneath a first row having the same printed characters, which is representative of the print and includes ascending and descending characters, with the five different contrasts. This enables the user to determine whether a single correction...
