Jam recovery time for a high-speed reader/sorter is improved by diverting documents destined for the jam site to a standard reject pocket which for other reasons contains documents requiring manual attention. A user-settable threshold permits a selected number of such documents to pass to the jam site rather than be diverted to the reject bin, where desired.
