Abstract

Electronic reprographic systems and high volume duplicators typically have a CRT based User Interface (UI) with menu driven selection capabilities. The newer systems, with complex operator options and multilevel screen presentations of machine controls, often make it difficult for the casual user to walk up to such a machine and perform simple tasks.
