AbstractPerformance at a simulated realistic task, check value verification of handwritten numerals, was tested under different illumination levels. Verification speed and accuracy improved with illumination level up to about 5,000 lx. Legibility of handwritten numerals was important to performance, poorer handwriting being more difficult. Performance for all checks improved at the same rate with illumination level.
