Abstract

This combination provides a low cost key input means for a CRT-based system. A Key entry function is available at low cost by using the CRT scan to determine key strikes. A CRT typewriter or terminal is formed by integrating the disclosed mechanism to the bottom of the CRT. The balance of the CRT is used for text or terminal display.
