Abstract

The use of motion sensor and voice activation circuits in a document reproduction machine to provide additional information to a user is disclosed. There is shown in Figure 1 a perspective front view of a document reproduction machine 2, which incorporates the motion sensing and voice activation circuits. Machine 2 uses an imaging system which includes a Raster Input Scanner (RIS) and a Raster Output Scanner (ROS). A printer of this general construction is disclosed in U.S. Patent 5,170,340, whose contents are hereby incorporated by reference. The basic components of machine 2 are xerographic module 4, which houses the imaging optical system, which can be conventional scan optics to project an image onto a photoreceptor drum or belt, or a Raster Input Scanner (RIS)
