Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0576113A2] In this method, quantities are provided by a control device (6) of the franking machine before a print request, with a) generation of a combination number (KOZ1), b) encryption of the combination number (KOZ1) into a crypto-number (KRZ1) and c) conversion of the crypto-number (KRZ1) into at least one row of marking symbols (MSR1) by means of a set (SSY1) of symbols. An unmistakeable machine readable and manually analysable marking is assembled column by column with the remaining variable data already embedded in the frame data during the printing of the entire franking machine pattern. The symbols are selected from the aspect of good distinguishability and the associated possibility of interpreting the image content of the symbol in speech. <IMAGE>
