Abstract

Personal financial software products are very popular, but these financial packages are only as good as the information entered. In order to get information from cash register receipts into their financial software: users manually enter the information from cash register receipts into financial software running on a Personal Computer (PC) or users manually enter the information from cash register receipts into financial software running on a Personal Digital Assistant (PDA), and then later transfer this financial data from the PDA to financial software running on a PC. This manual entry of data is time consuming and error prone.
