Abstract
(EN)
A substrate, particularly a printed document such as an invoice, is provided with machine-readable markings representing data in encoded form. The markings (B), shown enlarged at (C), comprise at least one line of successive characters, each character being defined by a series of localised dots, the series of dots extending perpendicular to the line of characters. Thus, a document may be printed, using a dot matrix printer, with machine-readable marking occupying a small area and representing some of the human-readable information also printed on the document: using a decoder, the recipient of the document may read the machine-readable markings and enter them directly into his computer database.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un support, notamment un document imprimé tel qu'une facture, contenant des marques exploitables par machine qui représentent des données sous forme codée. Les marques (B), représentées sous forme agrandie en (C), comprennent au moins une ligne de caractères successifs, chaque caractère étant défini par une série de points localisés, s'étendant perpendiculairement à la ligne de caractères. Un document peut ainsi être imprimé à l'aide d'une imprimante par points, les marques exploitables par machine occupant une petite surface et représentant une partie des informations lisibles par l'homme qui sont également imprimées sur le document. Ainsi, avec un décodeur, le destinataire du document peut lire les marques exploitables par machine et les entrer directement dans sa base de données informatique.
