New generation Motorola Alpha-numeric prod- ucts will support a message scrolling display mode feature in addition to a standard screen-by-screen mode. The message scrolling feature will scroll stored message across the screen one pixel column at a time thus eliminating choppiness associated with a screen by screen display mode. The message scroll can be stopped and restarted aher a button press thus allowing the user to Freeze the display on a desired information. Message scroll is a useful fea- ture but it doesn't take into account different read- ing speeds for different reading levels of pager users.
