Point Of Sale Terminal having Improved Visibility of Documents

Retail point-of-sale terminal 10 has a printing station 11 configured t allow handwritten data on a sales slip or other document 12 to be read and keyed in by an operator, and the same or computed data printed out on the same line 13 of document 12.

Front panel 14 of terminal 10 contains a display 15 as well as other controls and a keyboard (not shown). Document 12 is slid onto bed 16, aligned with guide rail 17, whence it is advanced by an internal printer mechanism. The downward slope of machine cover 18 and clear plastic viewing window 19 allow handwritten information on line 13 to be seen at a sufficient depth that the internal print head can operate on the same line. The operator can then verify the printed and the handwritten information together through the viewing window
19.
