Description

from VIE (written by Alex Lux) - Compaq Compatibles Keyboard/Scanner- This keyboard was introduced by Compaq in 1996. The all-in-one design incorporated a built-in monochrome scanner above the usual keys. Designed to save space on cluttered desks, this combination device was compatible with Microsoft Windows and accepted a wide range of scannable materials, from newspaper pages to business cards. With its optical character recognition (OCR) capabilities, courtesy of PaperPort and Xerox Textbridge software, the Compatibles could scan a page every six seconds and OCR text of font size of 10 point size or greater.
