Abstract

Most typewriters are equipped with a visual device, which indicates how close the typed information is to the bottom of the page. However, these types of devices require frequent monitoring by the operator to ensure that the bottom margin of the typed page is not encroached by the typed material. This is an interruptive procedure, which requires constant shifting of the eyes of the operator from the work being typed to the indicator device and then back again to the work, etc.
