Single Character Storage

In a keyboard like that described in U. S. Patent 3,086,635 each output character generated is stored by the addition of latches 10 on output interposers
11. Upon depression of a subsequent character, key bail 12 acting through link 13 and trigger 14 pivots and releases bail lever 15 to release latches 10.

Any characters can be continued automatically by first depressing the character key and then depressing repeat key 16 which simply activates cycle- clutch control bail 17. The interposers 11 being stored by latches 10 will reliably generate the desired character during each cycle of the keyboard.

Character storage by latches 10 makes it possible to easily generate the automatic sequence "backspace, over-print, previously selected character". This is useful for erasing characters through a cover-up material or by an adhesive material.
