A keyboard to facsimile transmission device allowing the direct imputting of a sequence of identifying signals representing alpha-numeric characters and delimiters comprising a message to be transmitted to a facsimile machine for printing thereby. The messages are input to a keyboard employing an LCD display panel in a text editing mode. The messages are digitized from stored font definitions and output on a line-by-line basis in the form of a pseudo page including spacing areas of non-characters inserted by the logic according to a pre-established page definition. Stored forms character sequences can be intermeshed with inputs from the keyboard to allow the user to operate in a self-prompting mode. A digitized signature or small hand drawing can be inserted with the text for transmitting orders, checks, credit vouchers, or the like, requiring a verifying signature. The font definitions include pixel replication for reduced memory and time requirements. Both military and commercial applications are described.
