  • Page 294: Code Structure, Introduction, Signature Capture Area

    Appendix F Signature Capture Code Introduction CapCode, a signature capture code, is a special pattern that encloses a signature area on a document and allows a scanner to capture a signature. There are several accepted patterns that allow automatic identification of different signatures on the same form. For example, on the federal tax return 1040 form there are three signature areas, one each for two joint filers, and one for a professional preparer.

    F - 2 Symbol DS3508 Product Reference Guide CapCode Pattern Structure A CapCode pattern structure consists of a start pattern followed by a separator space, a signature capture box, a second separator space, and then a stop pattern. Assuming that X is the dimension of the thinnest element, the start and stop patterns each contains 9X total width in 4 bars and 3 spaces.
